AEW is set to get a new television show, and Saturday nights will now require two hours of time to see Collision. Although AEW Rampage was pretty much destroyed on that day last week, AEW is pushing forward with this exciting new plan. They also have full backing from Warner Bros Discovery.
According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, ROH television tapings will also continue to take place on Saturdays, immediately following Collision. This is fitting, because ROH has historically taped their television on Saturdays. It remains to be seen whether the new arrangement will impact ROH’s weekly show.
AEW Rampage will continue to be filmed on Wednesdays following Dynamite, along with some dark matches. AEW had to nix AEW Dark and AEW Dark: Elevation, because Warner Bros Discovery now has exclusive rights to AEW content with their new deal.
Warner Bros Discovery is expected to make the announcement of AEW Collision official during their upfronts this week. This is an exciting time for AEW fans, especially for those who were looking for more pro wrestling to watch throughout the week.
AEW Collision is also in an interesting spot, because they will compete with WWE pay-per-views from time to time. WWE has migrated to Saturday pay-per-view dates for the past year or so, and now that is the norm. Only time will tell how Tony Khan combats that situation when it comes around.
