Tony Khan, the ever-vocal and impassioned president of All Elite Wrestling (AEW), has once again taken to social media to generate buzz for the upcoming Collision event. In a momentous announcement made during Friday night's episode of Rampage, Khan confirmed that fans will be treated to a 'dream match' featuring Bryan Danielson squaring off against Andrade El Idolo.
The high-stakes bout marks their first face-to-face clash since their 2018 confrontations in WWE. The anticipation is palpable, given the history between Danielson and Andrade. The two wrestling luminaries previously locked horns in a pair of singles matches on SmackDown in 2018, with Danielson emerging victorious on both occasions.
This time, however, the setting is different, the stakes are higher, and both athletes are looking to make a statement on a new stage. But that's not all that's in store for Collision, slated to take place in Memphis, Tennessee.
The event will also feature a brutal Memphis Street Fight, pitting Jeff Jarrett against Eddie Kingston. The stakes are considerably high, as a win for Jarrett would grant his tag team partner Jay Lethal a coveted shot at Kingston's ROH World Championship.
Further adding to the electric atmosphere, Action Andretti will seek retribution against Miro, following a debilitating attack orchestrated last week. Also on the card, Big Bill and Ricky Starks will defend their AEW Tag Team Championship against The Blackpool Combat Club’s Claudio Castagnoli and Wheeler Yuta.
