AEW Dynamite made its debut in October 2019 and since then has worked hard to provide an alternate product to what fans see in WWE. For the most part, they have succeeded, but there is still a lot of room for improvement. It seems Tony Khan defended AEW Rampage’s low ratings.

AEW has all the momentum in the world right now thanks to the debuts of CM Punk, Bryan Danielson and Adam Cole to their roster, ensuring that the roster is one of the most stacked in all of pro wrestling.

Tony Khan recently revealed that he was over the moon after AEW Rampage beat Friday Night Smackdown in head to head ratings. Despite this, AEW Rampage has been dwindling ratings over the past few weeks, which has been a cause for concern for many fans.

While speaking with Monaco Streaming Film Festival. AEW President Tony Khan addressed AEW Rampage’s dwindling ratings. Khan defended the ratings as he stated that their audience is great relative to the time slot. He added that it took the company a long time to build a solid audience for AEW Dynamite.

“It took us two years for Dynamite to hit #1 of the week, and it only took us two [week] for Rampage to do that. Our second episode has hit that. It’s a challenge Friday nights at 10 o’ clock to get good viewership.

We’ve seen great audience though, relative to the time slot. We’re still being top in the slot, and I really believe with our fan base, they follow us. As long as we promote it and keep delivering great matches, they follow us practically everywhere we go because they really love AEW.”

Tony Khan believes everything is going fine with AEW Rampage, but others don’t feel the same way. With AEW Rampage’s ratings contiuning to plummet every week, we certainly wonder what the company will do to remedy its situation.
