AEW Collision live results, open thread (Oct. 7, 2023): FTR vs. Ricky Starks & Big Bill


Here’s a place to check results and comment along with the new episode of AEW Collision, airing live tonight (Oct. 7) at a special 7 pm ET start time on TNT.

AEW is broadcasting this week’s show from Maverick Center in Salt Lake City.

Tonight, as AEW goes head-to-head with WWE for the second straight week (although the earlier start time means it will only air opposite the main Fastlane card for Collision’s second hour), Ricky Starks & Big Bill will challenge FTR for the World Tag titles!

We’ll also see Timeless Toni Storm take on Kiera Hogan, The Rated R Superstar Adam Copeland responds to Christian Cage’s rejection, Bryan Danielson battles Aussie Open’s Kyle Fletcher, Eddie Kingston defends the ROH World championship against Komander, and more!

Come right back here at 7 pm ET when the Collision live blog kicks off once the show starts on TNT. It will be below this line here.

Enjoy the show!


  • Collision begins with separate backstage promos from Bryan Danielson, Kyle Fletcher, Ricky Starks, FTR, and Eddie Kingston explaining why they will win their respective matches tonight.
  • Ricky Starks & Big Bill defeat FTR to become the new AEW World Tag Team Champions. The heels get the early jump on the champs, launching Cash Wheeler towards the announce table towards the end of FTR’s entrance. The ringside doctor is checking on Wheeler while Dax gets double teamed by Starks and Bill. Big clears off the table and intimidates the doctor away. Bill chokeslams Wheeler onto the table! Dax is all alone inside the ring fighting two men while Wheeler remains motionless on the outside. Big chokeslams Dax down to the mat. Starks calls for another one, and Big delivers. Starks calls for a third chokeslam, and so Dax goes for the ride one more time. Starks tags in and spears Harwood and goes for the pin...we have new champions!
  • Bryan Danielson defeats Kyle Fletcher. Fletcher took a crazy scary fall while diving through the ropes onto Danielson right before the commercial break. Fletcher was okay coming out of the break, and even scored multiple near falls on Bryan, including one on a Michinoku Driver. Fletcher followed that up with a Dragon Sleeper, sitting back on Bryan’s neck at a vicious angle. Danielson somehow worms his way out of the hold and manages to pin Fletcher down to the mat for three.
  • Gates of Agony jump Bryan as soon as the bell rings to end the match. Claudio Castagnoli and Wheeler Yuta quickly join the fray, fighting off Swerve’s allies. The commentators hype up Danielson vs. Strickland for next week on Dynamite as Blackpool Combat Club stands tall in the ring.
  • Tony Schiavone interviews Big Bill and Ricky Starks backstage. Starks says there will be no rematch for FTR. They are now the real faces of Collision.
  • Juice Robinson & The Gunns defeat Metalik, Gravity & Angelico. Jay White is ringside holding MJF’s AEW world championship. Gravity played possum to try fooling Gunn into a roll up, but it wasn’t enough to score the three count. Gravity botches a springboard move, so Metalik takes over for a splash that lands on the Gunns. But then he runs into the Gunns finisher, and Juice puts him away for the pin.
  • Jay White cuts a promo after the match, alongside Cardblade. White wonders why MJF isn’t here if the title means so much to him. White says Hangman hasn’t earned a match for the title, so White vs. Hangman next week on Dynamite will be a non-title match. MJF should take notes as Jay White does it all better than him. Guns up!
  • Nick Wayne explains why he turned on Darby in a pre-tape. He was sick of being in Darby’s shadow, just like Christian was sick of being in Adam Copeland’s shadow. In just one week, he’s realized that Christian is the father figure he always needed.
  • Iron Savages and Jacked Jameson are in the ring and ready to eat that ass.
  • Daddy Ass & The Acclaimed defeat Iron Savages & Jacked Jameson. Daddy Ass and Bowens combine for a tandem scissor elbow drop in the early going. Bowens is beat up all throughout the commercial break. The Savages miss a moonsault, which gives Bowens a window to make the hot tag to Caster. Caster hits an Attitude Adjustment on each of the Savages. The match breaks down into chaos with all six men going at it. Ass and Caster work together to land a double suplex. Bowens hits Scissor Me Timbers. Caster hits the mic drop elbow for the pin fall win.
  • We get a hype video for Timeless Toni Storm, who is in action next.
  • We get dueling pre-taped promos from Keith Lee and Shane Taylor, with both men determined to prove they are the better wrestler.
  • Toni Storm defeats Kiera Hogan. Kiera rips up Toni’s papers and there is an immediate slap to the face. Storm yanks Hogan down to the mat using her hair. Hogan goes up for a flying crossbody for a two count. Toni lures Kiera in and trips her into the lower turnbuckle. Toni then throws to a commercial break. Kiera lands a running boot in the corner coming out of the break. Storm suddenly catches Hogan in a Sky High slam for a near fall. Storm bites Hogan’s ass and suplexes her. Toni lands the running hip attack in the corner and finishes Kiera off with Storm Zero for the pin.
  • Renee Paquette informs Ruby Soho that she is banned from ringside when Saraya defends the AEW women’s world championship against Shida next Tuesday on Dynamite.
  • Eddie Kingston defeats Komander to retain the ROH world championship. Jim Ross joins the commentary team for this bout. Eddie chopped the hell out of Komander throughout the fight. Komander almost pulled off the upset following a twisting corkscrew crossbody. Komander follows up with a 450 splash for another near fall. He goes up top again but pays for it, with Eddie cutting him off. Kingston chops him some more and lays in headbutts too. Komander counters a superplex for a near fall. Eddie wipes out Komander with a lariat. Komander dodges the first spinning backfist but gets caught with the second one for the three count.
  • Eddie shakes Komander’s hand after the match.
  • Adam Copeland makes his entrance and grabs the mic in the ring. Adam says he is forever in debt to Jim Ross for signing him so many years ago. Copeland is confused by Christian’s rejection on Dynamite, because the whole point of coming to AEW was for them to team up again. Christian and Copeland were both medically retired for years and each fought their asses off to come back. At some point Cage became more distant and stopped taking his calls, so maybe that should have clued him in as to what was gonna happen on Wednesday. He says that dick is in a bond villain phase and Nick Wayne is the Persian cat he’s stroking. Christian appears on the video board and says he’ll provide answers on Title Tuesday. But the question is, will Adam make it there?
  • That prompts Luchasaurus and Nick Wayne to come down to the ring. Adam hits the Edgecution on Wayne and spears Luchasaurus off the ring apron. Adam goes for a spear on Wayne, but Lucha cuts him off and catches him in a chokeslam. Luchasaurus nails Adam with Extinction. The dino sets Adam up for a Conchairto, but Darby Allin comes from behind with a chair shot to make the save. Nick Wayne is on his knees begging off. Luchasaurus distracts Darby, which gives Wayne an opening to dropkick Darby. They set up Darby’s arm on the chair, and Wayne smashes it with the conchairto. Darby is writhing in pain while Copeland remains laid out.
  • That’s the end of the show, folks!
