Smackdown continues to set up the match between Roman Reigns vs Brock Lesnar for a Unified Champion. Roman is doing exceptional work with Paul Heyman. He wants Lesnar to acknowledge him and Heyman states this match would not be a Unified Title Match. Spoiler Alert Lesnar retained the title at Madison Square Garden over the weekend. This is the main event for Wrestlemania and it should be.
In addition, we saw Ricochet take on Sami Zayn for the Intercontinental Championship. Ricochet won the title as WWE is setting up Johnny Knoxville vs Zayn for Mania. This was a solid match. After Vince McMahon was on the Pat McAfee Show, Austin Theory came out to challenge McAfee to a match at Mania. The feud between Charolette and Ronda Rousey is heating up as Rousey made the champion tap out before the show went off the air. Outside of this, it was a normal episode of Smackdown.

AEW Rampage was viewed by 545,000 people and did a .22 in the 18-49 demo which was about 287,000 people. The viewership was up from a week ago. Though this was the second-lowest 18-49 demo since December 31st. AEW continues to get affected by the news of the world. However, outside the NBA which tops the charts on cable, the news dominated. The .22 in the 18-49 was good for 16th on cable and 24th overall according to Showbuzzdaily.com.
Rampage again was live as the Road to Revolution was on. The show opened with a great triple threat match for the TNT Championship as Sammy Guevara took on Darby Allin and Andrade El Idolo. Do yourself a favour and go see it. In addition, Christian Cage took on Ethan Page in the final qualifying match for the Face of the Revolution Ladder Match. Plus Keith Lee and Serena Deeb were in action as Hikaru Shida returned. We also saw the debut of Erik Redbeard as he helped Death Triangle against the House of Black.
The Road to Revolution special did 208,000 viewers and .08 in the 18-49 demo.
