• Tony Khan Defends AEW Rampage’s Declining Viewership & Ratings

During a media call before the All Out 2022 pay-per-view, AEW President Tony Khan was asked to comment on the continuous decline in AEW Rampage’s viewership & 18-49 demo ratings.

Khan claimed that despite the fall in numbers, Rampage is one of the top two cable TV shows for the last 13 weeks and that Rampage was the top rated show for 9 or 10 of those weeks.

Tony later added that multiple top AEW wrestlers being out of action with injuries hurt Rampage:

“A lot of the biggest stars in AEW have been out. These are all people that have had some of the highest rated and most important matches in the history of Rampage.

I really had to put them on Dynamite every single week. And almost every week — week in, week out — you could count on seeing (Jon) Moxley and (Chris) Jericho and the people who were in AEW on a weekly basis.”
