Earlier this year my team over at Business Blurb predicted that Fousey was poised to have “YouTube’s greatest comeback ever” and we were on to something.
Back in 2020, Yousef Erakat attempted to host a free concert on July 15th and it all fell apart after an alleged bomb threat was called into the Greek Theatre. The event was forced to be cancelled and thousands of fans left the stadium disappointed as there was an abundance of “hype” surrounding the event which was called “Hate Dies, Love Arrives.”
Fousey is onto bigger and better things in 2021 including a new channel, subscription platform, a book as well as a handful of other projects.
He left his “FouseyTube” channel at the beginning of this year which over the past 10 years reeled in over 10 million subscribers. In doing so he created a brand new channel titled “Fousey” which has already gained over 200,000 loyal fans and earned spots on YouTube’s notorious trending page.
Erakat also launched his book earlier this year entitled “Warning: This is Not a Motivational Story.” The book is currently available for pre-order on Amazon and instantly became a #1 Best Seller amongst Artist & Architect Biographies prior to publication. The book is scheduled to be officially released on September 28, 2021 in stores and online.
In addition to his forthcoming book and new channel, Fousey also launched a subscription platform titled the RE-UP Crew. Fousey partnered with Subify to create the ultimate fan experience with exclusive content, monthly giveaways, surprise facetimes and so much more.
So, will all this going on what else does he do with his spare time? Fousey recently scored the highly visible role of ring announcer at the Social Gloves: Battle of the Platforms alongside DramaAlert’s host, KeemStar and boxing MC Michael Buffer.
If this doesn’t sound like YouTube’s greatest comeback ever, I’m not sure what is.
