AEW Collision & Rampage Results for April 27, 2024



CONTAINS SPOILERS


Three straight hours of All Elite action tonight! AEW COLLISION & RAMPAGE were broadcast live from Daily’s Place in Jacksonville, FL!


It’s Saturday night and you know what that means! Saturday night’s alright for fighting!


Tony Schiavone and Nigel McGuinness were the broadcast team for tonight’s event.


The new AEW World Champion Swerve Strickland kicked off AEW Collision with his first live interview since AEW Dynasty!


Prince Nana: “Ladies and gentlemen, the man standing in front of you today is the boss of bosses. He is the anointed one in professional wrestling. The man standing in front of you is one hell of a wrestler. And he’s none other than the AEW World Heavyweight Champion…Swerve Strickland!”


Swerve Strickland: “Man, oh, man, what a week we’ve had here in AEW. We have a new TBS Champion with Willow Nightingale. Adam Copeland got misted in the face by the House of Black. Then we had Bryan Danielson and Will Ospreay tearing the house down. And then Jack Perry returned to AEW and struck Tony Khan, our CEO, our founder of AEW, a man that put all his faith in me. And the EVPs, the AEW World Tag Champions The Young Bucks stuck him in the middle of the ring with a piledriver.


“I’ve done some terrible things in AEW, but something about four elite athletes beating down a non-fighter like Tony Khan sounds like a b-tch move to me. But the most important thing happening this week was Swerve Strickland beating Samoa Joe at Dynasty and becoming your new AEW World Champion! The best in the world is whoever is holding this championship right here. Last week it was Samoa Joe but this week it is Swerve Strickland.


“The night that I won that championship, I went to my oldest daughter, she looked me in the face and told me she was proud of me and said she felt like she didn’t know me. All the missed birthdays, dance recitals, holidays, I can’t make up for lost time, baby girl. But I can set the example and blaze the trail as AEW World Champion and make sure this was all worth it.


“AEW has set people in front of me, and I’ve knocked them all down. I’m in a giving mood this week. I say we have an open challenge tonight! We’re entering a new era in AEW. This is the Dynasty Era. Who’s house!?”


BCC’s Claudio Castagnoli’s music hit, and Claudio walked onto the ramp. Claudio entered the ring and circled Swerve.


Claudio: “You’re on.”


Swerve: “I guess I’ll be seeing you tonight Claudio in who’s house?”


Claudio: “It’s gonna be mine.”


“I’ve just heard from Tony Khan. It is official. The title is on the line tonight!” said Tony Schiavone.


Update on Tony Khan’s Medical Conditional!


Tony Schiavone gave us a medical update on Tony Khan, saying that Tony Khan suffered head and neck injuries after the cowardly attack from the Elite. Tony Khan is not medically cleared to travel and will be running the show next week from a remove location.


Nigel said, “If Tony Khan isn’t traveling, what happens if something goes awry on the road? Who’s going to run things? I would have to think, ironically as it is, maybe the EVPs.”


Tony Schiavone: “Are you out of your mind? Tony Khan will run things remotely until he is clear to get back on the road and hopefully that is very soon.”
