AEW Rampage this past Friday night drew 740,000 total viewers, with 396,000 viewers in the 18-49 demographic.
Rampage airs Friday nights at 10 p.m. EST. The show featured Christian Cage defeating Kenny Omega for the IMPACT World Championship and was headlined by Britt Baker vs. Red Velvet for the AEW Women’s World Championship.
Rampage ranked #3 for the night on the Cable Top 150, behind the NFL Pre-season games on the NFL Network.
AEW president and CEO Tony Khan, expressed pride and excitement when describing the first hour of Rampage history.
“This was one of the biggest nights in the history of the company, and it was a great show,” said Khan. “We went in with a tremendous card of three championship matches and a plan to deliver the best one-hour wrestling TV show anyone’s seen in a very long time. We needed to hit a home run, and we did. Everyone across the board, including production and staff, did a tremendous job.”
Next week’s broadcast will be one of the most anticipated AEW television shows in history with an airing from the sold-out United Center in Chicago dubbed “The First Dance.” This is heavily expected to be CM Punk’s AEW debut.
