The organization’s new television series, Collision was introduced, providing fans with another show to anticipate. It will occupy two live hours of airtime every Saturday.
According to PW Insider, many AEW wrestlers were surprised when they heard about CM Punk’s absence from the Collision announcement. Given his expected involvement in the show, this news came as a surprise.

AEW has yet to announce CM Punk’s involvement with their company officially. Nevertheless, it’s widely believed that he will make an appearance during the debut episode of AEW’s Collision in Chicago.
This has created an intriguing twist since CM Punk’s return may result in a roster split. It remains to be seen how AEW will handle this development as they prepare for their upcoming Saturday show.
