The ratings for WWE SmackDown and AEW Rampage from last Friday came out on Monday where it was revealed that SmackDown won the night in total viewership and tied in the key 18 – 49 demo numbers. However, Rampage edged out SmackDown with 328,000 to 285,000 in the 18-49 demo when they went head-to-head from 10 – 10:30 pm EST.
WrestleVotes reported afterward that the numbers were being talked about backstage at Monday’s RAW.
WWE producer Shane Helms took to Twitter last night to dispute the report. You can check out his tweet below:
As someone who was there, I didn’t hear one word spoken about it. Not a single word. 🤷🏻♂️ https://t.co/CeJecqqLSe
