Report: Further Update On AEW's Plans For Rampage
Reported update on the future of AEW Rampage
With news gathering pace that All Elite Wrestling are set to increase their television output with the debut of AEW Collision in June, questions have been asked about what this could mean for AEW Rampage on Fridays.
Firmly presented as AEW’s b-show compared to Dynamite, Rampage has been the subject of frequent schedule changes, with the incoming Collision set to push the Friday night show even further down the pecking order. A new report from Fightful Select has shed a little light on what shape Rampage could take, with the report suggesting that sources described Rampage as becoming akin to what WWF Sunday Night Heat was in the late 90s/early 2000s.
Heat - and similarly WWE Velocity - primarily featured undercard and lower mid-card talents, and was also used as a lead-in to PPV events. Recent reports had suggested that Rampage could become a sort-of replacement for AEW Dark and Dark: Elevation, with both YouTube shows recently concluded by AEW.
Rampage is currently recorded after live episodes of AEW Dynamite, with the occasional live Rampage event taking place alongside Battle of the Belts tapings.
