A roster split is not something Khan has locked AEW into.
This weekend, All Elite Wrestling is launching their Collision program on TNT which is going to feature the return of CM Punk. He’ll be tagging with AEW World Tag Team Champions FTR (Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler) to face Juice Robinson, Jay White and ROH World Television Champion Samoa Joe.
