AEW Collision Results for September 23, 2023


Tonight’s AEW COLLISION was broadcast live from the Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids, MI!

Nigel McGuinness and Kevin Kelly were the broadcast team for tonight’s event.

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

TNT Championship Match!

Luchasaurus (c.) vs. Christian Cage vs. Darby Allin!

“Darby is tough and resilient but if you’re a betting man, you have to bet against Darby in what is essentially a handicap match against Luchasaurus and the cunning Christian Cage,” said Nigel.

Despite not being the champion, Christian Cage made his entrance wearing the championship belt.

“Christian called it a three-way, but Darby is outnumbered,” added Kevin Kelly.

Darby blinded Luchasaurus by throwing powder in his eyes. He followed up with a tope suicida to Christian Cage and then hit Luchasaurus with one! Luchasaurus whipped Darby into the barricades.

Christian propped Darby onto a folding chair in the ring and then stood on Darby’s back with all his weight. Luchasaurus hurled Darby back with a suplex. Christian and Luchasaurus whipped Darby into the metal ring steps!

Darby dodged a spear from Christian Cage and rolled him up for a near fall. Darby tried for a Coffin Drop on Christian Cage, but Luchasaurus pulled Christian out of the ring. Instead, Darby nailed both of them with a Coffin Drop on the outside of the ring!

Christian tried to hit Darby with the TNT title, but Darby moved and countered with a shotgun dropkick. Luchasaurus picked up the title and stared at it.

“This is the first time he’s holding it. I think he likes what he sees,” said Kevin Kelly.

Christian screamed at Luchasaurus to hand him back the belt. Darby knocked Christian into Luchasaurus. Darby hit Luchasaurus with the PK and then the Coffin Drop. Darby went to cover Luchasaurus but the opportunistic Christian Cage yanked Darby off Luchasaurus and then pinned the masked dino-monster himself!

And new TNT Champion…Christian Cage!

Alex Marvez interviewed Don Callis with Takeshita and Sammy Guevara backstage!

Callis: “I put Jericho and Omega on the map, and now they’re namedropping Ibushi! You’ve always been weak, Kenny. And I’m not worried about this match at Wrestledream. I’ve got another family member that beat Kenny and Jericho in the course of two months and his name is Will Ospreay! See you in Seattle and we’re going to finish it once and for all!”

Tony Schiavone interviewed new TNT Champion Christian Cage and Luchasaurus backstage!

Christian: “I would like to dedicate this victory to Nick Wayne’s mom, and his late father. I’m finished with Darby.”

Tony: “Actually, Tony Khan has announced you’ll be facing Darby next Sunday in a two out of three falls match at Wrestledream!”

Kiera charged at Julia Hart, taking the opportunity to defend her friend Willow. Julia Hart stood on Hogan’s hair, trying to rip out one of the braids. Julia Hart suplexed Kiera and then began to ground and pound her.

Julia hit a standing moonsault on Hogan for a near fall. Kiera fired back with a shotgun dropkick. Hogan came in charging, but Julia dodged it and took down Kiera with a drop toehold. Julia Hart applied her submission hold and forced Hogan to tap out! After the match Julia kept the hold on Hogan. Skye Blue ran to the ring. Julia sprayed mist into Blue’s eyes!

Brody King: “This violence won’t end until we get Kris Statlander! Next Sunday put your TBS title on the line at Wrestledream or the body count continues to rise!”

Julia Hart: “But remember, Kris, the House always wins!”

Andrade El Idolo vs. “Switchblade” Jay White (with Bullet Club Gold)!

After distraction from the Bullet Club Gold, Jay White grabbed a side headlock on Andrade El Idolo. They brawled outside the ring with Andrade scoring with a stiff chop.

Ortiz was backstage with a message for former partner Mike Santana!

Ortiz: “You used me, Santana, then you walked away. You had a lot to say on social media and then TV. And then when I confronted you, you walked away. Tough keyboard warrior. You did what you always do. You ran from your problems. Guess what? You’re not going to run much longer.”

Shane Taylor was backstage with words for Keith Lee!

Shane: “The only thing standing in front of my way is you. Before I take everything you have, you step in the ring with the best damn technical wrestler in the world, Lee Moriarty!”

AEW World Tag Team Championship Match!

FTR (c.) –Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood


The Workhorsemen—Anthony Henry & JD Drake!

Before the match began, Aussie Open, wearing suits, came down the ramp and joined the broadcast booth. Aussie Open said they came out to get a closer look at FTR, their opponents at Wrestledream next Sunday on pay-per-view.

Cash and Henry chain wrestled with neither man grabbing the upper hand. JD Drake tagged in, and Dax tagged in for FTR. Drake blasted Dax with chops and then body slammed him. The Workhorsemen utilized quick tags, in and out of the ring, to try to overwhelm Dax.

Dax planted Henry with a brainbuster. Drake smashed Dax with a cannonball senton in the corner. Drake hit a moonsault on Dax for a near fall! Drake jumped off the top ropes, but Cash countered with a powerbomb and then forced Drake to submit with a sharpshooter!

Mark Davis: “Aussie! Aussie! Aussie! Keep those championships tight because in eight days’ time, you’re in for the fight of your lives!”

Kyle Fletcher: “We’ve heard the complaints, we’ve heard, ‘What happened to the Aussie Open that took FTR to the limit?’ We need to win this match next Sunday on October 1st!”

Dax: “If you don’t bring that dog October 1st, don’t even show up! Top guys, out!”

Lexy Nair was backstage with CJ!

CJ: “My husband, Miro, has lost his way. Unfortunately, he’s preoccupied right now.”

Miro interrupted the interview.

Miro: “My temptation is you, but your temptation is the bright lights.”

CJ: “I’ll let you do your thing and take your own path, but please promise me you won’t lay a hand on any of my future clients that I’m going to manage. Can you do that?”

Miro walked away without answering.

Main Event Time!

Texas Death Match!

“American Dragon” Bryan Danielson vs. “Absolute” Ricky Starks!
