Tonight’s AEW COLLISION was broadcast live from the Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa, ON!


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


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


“American Dragon” Bryan Danielson vs. Katsuyori Shibata!


Danielson and Shibata chain wrestled at the start of the match. Danielson bridged his way out of wristlock. Shibata tried to keep his distance from Danielson’s kicks. They locked up and traded kicks. Danielson stomped on the back of Shibata’s knees, targeting the hamstrings. Danielson kicked Shibata in the spine.


Shibata rocked Danielson with forearms, but Danielson countered with a butterfly suplex. Danielson put Shibata in a surfboard submission, but Shibata escaped. Danielson and Shibata traded chops until Danielson went low and dropped Shibata with a single leg takedown.


Shibata suplexed Danielson out of the ring and followed up with a running PK from the apron. Danielson rallied back with a running dropkick, but Shibata chased after Danielson and clocked the American Dragon with a running boot in the corner.


Danielson tried for a discus elbow, but Shibata countered and planted Danielson hard with a trip. Shibata and Danielson clinched one another and exchanged knee strikes. Shibata drilled Danielson with a Death Valley Driver for a near fall. 


The fans chanted “This is awesome! This is awesome!”


Danielson rocked Shibata with a running knee strike. Danielson applied the LeBell Lock. Shibata managed to reach the ropes with his boot, forcing the ref to break the hold. Shibata taunted Danielson, inviting Danielson to kick him. Danielson obliged, and then Shibata served up straight pump kicks to Danielson. Shibata blistered Bryan with kicks to the chest. Now Danielson taunted Shibata and invited Shibata to kick him. 


They both sat down and slapped one another with open palm strikes! Danielson caught Shibata in the back of the head with a kick. Shibata dodged Danielson’s charging knee strike and put Danielson in the Iron Octopus. Danielson escaped after putting his boot on the ropes. They grappled until Danielson was able to cradle Shibata and score the pin!


“Take a look at the fans standing up, loving what they see from Danielson and Shibata,” said Schiavone.


“A hell of a match,” replied Nigel. 


After the match, they hugged one another as a sign of mutual respect.


TBS Championship Match!

The House of Black’s Julia Hart (c.) vs. The Infantry’s Trish Adora!


This match took place under “House Rules.” The loser will be banned from ringside during their respective team’s match later tonight. 


Trish knocked down Julia with a shoulder block. Julia escaped a body slam attempt and rammed Adora headfirst into the steel ring steps. Julia whipped Trish into the ringside barricade. Trish retaliated with a shoulder breaker back in the ring.


Julia dodged a pump kick and then blasted Trish with a running lariat. Trish rocked Julia with a German Suplex from her knees for a near fall on Julia. The champ fired back with a thrust kick. Julia nailed Trish with a moonsault and pinned Trish, racking up another win.


Lexy Nair was backstage to interview Harley Cameron and Zak Knight!


Zak: “Angelo Parker wants to fight me? I’ll give you a fight, but I’m not doing it here in Canada. You want to fight? I’ll fight but it’ll be on my terms!”


Daniel Garcia vs. Shane Taylor Promotion’s Lee Moriarty (with Shane Taylor)!


“Daddy Magic” Matt Menard joined the broadcast booth for this match.


Garcia blasted Moriarty with a shotgun dropkick. Shane Taylor distracted Garcia on the arena floor, long enough for Lee to rocket out of the ring with a tope suicida to Garcia. 


Lee Moriarty swung at Garica, but Garica answered with strikes and then stomped Moriarty in the corner. Moriarty cracked Garcia in the back of the head with a jumping kick. Moriarty hit a double foot stomp on Garcia. Moriarty went for the Fang, but Garcia countered and locked in a vicious heel hook, forcing Moriarty to tap out!


“The Bastard” Pac vs. Aaron Solo!


Solo came out of the gates strong, with a flurry of offense on Pac! “The Bastard” stomped on Solo.


The fans chanted “Welcome back!” at Pac.


Pac’s quick feet knocked Solo to the mat. Pac rocked Solo with a shotgun dropkick off the top rope. 


“Seamless offense. No wasted motion,” said Nigel about Pac.


Pac splashed Solo with the Black Arrow! Pac, wanting to make a statement, put Solo in the Brutalizer submission and won via ref stoppage!


Pac: “Tony, Tony, Tony. I told you, the Bastard’s back and I am looking for trouble. But you see, Aaron Solo is not exactly what I had in mind. Tony Khan, I am looking for trouble, so find me some, or I will find it myself.”


Bryan Danielson was backstage meditating. 


Danielson: “I’m grateful that I was about to have a match with Shibata tonight. I’m grateful that I have a match with Will Ospreay coming up at Dynasty on Sunday, April 21st. He said when he gets in the ring it’s live or die and he doesn’t plan on dying. He can’t walk in my shoes. Shibata and I were told we would never be able to wrestle again. But we banged on death’s door. Say what you want about what you’re willing to do. I know what I’m willing to do. And I don’t think you’re ready for that.”


Claudio Castagnoli vs. “The MurderHawk Monster” Lance Archer!


They rammed each other with shoulder blocks, neither man budged. Claudio scoop slammed Archer, but Archer got right up! Claudio and Archer slugged it out, two battling bulls in the ring. Claudio clocked Archer with a lariat, knocking Archer over the top rope. 


Claudio attempted a running European Uppercut on the floor, but Archer blocked it. Archer followed up with a cannonball senton off the apron and onto Claudio! Archer nailed Claudio with a side slam in the ring. 


