This was a solid show from start to finish. WWE is building up programs for the next couple of months in one night. Newly crowned WWE Champion Big E was on the show to confront Roman Reigns. So was Finn Balor to set up their match at Extreme Rules. Lurking at Crown Jewel is Brock Lesnar for Roman Reigns. Both matches are for the Universal Championship. During the opening segment, we saw the Uso’s take on Balor and Big E in a solid tag team match. WWE also set up a rematch for the Intercontinental Title between Shinsuke Nakamura and Apollo Crews for next week. Again Becky Lynch steals all of Bianca Belair’s thunder for Belair’s homecoming.
AEW Rampage Better Than Expected
Despite what many people think, AEW Rampage on TNT is doing better than people think. Not too much was expected for a show slotted at 10 pm on a Friday. The numbers are actually good. This week the show was viewed by 642,000 people. Rampage did a .28 in the 18-49 demo. That was second on cable for the night per Showbuzzdaily.com. We saw the AEW World Tag Team Titles on the line as the Lucha Brothers took on the Butcher and the Blade. Anna Jay returned to the ring and we saw TNT Champion Miro take on Fuego del Sol. Not only that AEW set up Miro’s next opponent in Sammy Guevara.
This week Rampage will be two hours and will be part of Grand Slam week. As Dynamite and Rampage will take place from Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York City. Expect both shows to draw well in the ratings.
