The Collision era of AEW is officially set to start next Saturday (June 17) at the United Center in Chicago.
The debut episode of the show will feature the return of CM Punk to AEW programming for the first time since last year’s All Out show.
Various other AEW stars have been advertised for Collision, including FTR, the House of Black, Thunder Rosa, Miro and Samoa Joe.
Speaking about Collision on the Extreme Life of Matt Hardy podcast, Matt revealed that the main concern in the AEW locker room regarding the show is the travel schedule.
“We shall see. I think more than anything else, people just kind of want to know what their schedule is. When you have a live show on a Wednesday and a live show on a Saturday, that means the travel is going to take you out Tuesday evening. It’s gonna bring you back Thursday morning, and then Saturday, [it] would take you out Friday evening, work all Saturday, bring you home Sunday morning. So people just want to have an idea of where they’re going to land, I think more than anything else.
“As far as how we’re feeling about that show, honestly, I think people will start determining those feelings once the show starts, I would imagine, and once it starts being produced weekly, I think we’ll probably get a good feel of how the show is gonna be when it’s all said and done.”
Hardy also gave his thoughts on CM Punk making his return to the company on the debut episode of Collision, which you can see here.
Matt Hardy recently teamed with his brother Jeff Hardy and Hook against Ethan Page and the Gunns on the AEW Double or Nothing Buy-In.
By proxy of winning the match, Matt gained possession of Page’s AEW contract.
