Bobby Lashley won the WWE Title this week on RAW, and fans have reacted in a big way. The interest is also evident by the view count the video received.
As of this writing, the YouTube video alone of Bobby Lashley finally getting his hands on The Miz has 1.1 million views. This is the most-viewed video of the night, by far.
Even the Bad Bunny videos were dwarfed by Lashley’s title win. One Bad Bunny video of a backstage segment has 96k, and the match where he stood at ringside has just over 223k as of this writing.
The video also has 43k “thumbs up” and only 2.5k “thumbs down.” That is a good ratio, but it’s still a lot of engagement. It is also currently trending at #7.
Bobby Lashley’s WWE Title win was a huge moment in his career and it changed the course on the road to WrestleMania. Now it appears Drew McIntyre is going to face the CEO of the Hurt Business, but that won’t keep fans from clamoring for Brock Lesnar’s return.
Fan response also caused Brock Lesnar’s name to trend on social media all night, because they were begging to see Lesnar vs Lashley finally happen. We’ll have to see what’s in the cards for the All Mighty, but last night’s WWE Title win certainly put him on another level.
