It has been over four years since AEW’s inception and the company continues to grow and expand in numerous ways. With AEW set to debut their new show called Collision in less than a month, it appears that Tony Khan has confirmed that the company is being paid for the show.

AEW will hold the debut episode of Collision at the United Center in Chicago. While there has been no official announcement that CM Punk will be present during the show, all signs point toward him returning during the debut episode.

Tony Khan had previously confirmed that AEW Collision is an addition to the company’s current deal with Warner Brothers Discovery. There are quite a few fans who are eager to see how the show will turn out.

While speaking during the post-AEW Double or Nothing media scrum, AEW President Tony Khan confirmed that the company will be getting paid more money for the upcoming AEW Collision show.


“Yes, we’re definitely being paid for Collision and being paid very well. Yes, in addition to Dynamite and Rampage. We got a new contract. It’s more money, but it’s the same length of time. I was very excited about it. It was a great opportunity for us. It’s certainly very expensive to produce a two-hour live TV show, and on the weekend, doing it every week, it’s not going to be cheap, but it’s going to be great.

It was a great opportunity for the company to get more revenue to do more TV, but also grow another brand in addition to what we do with Dynamite and Rampage. It will be added production costs, and now we’re not producing Dark and Elevation, so there is some cost saving there. There will be increased costs, but it will also definitely increase revenue through, not only the ticket sales and the merch sales, but through license fees that we’re making because of an incremental change, increasing our compensation for Collision.”

Quite a few top talent will be part of AEW Collision, including the likes of FTR, Thunder Rosa, Andrade El Idolo and more. Only time will tell whether AEW Collision’s debut will end up becoming a success.

What’s your view on AEW Collision bringing in more money for the company? Do you think the show will become a sellout? Sound off in the comments!
