Hello everyone welcome back to another edition of the Friday Night Wrestling ratings here on a Monday. This week we will break down the ratings for the October 29th editions of WWE Smackdown and AEW Rampage. Unlike two weeks ago these shows did not go head to head, however, WWE did run a replay of Smackdown during Rampage. Time to go to the ratings.
The last time Smackdown was on FS1 two weeks ago, the show did under a million viewers. Many expected the same thing to happen this time. But it did not. WWE Smackdown was viewed by 1,023,000 million people. That is a solid number considering there was competition from Game 3 of the World Series and NBA games as well. The show did a .29 in the 18-49 demo which is about 373,000 people. All in all, this is a win for Smackdown moving to FS1 for this week.

1,032,000 total viewers

It was a decent show too that did not feature Roman Reigns at all. Paul Heyman cut a killer promo again making you wonder who’s side is he really on. Brock Lesnar or Roman Reigns. Charlotte cut a promo as well. And from there it was a normal show.
AEW Rampage for October 29th was up from the previous two weeks. The show was viewed by 623,000 people and did a .25 in the 18-49 demo. According to Showbuzzdaily.com Smackdown and AEW Rampage were number three and four on cable for the night. AEW Rampage saw Bryan Danielson and Eddie Kingston square off in a World Title Eliminator match. In addition, Britt Baker took on Abadon and Matt Sydal took on Dante Martin. It was a solid night of wrestling.
