AEW has a lot of stars on their roster, because Tony Khan inked deals with more people than he has television time for right now. From Miro to CM Punk, it seems that we might see some of those names on Collision.
AEW has a lot of plans in the pipeline, and a new AEW television show, Collision, is coming in June. That being said, AEW is going to switch up how they approach Rampage.
Sean Sapp noted behind Fightful’s paywall, that while AEW is going to present a new show, Collision, their idea of a roster split will not be a hard line. They are going to freshen things up in a different way on that show, because many of those stars have been sidelined.
There isn’t expected to be a hard brand split associated with this show, but we were told that there are plans to have a fresh roster approach with some significant names. There are several AEW talent who have been sidelined and believe they’ll appear on the show, but haven’t outright been told they are.
It was also noted in the report that, “those that we’ve spoken to say that Collision on WBD in primetime is a part of a new cash infusion for AEW and an extension of the partnership the two sides have held. WBD sources have long spoken glowingly about the relationship with All Elite Wrestling, and the deal is planned for an announcement around the time of Warner Upfronts.”
The Warner Bros Discovery upfronts are going down on May 18th. So, we will likely hear a lot more about AEW’s new Saturday show in about a week.
AEW is already selling tickets for their upcoming Saturday television tapings events, advertising that it will be a live broadcast. It seems that Collision will be a live show, and now we know that some fresh faces will be around to hopefully attract a viewership.
