Sammy Guevara vs. Powerhouse Hobbs  

AEW Collision kicked off with the No Disqualification Match between Sammy Guevara and Powerhouse Hobbs. Before the match began, Kevin Kelly explained that luckily for Guevara, everyone was barred from ringside and Tony Schiavone added that Don Callis was not there as he was in London escorting Will Ospreay to the States for his match against Konosuke Takeshita. Sammy Guevara got the jump on Hobbs before the bell and the two went into an intense, brawling match. Early on, Hobbs approached Kevin Kelly and demanded his belt which he promptly used on Guevara.

A little later, Sammy Guevara set up two tables on the outside but was caught by Hobbs on the apron as Hobbs hit a spinebuster on Guevara through the tables.

Guevara then hit Hobbs with two (gimmicked) beer bottles that he grabbed from the crowd which landed Hobbs on two additional tables set up on the outside. Sammy grabbed a tall ladder and hit a Swanton off the ladder onto Hobbs and through the tables. 

Double bottle knockout!

Bang Bang Scissor Gang

Next up was Jay White, Colten Gunn, and Billy Gunn representing the Bang Bang Scissor Gang taking on The Iron Savages. Max Caster seemed to whiff on his rap coming to the ring and it was hard to tell if it was an actual gaffe or part of the story. Meanwhile, at one point Colten Gunn jumped past his father to tag Jay White seemingly upsetting Daddy Ass. Jay White was able to get the pinfall on Jacked Jameson with the Blade Runner. 

Colten Gunn tags in Jay White and clears the ring!

Danielson Promo

Lexi Nair interviewed Bryan Danielson backstage and he put over Jun Akiyama as a legend but then turned his attention to Eddie Kingston who would be on commentary for the match. Danielson said he doesn’t respect Kingston and called him unprofessional and mocked his promos. He said his wasted potential pisses him off and he would beat him at Revolution.

Malakai Black vs. Bryan Keith

The next match of the evening was House of Black’s Malakai Black taking on The Bounty Hunter Bryan Keith. Keith held his own with Malakai and nearly had him beaten with a Liger Bomb. The commentary team noted that it had been nearly three and a half years since Malakai’s last singles loss. Immediately after, Black hit the spinning heel kick and scored the win in just under eleven minutes. 

Back & forth aggression on display!

After the match, the lights went out and when they came back on Mark Briscoe was in the ring with a kendo stick. Briscoe fought off Matthews and King and attempted to hit Malakai with a steel spike but missed, allowing HOB to lay him out.

Serena Deeb vs. Lady Frost

After re-airing the Sting/Darby Allin promo package from Dynamite, we jumped into Serena Deeb taking on Lady Frost who was subbing in for Kiera Hogan who was under the weather. Before the match, it was explained that Frost recently spent some time in Mexico and a few highlights were shown of her competing in CMLL.

Bryan Danielson vs. Jun Akiyama

The main event of the night was Bryan Danielson taking on Jun Akiyama with Eddie Kingston on commentary. Taito Nakabayashi from New Japan was the referee for this match and Kevin Kelly noted it was to help with the language barrier.

Bryan Danielson vanquished Jun Akiyama with the Busaiku Knee in just under sixteen minutes. Eddie Kingston reiterated that he never had a problem with Danielson, it was always Danielson who had the problem with Kingston. Danielson shook Akiyama’s hand after the match and then gave Kingston the finger. This led to Akiyama slapping Danielson in the face to which Danielson apologized. Danielson then low-blowed Akiyama and Kingston jumped him. This brought out Claudio Castagnoli which in turn brought out FTR. Tony Schiavone announced that on Dynamite this Wednesday it would be Eddie Kingston & FTR vs. Bryan Danielson, Claudio Castagnoli & Jon Moxley.
