Tonight’s episode of AEW Collision hails from the Maverik Center in Salt Lake City. The show features AEW Tag Team Champions FTR defending their titles against Ricky Starks and Big Bill and Adam Copeland will respond to Christian Cage after the hug gone wrong on Dynamite this week.
The full AEW Collision card is as follows:
- AEW Tag Team Championship: FTR (c) vs. Ricky Starks and Big Bill
- Toni Storm vs. Kiera Hogan
- ROH World Championship: Eddie Kingston (c) vs. Komander
- Adam Copeland responds to Christian Cage
- Bryan Danielson vs. Aussie Open’s Kyle Fletcher
After Copeland’s shocking debut in AEW at WrestleDream that saw him turn on his best friend since childhood, Copeland attempted to smooth things over on Dynamite by extending an olive branch and asking him to be his tag partner again. The two hugged in the center of the ring but Cage promptly told Copeland to go f—k himself. Nick Wayne and Luchasaurus furthered the assault on Copeland by beating him down in the ring.
After the two-time AEW Women’s World Champion Toni Storm lost her title she entered a spiral and lost herself which saw her clashing with The Outcasts. Now, Storm has a new sense of self, one that is “Timeless”. Storm defeated Skye Blue on this week’s episode of Dynamite and now she’s set to go head to head with Kiera Hogan who has really shown out in Ring of Honor — most notably the Chicago street fight with Athena for the ROH Women’s Championship. On Collision Hogan is 0-2, but will that change with a big win over Storm tonight?
FTR have become one of the most successful tag team champions in AEW to date, and they aim to continue their win streak tonight on Collision. On last week’s episode, Starks got the pin over one half of the tag team champions, Dax Harwood, for his respective team. Both FTR and Starks are riding the momentum of their big wins at WrestleDream — FTR over Aussie Open and Starks over Wheeler Yuta — but will FTR be put to a halt when they come face to face with Big Bill?
Elsewhere, ahead of Danielson’s big number one contender’s match against Swerve Strickland on Title Tuesday, Danielson hopes to continue his win streak after successfully beating Zack Sabre Jr. at WrestleDream. Danielson will face one half of Aussie Open, Kyle Fletcher, who was a stand out in singles competition in Ring of Honor where he is 4-0. As for AEW, he’s still only 2-1. Will Danielson continue to prove why he’s one of the best wrestlers in the world or will Fletcher pull out a sneak win, especially with Danielson being taken to the limit just one week ago live on pay-per-view?
AEW Collision airs at a special start time of 7 p.m. EST on TNT.
