The premiere episode of AEW Collision is just a matter of hours away.
As you all know by now, CM Punk will be making his return to All Elite Wrestling on tonight’s show. The main event will feature Punk and FTR teaming up to face off against Samoa Joe and Bullet Club Gold (Juice Robinson and Jay White).
According to a report from Fightful Select, Chris Hero is rumored to be coming to AEW. At last word, he was expected to be in Chicago, IL for tonight’s show. As of this writing, there is no word on if he’ll be wrestling or working in a backstage role. One source indicated that the former Ring of Honor, TNA Wrestling, and WWE Superstar will be working for the company on a trial basis.
It should be noted that Hero mentioned in a recent interview that he’s not retired and was waiting for the right opportunity to return.
Just to reiterate – all that is known is that Chris Hero is expected to be backstage at tonight’s show. That doesn’t mean he’ll be appearing on-camera.
