SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
Tony Khan has confirmed that the AEW roster won’t officially be split with the addition of the Collision show on Saturday nights.
Khan spoke on the Barstool Wrasslin show and detailed what his strategy will be concerning talent on both AEW Dynamite and Collision.
“I am going to feature certain talent on certain shows, but I haven’t drawn any hard lines or locked us into any kind of split of a roster,” Khan said. “I think people are gonna be featured on certain shows, but I also think that gives us a great opportunity to showcase certain wrestlers on both Dynamite and Collision at certain times and certain stories that can cross the shows. I think the champions of AEW will be the champions on every show, and frankly, every promotion in the world. We’re not shy about the AEW wrestlers going out and taking on the top stars, top competition from other companies.
The roster we have is so strong, I believe we have so many great wrestlers, it’s impossible to showcase them all in three hours of television. Now, it’s a much better opportunity with five hours of television. Across five hours of television, we can really utilize the roster much more frequently and utilize our great wrestlers more than they’ve ever been used before, so I’m very excited.” (h/t Fightful)
AEW Collision will premiere this Saturday June 17 from the United Center in Chicago. The show will feature the return of CM Punk and a main event that pits Samoa Joe & Bullet Club Gold vs. Punk & FTR.
