AEW’s weekly television show Rampage is set to air at an earlier time slot for the next two weeks due to NHL playoffs coverage. The program is normally aired on TNT at 10 p.m. ET on Fridays, but will be moving to 5:30 p.m. ET on both April 28th and May 5th.

This is not the first time that AEW has had to move their programming around due to sporting events. Just last week’s episode of Rampage was pushed back to Saturday, April 22nd, due to the NHL playoffs. The March 25th episode was moved to a Saturday because of a soccer game between Granada and the US men’s national team.

For this week’s Rampage, only one match has been announced so far, featuring Keith Lee and Dustin Rhodes as a tag team against an unnamed duo. The two wrestlers have teamed up because of their common enemies in Swerve Strickland and the Mogul Affiliates.

This week’s episode of AEW’s flagship show, Dynamite, will not be affected and will air at its usual time slot of Wednesday, April 26th at 8 p.m. ET. The show will feature two title matches with Jade Cargill defending her TBS Championship against Taya Valkyrie, and Orange Cassidy putting his TNT Championship on the line against Bandido.


AEW CEO Tony Khan will make an appearance on the show. Furthermore, Konosuke Takeshita, who aided The Elite during last week’s episode of “Dynamite,” will team up with Kenny Omega to face The Butcher and The Blade.

It remains to be seen how long Rampage will continue to be affected by sporting events in the future.
