Double Or Nothing was a huge night for AEW but another one is on the horizon for the company when Collision debuts in June and CM Punk potentially returns to the company.
CM Punk has not been seen in AEW since the infamous backstage fight that took place after All Out but it looks like he’ll be on his way back after the first edition of AEW’s new Saturday night show was confirmed to be taking place in the United Center in Chicago, Illinois. The same venue that saw Punk’s debut in the company back in 2021.
Speaking at the post-Double Or Nothing media scrum, Tony Khan was asked about what many believe is the impending return of CM Punk, and unsurprisingly, Khan wasn’t going to be drawn on the matter but did tout the importance of the debut of Collision:
“I am not prepared to address that question at this time. I think that’s something a lot of people want to know. As we get closer to the launch of Saturday Night Collision, on June 17, I think more and more things will come into focus about that show. Tickets are on sale for the United Center right now. We’re off to a great start with the initial sales, and I think it’s only going to get stronger.”
“It could be one of the biggest TV shows of the entire year in terms of revenue, I expect, and also one of the most important TV shows of the year for AEW.”
Tony Khan did, however, reveal that he has had talks with WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg but stopped short of revealing what they had discussed.
