Update On AEW Plans For Rampage After Collision Debuts
As AEW plans to launch yet another television show, there is an update on if Rampage will continue as well.
Rampage is the name of AEW’s current “B” show that airs on Friday night on TNT in the United States. It usually airs at 10 p.m. ET on Friday nights, but as is the case this week, there are pre-emptions sometimes due to other TNT programming, which leads to it being moved around.
While AEW Dynamite on Wednesdays will continue to be a major priority for the company, they also plan to introduce a new show called AEW Collision on Saturday nights on TNT. The announcement is likely coming next month with the first episode of Collision scheduled for June 17th in Chicago.
The current plan for Collision is for it to be a two-hour show from 8-10 p.m. on Saturday nights. CM Punk will be considered one of the bigger stars on the brand along FTR while AEW Dynamite will be home to The Elite’s Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks in part because Punk and those guys just don’t get along that well.
As for Rampage’s future, the Wrestling Observer Newsletter has confirmed that “TNT will continue to air Rampage on Friday nights for one hour.”
It was also noted in the Wrestling Observer that due to AEW’s taping schedule, Rampage will likely feature the Dynamite roster if AEW does a hard roster split.
“If the idea is a talent split, with one group working Wednesday and another working Saturday, because Rampage is likely to be taped on Wednesday, that would mean it would have the Wednesday night crew predominately.”
