The total viewership and demo ratings for the latest instalment of Friday night’s AEW Rampage on TNT have been revealed.
As noted by Brandon Thurston of Wrestlenomics, the April 29th episode of AEW Rampage pulled in an average audience of 464,000 viewers. The show also achieved a 0.14 rating in the 18-49 year old demographic.
The demo rating is the lowest in the show’s history when it has aired in it’s regular timeslot. This comes with the caveat that the show was up against both the NBA playoffs and the NFL draft.
That is a decrease on the previous week where an average of 518,000 viewers tuned in. This included a 0.19 rating in the key 18-49-year-old demographic.
The April 29th episode of AEW Rampage opened with a Owen Hart Foundation tournament qualifying match between old rivals Darby Allin and Swerve Strickland. Unsurprisingly, the bout was a highly competitive contest with neither man able to hold an advantage for long. The end of the match came after Ricky Starks rose from the commentary table and began to make his way to the ring, the distraction gave Allin enough time to grab the win.
There were also wins for Jade Cargill & The Baddies and Keith Lee who saw off Colten Gunn. Elsewhere there was a face-to-face confrontation between Hook and Danhausen, but the two rivals were on the receiving end of a sneak attack from Tony Nese, briefly uniting to send the former WWE man packing.
In the main event, Samoa Joe successfully defended his Ring of Honor World TV Championship against Trent Beretta.
