Hello, wrestling fans it’s Monday and you know what that means. It is time to dive into your favourite topic that is the wrestling ratings. This week Smackdown returned to FOX, while AEW was taped on TNT. And after last week, where we saw AEW and WWE tie in the demo, you know that was not happening again. Time to look at the numbers as the kids say.
Smackdown Rules on Network TV
This week’s edition of Smackdown returned to network television as there was no baseball to contend with. That will not be the case the following week. But staying on this week’s numbers, Smackdown was viewed by 2.249 million people. And in the coveted 18 to 49 demo the show did .58 which is about 759,000 viewers. This number was better than the previous week when they tied with AEW in the demo. But both shows were on cable TV. The show ranked number one on network TV in the demo, but overall the show ranked 4th behind the ALCS on FS1 and two NBA games on ESPN. This is according to Showbuzzdaily.com.
WWE Smackdown last week Friday on Fox was watched by 2,249,000 viewers on average. 759,000 viewers were aged 18 to 49 (0.58 rating).

Smackdown was coming off the Crown Jewel PPV as we saw Brock Lesnar beat up Roman Reigns. Though Adam Pearce suspended Lesnar, Brock made sure to let Pearce know who rules the ring. We had the coronation of King Xavier Woods and of course the “Title Exchange” between Becky Lynch and Charolette Flair that got heated inside and out of the ring.
Rampage Remains Constant
This week’s edition of AEW Rampage was viewed by 533,000 people and did. 22 in the 18 to 49 demo. It was ninth on the night on cable. And if you include everything network and cable television it was 16th on the night in the demo. On Rampage, we saw the announcement of the TBS Women’s Championship bracket, PAC vs Andrade 2, along with the beginning of the AEW World Title Eliminator with Orange Cassidy vs Powerhouse Hobbs. AEW’s audience always gets hurt from other things going on like baseball and college football.
