Stay tuned as we bring you the latest updates from AEW Collision!
#1. Andrade El Idolo vs. Juice Robinson – Winner: Andrade
Constant distractions by Austin and Colten throughout the match, but entertaining as hell. Anyhow, they were ejected toward the conclusion, and Andrade was eventually able to score the pinfall. Good match!
In a backstage interview, Chris Jericho and Kenny Omega note that while they may not be friends, they share mutual respect and vow to have each other’s backs, tonight against at Gates of Agony, and tomorrow at WrestleDream against the Don Callis Family.
We see another Toni Storm where she is talking to RJ City. It is hard to describe these segments, but they are absolutely brilliant. Man, I love this gal!
#2. The Kingdom vs. Best Friends – Winners: The Kingdom
Matt Taven and Mike Bennett had their suitcases with them at ringside, for god knows what reason. Nevertheless, the finish of this match saw a couple of low-blows that the referee never saw, allowing Bennett to hit a piledriver for the pin. (Nigel McGuinness made a wiener-loser joke on commentary afterwards).
The Kingdom then cut a promo while simultaneously doing a comical skit, as they ask Adam Cole to meet them at Roderick Strong’s house. If Cole choses to get his own foot surgery instead, he’s a bastard. Oh, and stay neck strong Roddy.
Alex Marvez catches up for a backstage interview with Prince Nana, which also includes a cameo from Don Callis too. Bottom line being – what’s up with Callis and Nana being in cahoots now?
#3. Julia Hart vs. Vertvixen – Winner: Julia Hart
After the match, we are made aware of Julia Hart’s winning streak – 20-something wins and not a single loss in 500-some days, both the longest active records. She grabs the mic and calls out Kris Statlander; she wants her tonight. Statlander obliges, and as she enters the ring and gets in Hart’s face, she and Brody King exit. Statlander then says that she is the “beater of the unbeaten.”
There’s a Josh Barnette vignette, and we learn that he will make his AEW debut against Claudio Castagnoli tomorrow night on thr ‘Zero Hour’ pre show.
#4. Chris Jericho & Kenny Omega vs. Gates of Agony –Winners: Alpha & Omega
Following the match, Omega and Jericho send a stern warning to their opponents tomorrow night. Omega hyped up Kota Ibushi and took shots at Ospreay, Takeshita and especially Don Callis, before Jericho also called them out and then shifted his focus to Sammy Guevara. He called Sammy ‘Judas’ and a bastard before closing with, “Jericho and Omega and Ibushi, we’re coming for you Family!” Verbtim.
#5. The Righteous vs. Job Guys – Winners: The Righteous
Following the match, Vincent and Dutch cut a promo on MJF, vowing to become the ROH World Tag Team Champions tomorrow night. They also call Adam Cole a liar, before doing some kind of weird messed up chair shot with a brick on the legs on one of the job guys, Judas Icarus.
ZS JR. & God Ol’ JR join the commentary team for the main event.
#6. Bryan Danielson, Wheeler Yuta, and FTR (Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler) vs. Ricky Starks, Big Bill, & Aussie Open (Kyle Fletcher & Kyle Davis) – Winners:
Brilliant match! Classic Collision multi-man main event. The finish was very weird. I’m not sure, but it may have been botched…
Nonetheless, everything breaks down as all eight men begin brawling after the match. As Bryan Danielson stood alone in the ring, Zack Sabre Jr excused himself from the announce desk and entered the ring for the staredown.
The two men exchanged slaps and GOOZLES, before Danielson tried to get the LeBelle Lock in. ZSJ quickly escaped the ring and that’s how the show went off the air.
Thanks for joining us for Collision tonight! I’ll see you guys next week for Friday Night SmackDown. Slong everybody!
