What are 'fast nationals' ?
Basically the early ratings numbers. They come out on Saturday around 4 pm. Previously, only the shows on network channels (Fox, ABC, NBC, etc) would be reported. They aren't accurate and are only early estimates. The actual ratings come out on Monday and are usually around 8% higher.

Basically, WWE gets access to the fast nationals data because SmackDown is on Fox. They see the lower estimates for Rampage and leak it out before the final numbers come out on Monday. WWE basically wants SmackDown's number out there the same day as Rampage so fans spend the time comparing the two. That isn't to say Rampage's number shouldn't be better and that aren't making mistakes, but it is also proof that Vince see a chance to fuck with the competition.

Remember the Mance Warner to AEW rumours quite a while back? Apparently the Southern Psycho will be a free agent in February when his MLW deal is up and is teasing something with his old rival MJF. Weirdly, he's not working for MLW but still seems to be under contract. It's like a Pillman thing.

Not sure if he'd be a perfect fit for AEW, but the guy can work a mic and is entertaining as fuck. It's his ring work where there might be question mark, he's very much a brawler. I feel like he and Archer could do something as a crazy tag team, and could see him getting over like Kingston has.
