AEW Rampage is the company’s weekly Friday night show and the ratings are not good. Despite the dwindling viewership, AEW is still not looking to change things for Rampage.
Speaking at a media scrum following AEW Full Gear, Tony Khan discussed the rampage’s dominance in his time slot as it was one of Friday night’s premiere shows.
“The numbers we make are still one of the most important shows. I think sometimes people think that the number you do for Dynamite is the exact number you do for the Rampage, but it’s really the apples for the orange comparison.
“It’s often the number one show in its time slot, and it defeats everything we’ve encountered. It’s often one of the top shows, if not the number one show, except for that time slot on Friday night TV. Is impressive.
“They’re really happy with the show. The fans they see are not great if they don’t make a large number of Dynamite. The fact is that it’s in the time slot, it’s really well handled and they’re really happy with it. I’m thrilled because it’s a good franchise. I’m fine with that slot, and whatever the quality is, if it’s a slot where the averages are high we may need to do a higher average, but we’re really good at where we are. I wonder who is leaking them, it’s subjective on their part.
We’ll have to see if the AEW Rampage changes their time. It seems the company will continue to use their extra time at Warner Media as another A show.
