DID YOU ENJOY AEW COLLISION ON SEPTEMBER 16TH 2023?
Pretty good Collision with some filler.
Tag with Bryan and Starks was pretty great along with Stat vs Britt which had to be my favorite of the night. FTR/Iron Savages was fun along with Bowen and Silver. Andrade and Scorpio went harder than the crowd appreciated.
The Stat TBS run now feels like it has some great momentum now. If they wanted to do for her what the International championship did for OC, if they can keep this up they’ll have it.
The show was good
there was some very glaring production issues. The Keith Lee promo with the dude yelling “Collison take 22!” at the beginning was some bush-league stuff.
Please free my ears from Kevin Kelly
I thought the show overdelivered. The card was generally on the weaker end, but matches were good to great. Promos were great, pretapes were good-to-great, editing error notwithstanding. Really like everything they’re building towards here. Love Shibata’s translate promos, legitimately think it works great for him. Eddie Kingston is Eddie Kingston, dude can talk me into anything.
I swear I’m asking in good faith.
What’s the deal with Cash Wheeler? How’s he getting booked for the next PPV? Shouldn’t he be awaiting trial at this point or were charges dropped or did Tony just drop a small fortune on the judge?
Average show for me, maybe slightly below.
Opener was a fun time, main event was awesome. Statlander is allergic to bad matches. FTR ended up having a pretty good match but I feel like Iron Savages and Workhorsemen should be getting eliminator matches instead of title shots. Expecting a good match with Aussie Open. Idolo and Sky had a good match but the crowd didn’t seem to give a shit. Genuinely surprised to see the Righteous get that win, but I guess they needed to do something of value if they were gonna call out MJF and Adam Cole. I normally like whatever Bowens does but the match with Silver just didn’t do it for me. Eddie Kingston did a great promo, other promos didn’t really make an impression on me aside from the glaring production mistake and cheeky nod to said glaring production mistake.
I won’t belabor the point but this is the worst I’ve ever heard Kevin Kelly; his commentary actively harmed my enjoyment of the program. Hoping they can improve the commentary team, whether that’s bringing someone else in or just like, getting better at it.
Not a bad show, but neither Dynamite nor Collision have been hitting on all cylinders lately.
Gotta give credit where credit is due though, for a 4 year old company they are still light-years ahead of where TNA was and would anyone consider WCW to have been hot anywhere outside of 1996-1998? I know they were mainstays due to the NWA/JCP connection — but for a company that’s been around for such a short amount of time I think it’s ok to give them time to breathe, adjust, and figure themselves out.
Cool to see Aussie Open getting a spot here because they actually suit the vibe of the show.
The main event and opener was cool but the rest of the card was pretty bland. I don’t see what was wrong with a roster split. I was very much enjoying my Collision without the bucks and dark order.
Tonight featured an explicit commentary
Tonight featured an explicit commentary shoutout to Norma Desmond and the film Sunset Blvd from 1950. And it was 1000% on point. As a person with an unused film degree, this sparks joy.
And if you’ve never seen Sunset Blvd., its well worth it, just a fantastic film and among Billy Wilder’s (writer/director) best work (although for my money, Some Like it Hot is still his best).
Britt needed the loss.
She could do with evolving and refreshing herself a bit. On Rampage she was talking about holding both belts, so hoping this loss is the beginning of some character development for her.
Statlander is great, hope she is given the opportunity to add some more personality alongside her excellent matches.
Stokes for Andrade vs Jay White, that’s potentially an incredible match.
Psyched for Bryan vs Starks in a Texas Death Match as well. Two of my favourites right now.
Really good show! Appreciated the large quantity of promos, particularly as they are promoting two big events.
Adding more context to Eddie V’s Claudio and Ibushi vs Konosuke was much appreciated and the right move
This was a pretty good show.
It’s interesting how they’re finally integrating any sort of ROH connection. Shibata’s gimmick of speaking through his phone is a choice, but I guess it probably makes him a bit more memorable for people who don’t watch ROH regularly
superplexed for like
I thought the spot where that guy bear was sitting on the top rope waiting to be superplexed for like 6 min seemed really legit
What a banger of an episode.
Got me even more jazzed for Grand Slam.
John Silver is a great talent. I wish he was featured more.
At the rate AEW hands out title shots I wouldn’t be surprised if Serpentico and Luther are next in line
On the weaker side of collisions.
Not bad but nothing to write home about.
Great promo from Eddie
ROH on this show
Entirely too much ROH on this show.
Starks was beating Danielson
Thought for sure Starks was beating Danielson in their rematch, but the tag match result tonight (plus the timing and stipulation of the rematch) make me think Bryan wins again. Disappointing.
Scorpio losing clean was surprising. I’m not disappointed, but it seemed like they were going to push him hard on Collision. Not sure where this leaves him. Andrade vs Jay White should be a hoot.
The Righteous beating The Hardy’s was also surprising, but very welcome. I don’t see a lot of value in The Righteous, but see even less in a broken down Hardy Boyz tag team in 2023.
What was that Keith Lee ‘take 22’ stuff about?
Don’t tell me they seriously didn’t edit that part promo out…

Here is a more in-depth look at each match:
Blackpool Combat Club vs. Ricky Starks & Big Bill
This match was a dream come true for many fans, as it featured two of the best tag teams in the world. Blackpool Combat Club is a relatively new team, but they have already made a huge impact on AEW. Bryan Danielson and Claudio Castagnoli are both former world champions, and they have a lot of chemistry together. Ricky Starks and Big Bill are another great team. Starks is one of the rising stars in AEW, and Big Bill is a powerful and imposing figure.
The match itself was a back-and-forth affair, with both teams trading blows. Danielson and Castagnoli used their technical skills to try to outwrestle Starks and Big Bill, but Starks and Big Bill used their power and size to their advantage.
