AEW Rampage Set To Continue Airing On Fridays After AEW Collision

Pro wrestling fans have been wondering in recent weeks how a new AEW show might impact the rest of the promotion's slate of weekly programming. Well, according to a new report, the answer is not much. AEW's new weekly television show will not impact the promotion's current TV schedule, according to the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, which says that "AEW Rampage" will remain airing on TNT for one hour every Friday night, just as it has since the secondary show was launched back in August 2021.

The promotion's yet-to-be-announced third TV show is expected to air on Saturday nights, with a returning CM Punk as its central star. The backdrop for Punk's return is fitting, as well. It's been reported that Punk, aka Phil Brooks, may make his long-anticipated return to the squared circle in mid-June when the new AEW program launches. Punk has been off AEW television with no real explanation from the company since he was in a reported backstage brawl with Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks following All Out last September.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter also previously reported that AEW's new show, rumored to be titled "AEW Collision," is expected to lead to some sort of roster split within the company. There's been no indication yet from AEW owner Tony Khan about how strict the purported roster split would be, which stars would land on which weekly shows, and how the wrestlers will be divided up once "Collision" reportedly begins airing this summer.
