AEW taped Saturday’s Collision on Friday, along with airing a LIVE episode of Rampage.

According to the Wrestling Observer, this episode set the record for having the second highest walk-up ticket sales for an AEW show:

“Some people really want to jump on the AEW is doing bad, and they’re cold. There’s been some signs of life. And even the show I was at last night, it was not a great show as far as compared to like, say, the first times and everything like that, and it wasn’t like loaded with great matches, but it was not a cold promotion.

For Oakland, for the building they’re in, and how much that building usually has been drawing for WWE. They did pretty well. They did a great walk-up, which is a really interesting thing because they’ve been weak in advance sales, and maybe that’s because of the high prices, but maybe people are just kind of waiting till the end, figuring they’ll get a better ticket deal at the end.

But whatever it was, and in some of these cities, they’ve really started to ramp up local promotion like [Powerhouse] Hobbs did a lot of media here the last couple of days.

So it was actually the second biggest walk-up for an AEW television show in history. It beat out the CM Punk show in Chicago. They only ended up with 4,500 in the building, but I mean, it was tracking to do maybe in the threes. It did not feel like a cold promotion. I mean, it’s not a hot promotion.”

In the main event of Collision, “Edge” Adam Copeland, Sting & Darby Allin defeated Lance Archer & The Righteous (with Jake Roberts). After the match, TNT Champion Christian Cage and Copeland had a face-off.
