Update On AEW Bringing In More Veterans Backstage


AEW Collision debuted on the 17th of June as CM Punk made his return to the company but it seems there were also some new faces working backstage at the show.

CM Punk made his highly anticipated return to the company following nine months out of action as he opened proceedings by getting a lot of things off his chest. In the night’s main event, the former AEW World Champion teamed with current AEW Tag Team Champions FTR to defeat the trio of Samoa Joe, Juice Robinson, and Jay White.

There were also returns for Andrade El Idolo and Miro who had also not been seen since All Out 2022 with El Idolo competing in a contender for match of the night against Buddy Matthews while The Bulgarian Brute picked up a one-sided win against Tony Nese.

PWInsider has reported that two wrestling veterans were working behind the scenes at the show with Chris Hero producing Ring of Honor bouts that took place before Collision went live. He is not officially part of the company yet but is believed to be there for a few weeks at least.

Former IMPACT Wrestling star Kevin Matthews was also working backstage at Collision, helping with logistics and ensuring talent was where they needed to be for different things throughout the night.
