As expected based on reported fast nationals, this was the least-viewed Rampage in the 9 episodes of the show’s history, in both total viewership and the demo.— Brandon Thurston (@BrandonThurston) October 11, 2021
This was only the least-viewed Smackdown in total viewers since Sep 24, but in the demo, it's the lowest since May 14.
