AEW Collision Debut Location Revealed
After a week of intense speculation, Tony Khan has revealed the location for the first edition of Collision and it looks like it’s good news for fans of CM Punk.
Many expected CM Punk to be a featured part of the announcement of AEW’s new Saturday night show when it was confirmed on May 17th but the star was conspicuous by his absence. Even more so when it emerged that Punk had originally been part of promotional materials only to be pulled at the last minute.
Reports suggested that Punk and AEW were once again “at odds” with the latest setback surrounding the employment conditions of Punk’s friend and former company producer Ace Steel. Steel was the only man fired for his part in the backstage fight at All Out where he is alleged to have bitten Kenny Omega and to have thrown a chair at the head of Nick Jackson.
On the 17th of May edition of Dynamite, Tony Khan announced the location of several Collision shows but stopped short of revealing where the debut episode would take place. Now on Dynamite in Las Vegas, Nevada, Khan revealed the location of the first edition of Collision and it will indeed take place as planned at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois. There was, however, no mention of Punk.
