AEW Collision update
AEW To Have Harder Than Expected Brand Split
All Elite Wrestling are set to introduce a new Saturday night TV show in Collision later this year, with reports indicating the new show will premiere on June 17 and air on TNT every week from 8 pm until 10 pm ET.
CM Punk is set to be the star of Collision and the new show will lead to a roster split. Initial reports had indicated the split would be "soft", but Andrew Zarian has since reported on Wrestling Observer Live that the split will be harder than expected.
"The plans have been put in place to possibly have a tentative Saturday show to be the 'soft' brand split. When I used that term yesterday on Mat Men, I was told that it's less soft than I'm putting out there. I guess there will be people that are predominantly on the other show, on the Saturday show," Zarian said.
