AEW considering backup location for Collision debut due to CM Punk situation

AEW is considering a backup location for the debut edition of Collision next month.

Dave Meltzer is reporting that Daily's Place in Jacksonville, Florida is being considered as a backup location. AEW had originally set to launch the show at the United Center in Chicago on June 17, but plans are currently up in the air due to a dispute between Punk and AEW.

Meltzer writes:

AEW has had contact with Daily's Place as a possible back-up location for the debut of Collision on 6/17. This is not an official change, but it does appear that the CM Punk situation has until Wednesday to go whichever way it goes and if he's not appearing then they won't go to the United Center. People involved with the proposed event said they were told yesterday about the show being possible and that a decision would be made over the next week.

The feeling is, and I agree with this, that the United Center is not the right place for the debut unless Punk is going to be there because fans will expect him and be disappointed if he's not there, whether he's advertised or not. Also, without fans believing he will be there, I don't see them being able to sell enough tickets on such short notice that it would be worth it since they already have a show a few days later at the Wintrust Arena.

Meltzer reported in this week’s Observer Newsletter that Punk was under the impression that Ace Steel would return to AEW as a producer for the new Collision television program. The conflict between Punk and AEW emerged when Tony Khan told Punk that Steel could work with Punk, but would have to work remotely.
