AEW Collision Announced, Will Air Saturday Nights

The first episode is rumored to be emanating live from the United Center in Chicago on June 17. The show is also rumored to see the return of CM Punk to AEW television for the first time since the reported brawl that took place backstage at the NOW Arena following the 2022 edition of All Out.

This announcement was teased by Tony Khan last week on AEW Dynamite. Last week’s episode saw the returns of both Miro and Thunder Rosa. Khan heavily hinted at a brand extension with Dynamite and Collision having their own dedicated rosters. Speculation of the new show and brand split became even more heated after both AEW Dark and Dark Elevation were discontinued. There have also been rumors of AEW sister promotion ROH tapings taking place following core AEW programming.

The additional weekly content should help build to AEW’s biggest event All In, which is scheduled to take place August 27 at Wembley Stadium.
