After other sports caused some confusion, it’s now confirmed that AEW Collision won’t need to change timeslots this weekend.
At key points in the season for other sports, it can be assumed that the wrestling schedule may need to be flexible to accommodate those fixtures. Whilst this is easier with pre-taped shows, it’s a bit more difficult to adjust when you’re running a live event, which is exactly what the plan was for Collision this coming weekend.
This happened last week as well, with the show going head to head with WWE Fastlane, and managed to get slightly improved figures compared to the previous week despite the challenge.
Tony Khan Confirms AEW Collision Timeslot
In a post on ‘X’, AEW head honcho Tony Khan has confirmed that the Major League Baseball results mean that Collision will no longer have a risk to its timeslot.
Per tonight’s MLB results, it’s now official that this weekend’s Saturday Night #AEWCollision is in our regularly scheduled timeslot 8pm ET/7pm CT this Saturday on @TNTdrama

With no competition from WWE this week, it can be expected that Collision will be hoping to once again improve on its ratings. Whilst last week’s edition featured the in-ring debut of Adam Copeland in a successful outing against Luchasaurus, this week will see Christian Cage put the TNT Championship on the line against Bryan Danielson after he defeated Swerve Strickland in a number one contendership match during the Title Tuesday edition of Dynamite.
