Tonight, AEW World champion Maxwell Jacob Friedman wrestles Kenny Omega in a match that not only will determine who leaves with the belt (which is actually in Jay White’s possession, but that’s a whole nother story), but whether MJF or Omega will have the longest reign in its history!
Plus, Hikaru Shida will make her second defense of the Women’s World title this week when she faces Abadon in a Fright Night Fight (whatever that is), Jay White goes one-on-one with AR Fox, House of Black will be in action... and more!

Enjoy the show!
AEW COLLISION RESULTS FOR OCT. 28
We’re getting right into it with...
Jay White vs. AR Fox
Fox was out there doing some fantastic flying around, getting the crowd going crazy with big dives over the top rope to take Bullet Club Gold out and then going to the other side to do the same to White. He got a near fall off another big move off the top rope and the fans rewarded them with “this is awesome” chants. Fox threatened again but in the end it was Switchblade getting it done.

After, someone in all black showed up ringside trying to steal the championship belt from White and it turned out to be MJF. He nearly got away with the title but it was wrestled away from his grips and he took off through the crowd to retreat.
The Acclaimed backstage talking to the camera.
They’ve been trios champions for 62 days. Next week will be a big day because it will mark 69 days as champions. Max Caster got catfished by someone and once again put in the corner for the rest of the promo.
Poor guy was sending photos to a catfish.
Still, everyone loves The Acclaimed, and they did the scissors bit, and fun was had.
The Boys vs. The Gunns
Bullet Club Gold didn’t even leave ringside after White’s match, instead electing to hang around for this match, which came right after. Dalton Castle, for what it’s worth, did some of an entrance with The Boys but left without actually hanging ringside.
As it turned out, there wasn’t much reason to. The Boys got some early offense in but not much and The Gunns put them down without much issue.

Ryan Nemeth interviewed.
He says things have been going great for him in Hollywood. He might be the new voice of a few things, he’s going on tour for comedy, the whole thing. He needs to secure great management for all this.
But he has someone in mind.
The camera pans to CJ Perry’s door. He knocks. Gets an answer and seems upset about it.
He grabs Nemeth and tosses him into the room. We don’t see what happens from there but we hear it. He got beat up.
Abadon vs. Hikaru Shida
This is the Fright Night Fight for the AEW women’s championship. They have the ring decorated for Halloween. The weapons came out in the form of a bone and a piece of foam. Yeah. After a commercial break, they came back to Shida flying off the top rope like a witch with a broom between her legs but landing on her feet and getting hurt from it. They went back and forth with more and more weapons, including a pumpkin and a jack-o-lantern, which got a HUGE pop. That’s where the finish came, too with the big knee while Abadon had it on.

While celebrating, Timeless Toni Storm made her entrance and posed on the commentator’s desk. “What a star,” they said.
“There is only one. Phenomenal!”
Storm just posed while eating as they faded out.
Samoa Joe vs. Rhett Titus
Titus was introduced as a former ROH world television champion, and that title was on the line here. The match wasn’t quite a squash but there was never really any doubt and Titus took his loss like he was supposed to, and in relatively short order.

Claudio Castagnoli tells us Bryan Danielson suffered a broken orbital bone, and they don’t know if it was from Okada or Orange Cassidy but it doesn’t matter because he is going to make both of them pay.
He’ll travel to Japan to make Okada pay if he has to.
But he wants Cassidy on Dynamite next week for the International championship. It honestly frightens him a little bit thinking about what he can do to Orange but he hurt a member of the Blackpool Combat Club and now he’s going to get hurt himself.
Ricky Starks vs. Dax Harwood
Before the match could get going, the lights went out. When they came back up, the House of Black was out in the crowd, here to watch along. Harwood had the early control, having his way with chops in the corner and some leg drops thrown in for good measure. Starks cut him off to get some heat. They went into the big back-and-forth, with Starks getting the better of it. Dax made a comeback of his own, hitting a big knee and then an even bigger piledriver that looked like the end. However, Big Bill was there to pull Harwood off him, something the referee apparently didn’t see.
Back in the ring, Starks hit a big piledriver of his own and that was enough to end it.

“You hear that, folks? That’s the door closing on FTR,” said Kevin Kelly.
The place went dark again.
The lights came back up to show Julia Hart. She raised her arm, dropped it, and the lights went out again.
When they came back up, the House of Black was in the ring surrounding Starks and Bill. And then they turned their attention to FTR. Then LFI hit the scene, first getting in FTR’s face and seemingly preparing for a fight. Then they turned to House of Black and the champs and started throwing blows.
The brawl kicked off huge from there, with everyone fighting all around the ring and inside it. LFI and FTR got the best of it and stood tall together in the ring as the heels backed off.
Backstage and Andrade being interviewed.
Lexi asks how everything is affecting him. He says he’s a businessman and this is his business and nobody else’s.
She said she isn’t even sure what that means.
Kris Statlander and Willow Nightingale are being interviewed, with Skye Blue also there. Statlander says they need to settle whatever is going on between the two of them. Willow says she’s felt this tension between them and it keeps going stronger. Ever since they both got misted, something has been getting even worse with Skye and now that Julia is back, perhaps they should address it.
Blue says if there’s anything to say to Julia, it’s between them and she walks off.
And that’s that.
Claudio Castagnoli vs. Tracy Williams
They were in the middle of giving Hot Sauce his ring announcement when Castagnoli came barreling in with an uppercut. He blasted him with a few more heavy shots, making clear he’s not messing around even one little bit. Then he hit another big uppercut and that was that.
Claudio Castagnoli def. Tracy Williams via pinfall
A true squash match from a man on a mission.
Samoa Joe backstage talking to MJF, saying he needs a friend and Joe could be that for him. He just wants a championship match like he deserves. But he wouldn’t put an ultimatum on him. But if he finds himself in trouble tonight, just scream his name and he’ll be his friend. Good luck against a dangerous opponent, but he’ll keep his ears perked up.
The main event is next.
MJF vs. Kenny Omega
This is for the AEW world championship.
They’re going long with this one. Some fun spots early, like MJF calling for sportsmanship and offering his hand to shake. He gets the crowd to chant for it and Omega takes it. Naturally, MJF pokes him in the eye.
A lot of back and forth strategy games throughout the match, with the two trying to one up each other along the way. Omega went to the furniture, setting up a table on the outside and they teased for a long while doing something with it. Then, it was as though they wouldn’t, and finally they paid it off by having Omega hit a big powerbomb through it. “Holy shit” chants rang out.
Huge back-and-forth battle coming back from it, the two going blow-for-blow. The near falls started and they were electric. Omega hit a V Trigger, then another. He got MJF for the One Winged Angel but Don Callis came running out and Kenny set the champ down to chirp at him. Another V Trigger but no dice. They trade yet again, this time with roll ups for near falls.
Heatseeker for two from MJF and everyone sells so the fans can show their appreciation. Panama Sunrise reversed into a pin for an incredibly close two. Panama Sunrise actually connects but only gets two. And then another Heatseeker, with some extra umph on it, and that was enough.

That was one hell of a match.
They showed Samoa Joe in the back watching on a monitor. They also showed Wardlow watching. Yet again, everyone gunning for the champ. Powerhouse Hobbs shown watching as well. And, of course, Bullet Club Gold were watching too.
Omega gets up and MJF offers his hand. The fans cheer and clap. The two shake and then embrace in the middle of the ring. MJF raises Omega’s arm. Omega tells the ref to raise the champ’s arm and he does.
The celebration as they go off the air.
