Warner Bros. Discovery and AEW today announced a new weekly two-hour television show.
AEW Collision will air every Saturday at 8.00pm on TNT in the United States.
Starting on Saturday 17th June, Collision will feature headliners including Miro, Samoa Joe, Thunder Rosa, Powerhouse Hobbs, and Andrade El Idolo.
“We’re doubling-down on wrestling with ‘AEW: Collision,’ which gives fans two more hours every week,” said Jason Sarlanis, President, Turner Networks.
“AEW’s roster of talent has expanded so quickly that we felt it needed another night to bring our audience the epic rivalries, unforgettable matches and stars they love to watch.
“Adding ‘Collision’ to our programming mix on TNT will allow us to satisfy the massive demand we’ve felt from our hardcore fanbase and be the ultimate complement to ‘AEW: Dynamite’ on TBS.”
The new programme is rumoured to take place at the United Center in Chicago where CM Punk will make his return to the company following the fall out at the All Out pay-per-view event on 4th September 2022.
“With the addition of ‘AEW: Collision’ on TNT, I’m extremely proud that a Turner network will be the home of Saturday night wrestling for the first time in more than two decades,” said Tony Khan, CEO, GM and Head of Creative of AEW.
“The debut of ‘Collision’ is significant across numerous sectors including television, wrestling, entertainment and sports, and reinforces AEW as the bold property we envisioned when we launched in 2019.
‘Collision’ will deliver live every Saturday night more of what fans and viewers tell us they want – athleticism, big personalities, exciting storylines and hard-hitting wrestling action, all of which have become synonymous with AEW.”
Tonight’s episode of AEW Dynamite will feature a follow-up to today’s announcement, as promised by Tony Khan last week.
There has been no announcement about the availability of Collision in the UK as of writing this.
