One AEW star thinks Collision needs time but has “full faith and trust” in Tony Khan.
Saturday night has been alright for fighting in AEW since Collision debuted on the 17th of June 2023. The show has been the home of CM Punk since his long-awaited return to the company but given its positioning on the schedule, the TV ratings for Collision have been somewhat up and down.
Faithful Colliders, however, have been treated to the finals of the Owen Hart Foundation Tournament as well as more recently a tag team showdown between FTR and the incredibly popular duo of MJF and Adam Cole over the AEW Tag Team Championship.
What did AEW’s Britt Baker have to say about Collision?
Speaking to TV Insider former AEW Women’s World Champion Britt Baker had her say on Collision and thinks the show will take time to figure out its own formula but she has nothing but faith in Tony Khan to make it work:
“I think it’s a work in progress. It’s going to take time to see what the best equation is here. I think there is no better person to handle that than Tony Khan. I put full faith and trust in him. He has done such a good job navigating the waters of a brand-new company in just a few short years.
“I think it’s exciting we have so many shows because we do have a huge roster and such a hugely talented roster, which is a blessing and a curse because you want to showcase everyone. The more the merrier as far as TV time. We just need to find the best way to tell these stories.”
The next edition of Collision will have a familiar feel on the 5th of August with CM Punk and FTR all in action. FTR will put their AEW Tag Team Championship on the line against Big Bill and Brian Cage. The TBS Title will be on the line as Kris Statlander meets Mercedes Martinez and CM Punk will have a Real World Title match against the man who beat him – controversially – in the finals of the men’s Owen Hart Foundation Tournament, Ricky Starks.
