A new AEW Collision graphic has revealed that a star is set to make his return after almost a year away from the ring.
Following the official announcement of the new Saturday show at Wednesday’s (May 17) Warner Bros Discovery upfront presentation, several graphics have been shared for the event.
A new graphic has indicated that among others, Scorpio Sky will be featured on the brand.
Sky hasn’t wrestled since dropping the TNT Championship to Wardlow in a street-fight on the July 6, 2022 edition of Dynamite.
It was reported in March that Sky hadn’t been at any AEW shows in months, following reports that he had been cleared to return to action following a leg injury.
During the official announcement, five stars were touted as ‘headliners’ including Andrade El Idolo, who has also been out of action due to injury.
Andrade has been out with a torn pectoral muscle injury, but has recently teased his return.
An update has also emerged on CM Punk following his absence from the announcement, which you can read more about right here.
Here’s the full AEW Collision announcement from AEW:
