ALL ELITE WRESTLING: Tony Khan declares Rampage victory over Smackdown

Posted on 10/20/121 by Colin Vassallo

AEW President Tony Khan has declared Rampage victory over
Smackdown this past Friday. Both Rampage and Smackdown
overlapped for 30 minutes on Friday, with the Supersized
Smackdown running half an hour longer than usual, cutting
into the first 30 minutes of Rampage.

Replying to a tweet which covered Fridays numbers, Khan
said that he was going to give a story nobody leaked over
the weekend.

AEW got a big victory over WWE after WWE aggressively
extended their Friday show 30 minutes & loaded it up head-
to-head 10-10:30pm vs #AEWRampage, with AEW Rampage winning
328k to 285k ( 15% margin), Khan said.

Khan was referring to the 18-49 demo rating, not the overall
number of viewers, which Smackdown led with 866,000 to
Rampages 578,000. Both shows did 0.24 in the 18-49 demo but
Smackdown was placed #3 in the chart and Rampage was #4.

The final 30 minutes of Smackdown featured Becky Lynch vs
Bianca Belair and even Brock Lesnar while Rampage kicked
things off with a CM Punk match and followed by a womens
match featuring Ruby Soho and The Bunny.
