AEW Collision: April 13, 2024 (plus Battle of the Belts X, & Rampage April 12)  Season 1, Ep 42

After getting some weird looks and hot takes from wrestling fandom after airing grievances on Dynamite this week, Collision pivots back towards new business. BOTBX raises the total to four hours of wrestling, including House of Black vs. three flippy boys, Lee Moriarty vs. Shibata, Toni Storm vs. a rising joshi star, and the Don Callis Family on a mission to break BCC members before the next pay-per-view.

AEW Collision: April 6, 2024 (& Rampage April 5)  Season 1, Ep 41

Collision gallantly delays it's Saturday night start time knowing that it's tough to compete with the first night of WrestleMania XL (the varying quality of the WM matches notwithstanding). As a study in contrasts, AEW offers House Of Black vs. an ad-hoc trio, the return of Yuka Sakazaki, Claudio in singles action, and main-event lucha libre. [more inside]

All Elite Wrestling: Dynamite: AEW Revolution 2024  Season 5, Ep 10000

Tonight the wrestling world sends off an Icon, as Sting -- through a history that encompasses almost 40 years in the business, matches across the world, championships in three companies -- has his final match in the same venue where he faced Ric Flair in 1988. With nearly every title being defended, will the greatest match of the night be Sting and Darby defending their tag belts, Samoa Joe defending against the fire and ice of Hangman Page & Swerve Strickland, or the non-title AEW debut of Will By-God Ospreay?

Say "thank you" to Santa if your holiday wishes included: (1) a nail-biter conclusion to the Continental Classic Blue League, (2) the company's four spoooOOOOOooookiest women in a tag match, or (3) a big hoss battle, because this week you got all three.

AEW Collision: December 9, 2023 (& Rampage, December 8)  Season 1, Ep 26

Some tournament hopes are dashed, because the Continental Classic is a points-based tournament... and the numbers don't lie. Also, Kenny Omega in singles action, Pirate Bryan Danielson wrestles twice this week, and some smark favorites (Abadon! Danhausen! Orange Cassidy!) show up to play. Rampage and Collision were both pre-taped in Canada last week, so if the crowd seemed extra behind certain talent, now you know why. [more inside]

In fact, Collision has three CC matches, plus more enticements leading to the end-of-year PPVs. (This post going up late because I traveling until late Monday.) [more inside]

And so it has come to pass: Sightly more than two years after CM Punk became All Elite, Tony Khan announced his immediate termination, with cause, for starting a backstage fight with Jack Perry at ALL IN last week. Inexcusably, inarguably, in full view of security cameras, other talent, and Papa Tony himself. Expect crowd reactions like no other in Chicago for Collision tonight and All Out tomorrow!

Special Event: All Elite Wrestling presents ALL IN (2023)

Five years ago, Cody Rhodes made a bet with Dave Meltzer that an indie wrestling show could sell 10,000 tickets, and then he and the Young Bucks and Kenny Omega changed the business. This year, All Elite Wrestling shipped 81,000 tickets for a single night at Wembley Stadium, breaking the paid attendance world record for a pro-wrestling event to stage "The Biggest Event in Wrestling History".
