AEW Hits Disappointing Milestone

AEW Rampage set

The ratings are in for the February 17th edition of AEW Rampage and they don’t make pretty reading for the Tony Khan-led promotion.

As reported by Brandon Thurston the show pulled in just 287,000 viewers with a 0.07 rating in the 18-49-year-old demographic. The viewing figure is down 26% from the 375,000 people who tuned in the previous week on February 10th. This makes it the least-viewed Rampage in history.

The demo-rating was also a significant decrease from February 10th, dropping from 0.12. Again, this represented the lowest in the show’s history.

The show moved from its usual time slot and aired at 7 pm EST due to the NBA All-Star Weekend coverage.

AEW Rampage debuted on August 13th, 2021, with the biggest episode to date coming a week later due to the arrival of CM Punk.

AEW Rampage Results – February 17th

The most recent episode of Rampage saw the surprise return of Keith Lee. The star had been out of action since December after being attacked by Swerve Strickland and his new faction later dubbed the Mogul Affiliates. After a vicious beatdown, Strickland hit a huge double stomp onto Lee who had a cinder block placed across his chest.

On Rampage, Lee came to the rescue of Dustin Rhodes who has also become a target of the group in recent weeks.

Also on the show, The Elite defeated AR Fox and Top Flight to retain their World Trios Titles. After the match, the House of Black appeared before disappearing on the ramp, while Ricky Starks defeated Daniel Garcia.

Jade Cargill continued her remarkable undefeated streak with a win over Vertvixen to retain the TBS Title, and Don Callis was seen backstage attempting to strike a deal with Konosuke Takeshita.

It was also revealed that AEW President Tony Khan will make an “important announcement” on the February 22nd edition of Dynamite.
