AEW Collision 11/17/23
From the Kia Forum Los Angeles, California! Kevin Kelly and Nigel McGuiness are on commentary as Tony Schiavone is waiting in the ring for Christian Cage and company.
In a town full of plastic, phony people, it’s probably nice for LA to have some truth. Tomorrow will be Sting’s last match ever, and when he’s gone, if Darby needs a father… Christian knows a guy. It’s a good thing Ric Flair already looks like the Crypt Keeper, because Christian will send him to his maker if he gets involved tomorrow night. Copeland has always been jealous of Christian, and Beth should keep the girls up late so they see Copeland get his neck broken.
Lexi Nair is with Big Bill and Ricky Starks. Starks said he went to Tony Khan and asked for a stipulation, and Khan allowed him to choose one. Tomorrow night’s AEW World Tag Team Championship Four-Way is now a ladder match.
Match #1. Miro vs. Daniel Garcia
Pair of gut wrench suplexes by Miro. Miro pounds on the body of Garcia in the corner, and now the head, as Garcia covers up. Short-arm clothesline by Miro and another gut wrench suplex. Miro catches a cross body and slams Garcia. Miro beats on Garica outside the ring during the commercial break. Garcia evades a charge and hits a pair of running knees in the corner. Single leg dropkick by Garcia. A second. A third. Garcia looks for a fourth but eats a brutal pump kick from Miro. GAME OVER! Says Miro. Garcia grabs the attempted stomp and responds with some overhand chops to the chest and face. Garcia ducks a high kick and connects with a pair of palm strikes and a Saito suplex! Garcia is going to dance, but Menard is here to stop it! Miro charges but Garcia sends him into Menard and rolls Miro up for two. Crossface by Garcia! Garcia transitions into a Sharpshooter, right into a DragonTamer! Miro reaches back and grabs the head of Garcia and dribbled it off the mat, violently. Huge pump kick by Miro and Game Over is locked in. This one’s history!
Rating: ***. It was short and sweet. Miro took everyone Garcia had, but the monster that is Miro was able to hang on.
Lexi is in the back with CJ Perry and Andrade. Perry says that Andrade is the best wrestler in the world, a third generation wrestler, and she’s entered him into the Continental Classic. Perry says Andrade gets a bonus if he wins, but he wasn’t prepared for this. Perry whispers something in to his ear and he says he trust her… so that’s Danielson and Andrade in the tournament so far.

Rating: ***1/4. Lots of moving parts to this one and one “holy s” moment after the other. Nice to see Trent get a win and this one was a car crash, which it had to be.

Winner: No Contest
Rating: ***1/2. These guys were on their way to something really good here, but the match did it’s job in making you want to see the ladder match tomorrow.
All the participants of tomorrow night’s four-team ladder match hit the ring! The brawl starts inside as Brody King and Big Bill lock eyes from opposite sides and the crowd is on their feet.

Falling powerbomb out of the corner by Matthews! Curb stomp and this one is over!
Winner: Buddy Matthews
Rating: ****. This match was fantastic. Matthews and Yuta are often overlooked in their respective groups, which is a shame, but there are a lot of big personalities involved. That said, they may be the best wrestlers of their respective groups, and they always deliver. I wish this story had a little more leading up to it, but the match delivered.
Matthews leaves the ring and grabs a chair, but Claudio is here to make the save! Claudio says if Matthews wants the attention of the BCC, he doesn’t have to cut a spooky promo. Claudio likes to make his challenges in the light, face-to-face. Claudio wants Matthews at Full Gear, and Matthews accepts.

Shida on the attack early, suplexing Ruby into Saraya, into the turnbuckle. Shida delivers ten-punches from the mount but Ruby gets free and pulls Shida to the mat.

Saraya is heated and Statlander takes Parker out, as Ruby checks on him, Shida hits the Kitana! That’ll do it.
Winners: Kris Statlander & Hikaru Shida
Rating: **1/2. This match felt a little rushed here, which is possible, since there were seven matches tonight. The star power was there, but it kind of just existed.
Tony Schiavone sits down with MJF. MJF is taking this match against The Gunns because he made a promise to Cole and he intends to keep it. MJF will do whatever it takes to win. Jay White stole the Triple B to prove to himself he’s a champion… but he’s not. MJF says the likelihood of MJF winning both of his matches tomorrow night, is slim to none, but MJF likes those odds.
Final Thoughts: Now THIS is a go-home show for the PPV. It seems like AEW split which makes would get promoted on which show ahead of Full Gear, and despite the champ not being here… this show did a heck of a job getting people excited for tomorrow. On top of the storylines, the wrestling was strong bell-to-bell, especially Yuta/Matthews, the main event, and the four-way. Also, the crowd was awake, which always adds to the atmosphere. 8.25/10
