CM Punk was expected to be a part of AEW Collision, the company’s new Saturday show. That being said, he was missing from all advertising, despite the fact that it was widely assumed that he would be on the show. Now, AEW must carry on.

AEW Collision will debut on June 17th, and the first thought was that Chicago will play home for that show. It appears that might not be the plan if CM Punk isn’t attached to the show.

PW Insider noted that AEW is prepared to change up their plans for the Collision premiere if CM Punk isn’t a part of the show. It was not noted where they will go, but AEW has options.

“If the company and CM Punk get everything back on track, that’s still the plan. If not, they will look to have the first episode elsewhere. With only three weeks to fill a venue as of Wednesday, my guess is they would not chance having it in Chicago without Punk, because everyone will expect him to appear and assume the entire situation is some sort of work (which as of this week, it was not) so perhaps Jacksonville, Florida at Daily’s Place could (and this is SPECULATION on my part) make the most sense.”


AEW hasn’t held a show in Daily’s Place for a while, and that venue could be a great host for the Collision debut. If anything, this is just another sign that CM Punk’s unwillingness to play ball is still an issue for AEW.
