The episode managed to garner a mere 321,000 viewers, according to the early overnight numbers, with 115,000 of those falling into the crucial 18 to 49 age demographic, translating to a .1 rating.

The Impact of WWE’s Strategic Moves

AEW Rampage’s Historical Performance

To put things into perspective, the 8th September episode of AEW Rampage had drawn 371,000 viewers, with 162,000 of them being in the 18 to 49 demographic.

This was already a slight decrease from their previous episodes. For instance, the episode aired on 1st September had 372,000 viewers, while the one on 25th August attracted 337,000 viewers. The demographic of 18 to 49 for these episodes was 132,000 and 155,000 respectively.

Going further back, the episodes in early August and July consistently pulled in numbers ranging from 304,000 to 434,000 viewers.

These figures indicate that AEW Rampage had a relatively stable viewership, which makes the recent decline even more alarming.
