AEW Rampage will air on Saturday, April 22, at 10 PM EST instead of its usual Friday slot, according to TNT’s schedule. The change in scheduling is due to the NHL playoffs, which will air on Friday, April 21, starting at 6:30 PM EST and continuing throughout the night.
This is not the first time that Rampage has moved to a Saturday slot, with the last time being on March 25, due to the NCAA men’s basketball tournament. However, the move may still come as a surprise to some fans who have grown accustomed to the show’s regular Friday time slot.
It remains to be seen whether AEW will confirm the one-off move to Saturday. However, it is possible that the change in scheduling could have an impact on the show’s viewership.
While some fans may be disappointed with the change in scheduling, it is important to note that this move is out of AEW’s control. With the NHL playoffs taking over Friday night programming, the decision to move Rampage to Saturday was likely the best course of action.
Fans will have to wait and see how the one-off move to Saturday affects Rampage’s viewership. However, with AEW’s consistently strong performances, it is likely that the show will continue to draw in a large audience, regardless of its time slot.
