AEW has a lot of hours on television, as AEW Collision added two more live hours of showtime for the company. They had a soft roster split in place, but now that seems to be a thing of the past.

AEW’s mild division of its roster between AEW Dynamite and Collision seems to have ended. During a recent episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer revealed that this soft brand separation is no longer in effect, and wrestlers will now be involved in both shows.

It previously seemed that this mild brand division was implemented to prevent The Elite and CM Punk from appearing together on the same show. The division was maintained for wrestlers who preferred not to work with Punk, while those willing to work with him were placed on Collision. However, since AEW decided to terminate CM Punk’s contract “with cause” last week, the soft roster split has been completely dissolved. Now, in theory, all the stars could appear on either show if necessary.

AEW really only had a roster split because of CM Punk. He doesn’t get along with some members of the roster who stayed on Dynamite, like The Elite, and others. Now, they don’t have to worry about that.


We previously reported that Warner Bros Discovery were also talking about a new direction for Collision with AEW. That happened a short time after CM Punk was fired.
