Tonight it was announced that the “AEW Rampage” show which had been erratic in its timeslot will finally find itself on its new normal day and time.
The Colorado Avalanche won the Western Conference Finals last night, so starting next Friday night, “AEW Rampage” will no longer be interrupted by TNT’s NHL or NBA coverage. Because of this, the show will now air at 10 p.m. EST on Fridays without interruption for the foreseeable future.
Saturday Night’s Main Event, which is a program that airs on TBS, would have an impact on AEW when the Major League Baseball Playoffs begin broadcasting in September. The Divisionals and Championship series of these games could affect the momentum of AEW at this time.
With a new timeslot, the high-rated “Rampage” series will hope to stabilize its Friday night performance, fluctuating in both numbers of viewers and ratings. There has been an uptick in recent weeks on this past Friday’s episode – following weeks of low viewership and ratings.
Last week’s “Rampage” was an eventful show, with the Young Bucks taking on the Lucha Brothers in another spectacular tag match and CM Punk announced he would be taking time off due to a shoulder injury, leading to the announcement of an AEW Interim World Championship, which will be crowned at Forbidden Door. No matches have been scheduled yet for this week’s “Rampage”, which is being filmed in Independence, Missouri.
