AEW Has “Marquee Match” Planned For AEW Collision Debut

Major changes are in store for AEW’s television programming, and according to a new report, the company has “major plans” for its new AEW Collision show.

When the company first began under the leadership of company president Tony Khan, Dynamite was broadcast on TNT in the United States. The program has since moved to sister network TBS, leading to the creation of the TBS Women’s Championship held by Jade Cargill. The company added Rampage to its TNT programming in May of 2021.

It was recently reported that the company’s YouTube shows Dark and Dark: Elevation were ending as All Elite Wrestling content would now air exclusively on Warner Bros Discovery channels. That exclusivity, however, does not include Ring of Honor programming.

AEW Is Set To Add AEW Collision To Its Programming

In addition, the promotion is set to add a Saturday program called Collision to its lineup, and it’s expected that the show will debut on June 17th live from the United Center, although this is yet to be confirmed by AEW. It is expected that the show will feature the return of CM Punk in the same venue where he famously made his All Elite Wrestling debut.

According to a recent report from Dave Meltzer, AEW and Warner Bros Discovery are set to announce their new television deal on May 17th at WBD’s Upfront event.

An update from Fightful Select provided insight into the upcoming deal announcement as well as plans for Collision, stating that AEW has “major plans and a marquee match tentatively scheduled for the Collision show” as well as noting that CM Punk has been pushing for a “huge match.” While it’s rumored that Punk could be in line for a feud with real-life rival Chris Jericho after meeting with Jericho last month, Punk reportedly wants to face another big name opponent early in his return.

Punk hasn’t been seen on AEW programming since taking part in the now-infamous brawl with The Elite after the 2022 edition of All Out.
