AEW COLLISION was broadcast live from the Budweiser Gardens
in London, ON!

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

Nigel McGuinness, Ian Riccaboni, and Tony Schiavone were the
broadcast team for tonight’s event.

TNT Champion “The Rated R Superstar” Adam Copeland kicked
off Collision!

Copeland: “About a week and a half ago, I finally closed the
book on Christian Cage. Now it’s time to start a new chapter
and I decided to go back to the Cope Open, only this time
the stakes are higher. Because this time I am putting the
TNT Championship on the line. I’m not going to run like the
Patriarch, I am here to fight!”

The Cope Open Returns! TNT Championship Match!
“The Rated R Superstar” Adam Copeland (c.) vs. “The
Deathmatch King” Matt Cardona!

The match opened with a series of hip tosses.

“You can tell they know each other, using the same moves
against each other. Cardona is facing his mentor and getting
a chance to become TNT Champion,” said Schiavone.

Cardona charged at Copeland outside the ring, and Copeland
caught him with a clothesline. Cardona gouged Copeland in
the eyes and then shoved him off the apron and into the
steel ring steps.

Cardona climbed the turnbuckles but Copeland yanked
Cardona’s legs out from under him. Cardona fired back with a
chop. Cardona was searching for a superplex, but Copeland
countered with a bulldog off the top for a near fall!

Matt Cardona spiked Copeland with the Impaler for a two-
count, hitting the champ with his own move!

Cardona went for the Radio Silence, but Copeland countered
with a powerbomb for a near fall! Copeland tried for a
spear, but Cardona stunned Copeland with the Radio Silence
for a two-count! Cardona ran in for the spear but Copeland
lured Cardona in and speared Cardona, scoring the pin and
retaining the championship!

“What an absolutely incredible win on many fronts! Adam
Copeland is still the TNT Champ,” said Schiavone.

As Copeland was celebrating his victory, the arena went
dark! The lights came back on, and Malakai Black appeared in
the center of the ring! Black smirked at Copeland and then
Buddy Matthews blindsided Copeland. Mark Briscoe sprinted
down to the ring to even up the odds, but Black kicked
Briscoe and Matthews nailed Briscoe with a knee! Eddie
Kingston ran to the ring and stood side by side with
Copeland and Briscoe. The lights turned off again and this
time Black and Matthews vanished from the ring.

Tony Schiavone was in the ring to interview AEW World Trios
Champs The Acclaimed and Daddy Ass!

Daddy Ass: “I’m a little pissed off. I’m pissed off at Jay
White. I can get past you hitting me in the head with a
chair, but I can’t get past you coming into my house, where
me and my wife live. He also keeps talking about selling out
Madison Square Garden. Hell, I’ve done that more times than
I can remember. But if I recall, Jay lost that match. And
he’s also going to lose next week. Because next week on
Dynamite, it’s Jay White against Daddy Ass, and then we’ll
see how good you really are.”

Max Caster: “Yo! Listen! This message goes out to Austin and
Colten, those ass boys! Wednesday night, while Billy Gunn is
beating down Jay White, if you guys believe in your boy Jay
White and stay in the back, we’ll stay in the back too. So,
if you have faith in Jay White, you’ll have no problem with

Anthony Bowens: “And now a word from the Scissor King. I
feel a lot better this week even though I shouldn’t. Billy’s
home got invaded and I was proven right. Those three bullet
bitches walked into his home and upon seeing Billy Gun, they
ran like cowards. Next week the demise of Bullet Club Gold
begins. Because they are looking at three different
individuals! By the end of this, you are going to be looking
at ‘Still the AEW World Trios Champions’ because everyone
loves the Acclaimed!”

were backstage!

Copeland: “House of Black, I know my championship makes me a
marked man! You want to get in my business? I’ve got some
backup. Why don’t you face us April 21st at AEW Dynasty!”

Briscoe: “At Dynasty, House of Black, you guys picked the

Daniels: “Now I’ve been AEW since day one but in this
company, it’s not how long you’ve been here, it’s about who

two in our rankings will be facing off against one another
for a future shot at your AEW Women’s World Championship.”

Toni: “And?!”

Renee: “It’s Thunder Rosa and Mariah May.”

Toni: “Was this the plan all along Mariah? Is this what
you’ve been plotting for months?”

Toni kissed Mariah on the lips.

Toni: “You magnificent bastard! Genius! I see myself in you
and I love me! Thunder Rosa, you should have retired as
champion. You will never get to sniff this leather again!”
