In the thrilling aftermath of his clash with Buddy Matthews on the premiere of "AEW Collision," Andrade El Idolo boldly addressed Matthews and the House of Black: "See you in Canada." El Idolo conveyed this compelling message in a backstage interview shared on Twitter, expressing gratitude to the AEW audience for their enthusiastic support.
El Idolo's Collision Victory, Unexpected Assault
During "Collision," El Idolo emerged victorious against Matthews, proceeding towards the Trios Champion for a post-match handshake. However, an abrupt blackout followed by the sudden appearance of Brody King and Malakai Black in the ring interrupted the gesture.
King's unexpected assault on El Idolo suggests a looming trios feud involving the House of Black and La Facción Ingobernable. But the surprises of the debut episode of "Collision" didn't stop with El Idolo. The show also marked the triumphant return of Miro to the wrestling ring, as he faced off against Tony Nese.
In a match that lasted less than five minutes, Miro, who had not competed since AEW All Out 2022, decisively overpowered Nese. Adding to the lineup of spectacular returns was the ever-provocative CM Punk. Punk had been absent from AEW action since All Out, largely due to backstage incidents following the event and a significant injury sustained during his match with Jon Moxley.
In the climactic main event of the evening, Punk joined forces with AEW Tag Team Champions FTR, battling the formidable trio of "Switchblade" Jay White, Juice Robinson, and Samoa Joe. Demonstrating his continued prowess, Punk used the GTS on Robinson, securing a win for himself and his tag team partners, FTR.
Undoubtedly, the series of returns and intense match-ups on the debut episode of "Collision" have set the stage for intriguing narratives and captivating rivalries. The next stop being Canada, fans eagerly anticipate the showdown between El Idolo and the House of Black, making the wait for the upcoming AEW events all the more suspenseful.
