AEW will hold the debut episode of Collision at the United Center in Chicago. It was officially announced that CM Punk will be teaming up with FTR and squaring off against Jay White, Juice Robinson, and Samoa Joe in the main event of the debut episode of AEW Collision on June 17th.
It was previously announced that FITE will air the show in the UK, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand as part of the AEW+ subscription package that currently airs weekly episodes of Dynamite and Rampage.
According to a report by Dave Meltzer, AEW has secured a deal for Collision to air in the UK market on Wednesday nights on ITV 4. The first episode of Collision will air on ITV 4 on Wednesday, June 21st.
”The time slot is not confirmed past that at least some shows will air at 9 PM. AEW didn’t confirm the nature of the time slot past that it would be Wednesday nights.”
With the debut episode set to take place in less than a week, a lot of hype has led to a lot of expectations from the show. It remains to be seen whether AEW Collision will be a huge hit in the end.
