AEW Collision: September 9, 2023  Season 1, Ep 13

If tonight's episode of Collision seems a bit heavy on the promos, it's because Tony has AEW Grand Slam in two weeks and is down one Zaslav-approved headliner. Not to worry, he's going to fill the gap with tournament semi-finals, title defenses and a quartet of luchadors! [more inside]

AEW Collision: September 2, 2023  Season 1, Ep 12

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".
