With the launch of a new AEW show reportedly just around the corner, there has been a great deal of speculation surrounding its existing programming.
It has widely been reported that AEW Collision will launch on June 17th with the first episode coming live from the United Center in Chicago. It is believed that the show will also see the return of CM Punk and potentially one other major surprise.
With the advent of the new show, many fans have wondered whether this could spell the end of Rampage which already plays second fiddle to Dynamite.
However, according to a new report from Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, this will not be the case.
“What we have confirmed is that TNT will continue to air Rampage on Friday nights for one hour.
If the idea is a talent split, with one group working Wednesday and another working Saturday, because Rampage is likely to be taped on Wednesday, that would mean it would have the Wednesday night crew predominately”
AEW Dark: Elevation Seemingly Scrapped
Although AEW Rampage appears to be safe, Dark: Elevation has seemingly been quietly canceled.
While there has been nothing official from AEW or the company President Tony Khan, Fite TV may have given the game away. The most recent episode of the YouTube series was billed as:
“The Special and final episode of Elevation – it’s Best of Elevation airing on FITE! The episode is throwing it back to some of the best matches that have graced our Monday nights over the years!”
Dark: Elevation was launched back on March 15th, 2021, and the spin-off of Dark became AEW’s third weekly program before the introduction of Rampage that August.
