Final AEW Rampage Before Double Or Nothing Moved To Late Saturday Night Time Slot

AEW's last show before the upcoming Double or Nothing pay-per-view has been bumped to a very late Saturday night time slot. The go-home episode of "Rampage" will air starting at midnight EST, technically on May 28, and at 11 PM CST.


The show will be followed by a "Countdown to Double or Nothing" special. "Rampage's" usual Friday night time slot that weekend will be occupied by TNT's coverage of the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs, and the late Saturday night start time is also owed to AEW having to contend with the NBA playoffs on TNT.

Double or Nothing will take place on Sunday, May 28, but it isn't the only wrestling event taking place that evening. WWE will also be running its "NXT" Battleground premium live event that same night, starting at 8 PM EST. This past September All Out aired, but earlier that same day the "NXT" Worlds Collide PLE also aired. While the All Out press scrum is most remembered for CM Punk's verbal tirade, AEW CEO Tony Khan also had some choice comments about WWE running a major event on the same day as AEW's.


While Saturday is an irregular day for "Rampage," Saturday nights will soon be home to "AEW Collision." While the show's launch hasn't officially been announced yet, it's expected to be made so this Wednesday. Additionally, it's expected that a host of other announcements will come alongside the announcement of a new, more exclusive media rights deal between AEW and Warner Bros. Discovery. "Collision" is reportedly going to be airing primetime on Saturdays.
