AEW brought a big show to Pittsburgh last week, but the action didn’t stop after Dynamite went off the air. AEW presented TBS Title match for Rampage and so much more. The week before they were on at 7:00 PM EST and the viewership took a major hit. Fans should expect to catch Rampage at different times for a bit.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer discussed about the erratic schedule of AEW Rampage. It seems Rampage will be bounced around a lot in the upcoming month because of NBA and NHL playoffs. At the moment it is listed at 6PM Eastern Standard Time and 3PM Pacific Time on TV guides.
Yeah, because of the NBA and NHL playoffs, Rampage is gonna be bounced around a lot. As far as I know, I think it’s always going to air on Friday but that might not even be a 100% but I think it’s gonna air on Friday but it will be different times and we really don’t know the times. I know that the TV guides right now list this Friday it’s gonna be regular time. And then May 6th, it’s listed at 6PM Eastern 3PM Pacific because of playoffs but it could change, that is not necessarily the time, and then every week, really until these playoffs are over. The schedule of Rampage are subject to change based on those games. So Rampage getting bounced around for the next however long you know, in May.
It must be noted that the TV guide lists that time is subject to change according to the playoffs. April 15th saw AEW Rampage pull 482,000 viewers at their special 7:00 PM start time. They also pulled a .22 in the 18 to 49 demographic. It was substantially less that the April 8th episode.
The randomness of the episode airing in the upcoming month will hugely impact on the Rampage viewership. Stay tuned to Ringside News to get latest updates on AEW timings and news.