Archer signaled for a DDT, but Claudio reversed it and stunned Archer with a big vertical suplex. Archer tried to walk the ropes, but Claudio pulled him down and cracked him with a European Uppercut!


Claudio climbed up the turnbuckles, but Archer blasted him with a rising knee strike. Archer choke slammed Claudio for a near fall! Claudio came back with a Death Valley Driver on Archer! Claudio hit a cutter on Archer from the top turnbuckle for a near fall. 


The fans chanted “Swing! Swing! Swing!”


Claudio got Archer in the Giant Swing but The Righteous—Vincent and Dutch—sprinted down the ramp and ambushed Claudio in the ring!


The Righteous attacked Claudio until Bryan Danielson came down to even up the odds for his fellow Blackpool Combat Club teammate! The numbers were too many, and they swarmed Danielson! Shibata sprinted to the ring with a chair, and Archer and The Righteous retreated!


“This match has been thrown out, but what a match it was,” said Tony Schiavone.


“This one is far from over,” replied Nigel.


Lexy Nair was backstage with Ruby Soho and “Cool Hand” Angelo Parker!


Parker: “This is a second home to me, and I was ready for a fight tonight. Zak is a coward. He doesn’t want to have a match. He’ll have a fight tonight!”


Ruby: “If you go looking for a fight, you’ll have to do it without me.”


Parker: “You’re right. I’ll leave it alone for tonight.”


Kyle O’Reilly vs. “Bounty Hunter” Bryan Keith!


Kyle cracked Keith with a forearm. Keith baited Kyle in and connected with a spinning kick. Keith put O’Reilly in an abdominal stretch. Keith transitioned with a DDT, spiking Kyle right on his head and neck!


Kyle put Bryan Keith in a triangle choke. Kyle gave up the submission attempt in search of something else. Keith battled back with a double underhook power bomb, though. Kyle fired back with a lariat, a brain buster, and then the Armageddon submission hold, forcing Bryan Keith to tap out!


The Undisputed Kingdom came out to help Kyle celebrate.


“What a return to action!” said Nigel. 


Lexy Nair was backstage to interview Deonna Purrazzo and Thunder Rosa!


Lexy said Deonna and Thunder Rosa have never teamed before, but they’re scheduled to face Toni Storm and Mariah May next week on Dynamite.


Thunder Rosa: “Toni and Mariah want drama? We are going to give you drama. We are going to stop all the games and all the jokes. We have a mission. It is TV time.”


AEW World Tag Team Title Tournament Wild Card Match!

The Infantry—Carlie Bravo & Captain Shawn Dean

vs.

The House of Black’s Brody King & Buddy Matthews!


The winning team faces FTR in the quarterfinals of the tournament.


The House of Black wasted no time pummeling the Infantry outside the ring, seeking and destroying. 


“This match may not even happen,” said Nigel.


“You’re right, this match hasn’t even started, but the House of Black have decimated their opponents on the floor,” replied Schiavone.


The ref asked the Infantry if they could compete, and the Infantry wouldn’t back down!


Shawn Dean splashed Brody and Buddy in the corner. Brody fired back with a monstrous lariat! The House of Black took turns battering Carlie. They hit Dante’s Inferno on Dean, but Carlie broke up the pin attempt. The House of Black circled the Infantry, stalking them in the ring.


Brody spiked Carlie Bravo on the announcers’ desk! Buddy curb stomped Shawn Dean! Julia Hart whispered into Buddy’s ear, and he smiled. Buddy climbed to the top turnbuckle. The ref had his back turned on Buddy, as he was admonishing Julia Hart on the apron. Mark Briscoe ran down to the ring and whacked Buddy in the head with a steel chair! Brody King followed Briscoe up the arena steps, leaving Buddy in the ring. Shawn Dean crawled over and covered Buddy, scoring the pin!


“I can’t believe it! The Infantry won!” said a shocked Schiavone. 


“The Infantry didn’t win it. Mark Briscoe won it,” replied Nigel.


Malakai Black stormed down to the ring, furiously staring at Mark Briscoe!


Ahead of this Wednesday’s TNT Championship “I Quit” Match against champion Christian Cage, we heard from the “Rated R Superstar” Adam Copeland!


Adam Copeland carried the case with the words “Spike” stenciled on it. 


“I have no idea what is in the box, but it really scared away Christian Cage last time,” said Tony Schiavone. 


Adam Copeland: “This Wednesday, it’s fitting that I fight a guy who I thought for 40 years was my best friend. So Christian Cage, I’m talking to you now. I’m not going to call you Jay. Jay’s dead. You’ve become Christian Cage. The ego is out of control. 


“We used to talk about chasing our dreams and crushing our dreams. We did that! And then I fast forward to now. We had talked about me coming to AEW. You were on board. I came here to retire with you. I didn’t come here to take away your shine. At World’s End, I failed, and I’m not used to repeated failures. I picked myself up and walked forward.


“I earned that title shot. You and the Patriarchy took me out with the con-chair-to, a move we created. So maybe that’s fitting too. But when I was out, I got a call from a man who in the past has had to remind me of who I am. And he called again to remind me of who I am. So, I created Spike.”


Copeland opened the box and pulled out a 2x4 with nails sticking out of it!


Copeland: “Spike is hungry. She wants to take a bit out of you, Christian Cage. So that phone call from Mrs. Foley’s baby boy worked, because I remember who I am! I have kept it bottled up. I am the Rated R Superstar. This Wednesday you’re going to be in the hospital. Spike and I are going to take away your pride and make you say two words. And those two words are ‘I quit!’ 40 years after this started in our hometown, it ends!”
