On the eve of Double or Nothing, the stage for a thrilling face-off between Chris Jericho and Adam Cole has been officially set, as announced during last Friday's AEW Rampage. According to a recent report by Wrestlenomics, the broadcast witnessed a minor surge in total viewership, rising from 293,000 to 284,000.
Also noteworthy is the increase in P18-49 ratings, which rose from 0.07 to 0.09. This translates to a three percent growth in the overall audience from the previous week and an impressive 28 percent increase in the crucial P18-49 demographic.
A slight spike in viewership for Rampage was also evident from its original cable ranking. Last Friday's episode climbed to the 24th, a leap from the 46th spot achieved during the previous week's Saturday episode. This upward trend is also mirrored in the primetime broadcast television sphere, with Rampage rising to the 38th rank, as reported by ShowbuzzDaily.
High-Octane Victories Ramp Up Rampage
The electrifying atmosphere in the ring was further charged by events such as the Blackpool Combat Club securing a win against Best Friends and Bandido and Jade Cargill retaining her TBS Championship in a swift 36-second match against Danni Bee.
The team-up of The Acclaimed "Daddy Ass" Billy Gunn also saw them defeat the Varsity Athletes.
With Double or Nothing looming, Rampage and Dynamite are gearing up for back-to-back shows this Wednesday night. Tony Khan, AEW president, anticipates another surge in viewership for these crucial episodes.
In preparation, a high-octane lineup is scheduled for Dynamite, with AEW International Champion Orange Cassidy set to defend his title against Kyle Fletcher, the New Japan Pro-Wrestling star. Additionally, the wrestling community is keenly waiting for a response from The Hardys and Brother Zay following a vicious onslaught by Ethan Page and The Gunns.
The clash between these factions is due this Sunday. As the wrestling world anticipates another engaging week, it remains to be seen how these events will unfold, potentially reshaping the dynamics in the AEW.
