AEW Collision will premiere on June 17 on TNT as a two-hour program. AEW President Tony Khan announced the location of the first episode on Wednesday night’s episode of Dynamite, where it was confirmed to be in Chicago, IL.
On today’s AEW Double Or Nothing 2023 media call, Khan confirmed the addition of Collision was not part of a new deal with Warner Bros. Discovery. Instead, it’s an extension of the current deal between the two sides. He said,
“The scope of the deal, as it is, the length is the same. I don’t want to get too deep into those conversations, but the length of the term is the same and this is an addition to what we had already put together. Everybody was really excited about the success of AEW on TBS and TNT. They reached out to us and gave us a great opportunity. I think it spoke highly of AEW that this show and the idea of more AEW programming goes all the to the top to Mr. (David) Zaslav, who is one of the most powerful and intelligent people in all of media. He likes what we’re doing with AEW on TBS and TNT and it was literally his idea for there to be more AEW on TNT. I’m very grateful for that. We’re going to do our best to make sure Collision is a great show and also maintaining a great show with Rampage and also take Dynamite to new heights. That’s a great challenge for us and we’re really looking forward to it.”
