Welcome back to another edition of the weekend wrestling ratings with WWE Smackdown and AEW Rampage.
WWE Smackdown was viewed by 2,255,000 million people and did a .64 in the 18-49 demo, which was about 836,00 people. The number is up down from a week ago.

WWE Smackdown was second-best on network TV in the demo and second overall between cable and network in the demo.

Smackdown had more build to the Royal Rumble as Seth Rollins is challenging Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship. It was a great war of words between these two competitors. Rollins challenged the Usos to a match where if they lose, they are barred from ringside during the Championship match. In addition, If Rollins lost, he would lose the title shot. Rollin’s partner was Kevin Owens. So the main event was good.
Outside of this segment, it was a pretty ordinary edition of Smackdown. The Sonya Deville-Naomi stuff is great. Hopefully, there is a match down the road. But with the Rumble around the corner, let’s see what they can do to drive audience interest outside the main event.

AEW Rampage was viewed by 594,000 people and did a .24 in the 18-49 demo, which was about 318,000 people. These numbers are both down from the previous week. This was the best 18-49 demo for a Friday night since October 29th. AEW Rampage had a better 18-49 demo during the Christmas holiday weekend.
This was a solid Rampage for AEW. After appearing on Dynamite Jon Moxley was back on in action before his appearance on GCW. He took on Ethan Page in a great opening match. In addition, we were supposed to see Roppongi Vice take on The Young Bucks, but there was a medical issue so we had Trent Beretta against Nick Jackson. This was highly entertaining. Also, we saw Hook in action plus Jade Cargill defended the TBS Championship.
