AEW Rampage History
AEW was announced in January 2019 and began its weekly programming in October that year by the name of Dynamite. It airs on Wednesday Nights. The next year, AEW and WarnerMedia signed a $175 Million contract extension for its programming and thus, the promotion decided to increase its content library. With the new deal, it was announced that the company would soon introduce a new weekly show.
While AEW had Dark and Dark Elevation, both these shows aired on YouTube only. AEW revealed their second weekly television show in May 2021 by the name of Rampage and that it will air on Friday Nights.
The first episode aired on August 13 that year and since then has premiered every Friday on TNT. Earlier, both Dynamite and Rampage were supposed to be shifted to TBS in 2022 but only Dynamite was switched to the sister brand. Also, the show has sometimes moved to Thursday or Saturday Nights due to schedule conflicts.
Rampage first started off as the programming second to Dynamite. In 2023, AEW closed down Dark and Dark Elevation and introduced a new programming - AEW Collision. It airs every Saturday on TNT. With the removal of Dark and Dark Elevation, AEW had considerably less spots for its younger talent to wrestle. Thus, the role was given to Rampage which has, since then, been used as a developmental brand for AEW.
AEW Dynamite and AEW Collision air live on TBS and TNT on Wednesday and Saturday Nights respectively. However, the same is not the case with Rampage as it airs every Friday but not live. It is usually pre-taped, either alongside Collision or mostly alongside Dynamite. Thus, the fans who buy the tickets for these events also get to watch Collision live before the other fans watch it on Friday.
While the timings of Rampage do not allow it to go head-to-head with SmackDown, it has occurred once. On October 15, 2021, SmackDown aired for 150 minutes, half an hour more than its usual timings. The show was dubbed Supersized SmackDown and was set to take on Rampage for the latter's first thirty minutes. However, due to MLB Playoffs on Fox Sports, SmackDown aired on FS1, which resulted in a huge loss of viewership. SmackDown could grab only 285,000 viewers between Age 18 to 49 in comparison to Rampage's 328,000.
