AEW Collision Results: Christian Cage vs. Bryan Danielson, Adam Copeland appears

Originally published at

This week, AEW is taking Collision to the Huntington Center in Toledo, Ohio. Bryan Danielson is slated to challenge Christian Cage for the TNT Championship. Willie Mack will also be on the show as he challenges Samoa Joe in a battle of the big boys.

Where are the opening promos?

The show started right away with the Elton John theme song, with none of the night’s performers cutting promos.

Adam Copeland and 1,000 other people

Adam Copeland opened the show, coming to the ring to address Christian Cage. It was tough to follow the full promo because the FITE feed kept cutting out. 

"I came out here to address everything Christian Cage had to say…." Adam Copeland

Eventually, Cage’s music hit, and he made his way to the ring, flanked by security guards. He sat on the turnbuckle on the opposite side of Copeland, surrounded by security guards. Cage was mad at Copeland for taking up “his” opening segment. He said if Copeland sticks around in AEW, he’ll be like Toledo, Ohio, in that he’ll be known for nothing. 

The TNT Champion Christian Cage has appeared flanked by an entire security team.

While the feed kept cutting in and out, Bryan Danielson eventually came out and said Luchasaurus and Nick Wayne had been banned from ringside for the main event match.

Shortly after, Ricky Starks came out with Big Bill to cut a promo. He said that all the guys in the ring were taking up his time. He said he respects Christian Cage and climbed into the ring behind Cage’s security detail. At one point, Copeland called Starks a vanilla version of The Rock, to which Starks said, “That really sent me over the Edge.” 

FTR’s music hit after Starks made a challenge for a tag team match featuring himself his “friends” against Copeland and Danielson. Cash sounded regretful about their choice to take the match last week with their injuries but added that they’ll earn their rematch.

FTR have arrived and have some words for the #AEW World Tag Team Champions Starks & Big Bill!

Danielson said he wants his match against Christian Cage right now instead of during the main event. A huge brawl then broke out, with the security guards taking the brunt of the damage as the heels retreated. Danielson locked one of the guards in his LeBell Lock until long after he passed out. 

It has all broken down in the ring!

Despite the feed issues, which were resolved when FTR came out, it was a really fun start to the show.

MJF Stand Up to Jewish Hate segment

AEW aired a very well-produced video package showing MJF attending the Stand Up To Jewish Hate conference in Foxborough, MA. The crowd in attendance also seemed to be shown the package, as there was applause at its conclusion.

Samoa Joe vs. Willie Mack

Mack showed no intimidation as he and Samoa Joe locked up. At one point, Willie Mack hit a Plancha to the outside on Joe and bounced into the announcer’s table. He appeared to hurt his shoulder but kept working the rest of the match; it could have just been some good selling. Willie landed a Stunner on Joe but was slow to cover, giving Joe the opening to kick out. Shortly after, Samoa Joe took control and landed a huge Muscle Buster on Mack for the win, getting closer to passing Jay Lethal’s ROH TV Championship record reign.

Willie Mack with a close two count!

Juice Robinson vs. Christopher Daniels

Juice and Christopher Daniels had a good back-and-forth match, but as is typical with Bullet Club Gold matches, there was interference and referee distractions. 

Christopher Daniels making a comeback!

Robinson controlled the action through the first commercial break, but eventually, Daniels made a comeback where he hit a near fall on Juice. It didn’t last long, as Juice countered and hit a Juice is Loose to win the match shortly after.

After the match, Jay White got down on one knee in front of Juice and presented him with a ring, which he used to punch Christopher Daniels in the face. Robinson picked up the mic and said MJF isn’t the only person who knocks people out with a ring. He said he got the ring from TJ Maxx and that it’s made of “pubic zirconium.” White also cut a promo, blaming MJF for attacking him from behind.

Juice Robinson tells the world how he got his own "Diamond" ring.

Kyle Fletcher vs. Bear Boulder

Aussie Open’s Kyle Fletcher took on the massive Bear Boulder in a match that seemingly came out of nowhere. Fletcher landed a huge top-rope powerbomb on Boulder that was nothing short of impressive. He then locked in a dragon sleeper, which caused Boulder to tap out quickly. 

Big-time powerbomb from Kyle Fletcher!

The Acclaimed and Daddy Ass

Daddy Ass said they’ve been trios champs for 48 days. Max starts flirting with MJF before being cut off by Daddy Ass and Bowens. Bowens said Daddy Ass knows a few things about the girls, and he knows about guys. They gave Max tips to flirt with Renee, and he asked her about those Oral Sessions. She got mad and walked away, leaving Matt Menard, Angelo Parker, Jake Hager, and Daniel Garcia to come in and challenge The Acclaimed to a title match.

#DaddyAss & @bowens_official want to help @platinummax with his relationship skills but are interrupted by the former members of the JAS, who want a shot at the #AEW World Trios Titles NEXT SATURDAY on #AEWCollision!

Skye Blue vs. Kris Statlander

Skye Blue entered the ring with her new look. The commentators pointed out that she’s changed since getting sprayed in the eyes by Julia Hart. It was a competitive match, with Statlander hitting a delayed vertical suplex that seemed to last for a minute. The announce team continued to point out Skye’s new demeanor and more aggressive style, so it’s clear that they’re going somewhere with the Julia Hart story.

Skye Blue is on the comeback with the TBS Title on the line!

Statlander hit a Blue Thunder Bomb for a near fall after the commercial break. Blue landed a huge tilt-a-whirl DDT for a near fall that actually popped the crowd. Blue went for a cross-body from the top, but Statlander caught her and threw her for a near fall. Blue grabbed the upper hand again, landing a thrust kick and knee, but Statlander quickly countered into Saturday Night Fever for the win. 

Skye Blue didn't want to shake the hand of Kris Statlander post-match!

Rush is back

A Rush and Los Ingobernables promo package aired. Rush explains that he and the crew are back and that you get the horns if you mess with the bull. It seemed like these went away for a few weeks, so it’s good to see that they’re still going forward with the Lucha Underground-like Los Ingobernables storyline.




Do you have what it takes to be #INGOBERNABLE?

Miro promo

Miro said the last few weeks have been testing. He said Perry would be surrounded by the things she loves, and pursuing gold would anger her more. He said he would prevent this by stopping her from working with other wrestlers as he grabbed Action Andretti and tossed him away.

"I am willing to destroy every man to protect the one woman."
