AEW's CM Punk Responds To Sasha Banks' "Clobberin Time" Tweet
"Indeed it was."
AEW Rampage and WWE SmackDown went head-to-head on Friday, October 15 for 30 minutes due to WWE airing a supersized edition of the blue brand.
While SmackDown averaged more viewers than Rampage, AEW defeated WWE in the all-important 18-49 demographic, averaging 328,000 viewers compared to SmackDown's 285,000.
The lead was even bigger for the first quarter-hour and CM Punk vs. Matt Sydal averaged 363,000 viewers compared to just 277,000 for Sasha Banks vs. Becky Lynch on SmackDown, Wrestlenomics noted.
Ahead of SmackDown airing, Sasha Banks used CM Punk's trademark war cry "It's clobberin' time" for a Twitter graphic to promote her match against Lynch.
CM Punk has since responded to the graphic, simply replying with "indeed it was." alongside a GIF of him raising his eyebrows with a bemused expression.
While SmackDown and Rampage won't go head-to-head on October 22, Rampage will air on TNT against Talking Smack on FS1
