Welcome back to another edition of the weekend wrestling ratings with WWE Smackdown and AEW Rampage. Both shows were back to their normal times with Smackdown being live and Rampage being taped.
WWE Smackdown was viewed by 2,226,000 million people and did a .57 in the 18-49 demo. The number is down slightly from a week ago. But barely. The demo was the same from the prior as Smackdown was number one in the P18-49 demo on Friday amongst broadcast primetime and cable originals.

Smackdown continues to set up the match between Roman Reigns vs Brock Lesnar for a Unified Champion. Brock Lesnar opened the show going on a warpath after reviewing the incident that took place at Madison Square Garden over a week ago now. Paul Heyman arrived saying that Roman Reigns was not in the building and the look he gave to the audience when Lesnar told him he was coming after him was priceless.
In addition, there were two matches only advertised for Smackdown this week. The show was marred by the fact that Big E had to be stretched back and taken to the hospital after Ridge Holland delivered an overhead suplex. Big E noted after he suffered a broken neck that did not need surgery and there was no damage to his spinal cord. Also, Pete Dunne debuted on the main roster as Butch. We also saw Pat McAfee get physical with Austin Theory, Ricochet retain the Intercontinental title, Ronda Rousey and Charolette square off in a great promo segment.

AEW Rampage was viewed by 526,000 people and did a .22 in the 18-49 demo. The viewership was down from a week ago. Just like the previous week, the demo did not change. AEW continues to get affected by the news of the world. But not only did AEW Rampage have to deal with the NBA, but college basketball as well as it was tournament week. The .22 in the 18-49 was good for 23rd on cable according to Showbuzzdaily.com.
The post Revolution edition of Rampage saw Darby Allin take on Marq Quen. An excellent opener that saw the Hardyz show up after AFO was going to try to beatdown Sting and Darby post-match. We also got Jamie Hayter taking on Mercedes Martinez as Thunder Rosa and Britt Baker will battle on Dynamite for the Women’s title. Plus we saw Keith Lee in action and a good main event between Swerve Strickland and Tony Neese.
Don’t forget AEW Rampage will be on later the next couple of weeks because of NCAA basketball.
