CM Punk has commented on the growth of AEW Collision, naming stars he wants to be featured on the brand.
Since June 17, Collision has established itself as the home of some of AEW’s biggest stars.
One star who has been branded a ‘Collision guy’ is CM Punk, who has wrestled on five of the seven Collision episodes which have aired thus far.
Speaking with Justin Barrasso for Sports Illustrated, Punk noted that a number of individuals are responsible for the growth of the brand.
Naming the likes of FTR, Samoa Joe, Jay White and Juice Robinson as stars who have contributed to the brand, Punk singled out RUSH as a star who is ‘f**king awesome’.
Calling the growth of Collision a team effort, Punk said:
“It’s a team effort. FTR is a big part of it. There is a group of people I want highlighted on Collision almost every Saturday.
“It’s a lot of people and it’s hard to get them in there, but it’s FTR, Samoa Joe, Jay White and Juice, the Gunns, Ricky Starks, all three members of House of Black, Andrade, and we just got Rush–that guy is f**king awesome, I want him on Collision, too–Hobbs, Miro, and I don’t want to forget anyone else.
“Give me a Statlander every week, give me a Toni Storm every week. That’s what is going to drive repeat viewers, knowing they’ll see these people every Saturday.
“That’s how we’ll hold a rating. It’s 100 percent a team effort.
“We want to bring new people up. That’s the rub. People recognize that.
“A perfect example is Gunn Club. They’re right there, and they need to associate with people who are perceived to be top guys.”
While RUSH has been wrestling for AEW since June 2022, the star re-signed with the company in July after negotiating on a new deal following the expiration of his original contract.
