The July 22nd episode of AEW Collision saw Ricky Starks and Christian Cage team up in the main event to take on the team of CM Punk and Darby Allin.

Earlier in the night, Starks bragged about winning the Owen Hart Foundation Tournament in controversial fashion as he grabbed the ropes to defeat CM Punk the previous week. Punk confronted Starks, saying that he wasn’t angry about the circumstances of his loss; in fact, he was proud of Starks for resorting to drastic measures. Christian, Luchasaurus, and Darby Allin also joined in on the promo train, setting up the tag team main event. Once again, Starks used the ropes for leverage as he pinned Allin to secure the win for his team.
