On June 29th 2023, AEW taped matches in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada for the July 1st edition of Collision. Here are the results courtesy of PWInsider.com’s Billy Krotchsen…
*AEW Champion MJF defeated Kip Morst via submission with The LeBell Lock. MJF took the mic and complained he was supposed to have a day off but instead he’s in Hamilton, Ontario. He roasted the fans and said he will beat anyone from Hamilton right now with the title on the line. A heavyset wrestler came out but Ethan Page shoved past him and came to the ring. MJF said this was cute but Page isn’t on his level. Page slapped the mic out of his hand and cut a big babyface promo and said MJF doesn’t know what he’s capable of and everyone in the back seems to have forgotten what Page is capable of, so he’s going to show everyone, putting over his father and what his father taught him. He trash talked MJF until MJF agreed to put the belt on the line…
*MJF defeated Ethan Page in a really damn good back and forth match with Page getting to show the most he has in a long time inside the ring. Hamilton was really behind him, especially since MJF was wearing red white and blue to anatagonize the Canadians. Lots of good near falls before MJF caught him in the ropes and nailed the leaping piledriver, using the ropes for leverage.
*Powerhouse Hobbs pinned Dustin Rhodes with a spinebuster to advance in the Owen Hart Foundation Tournament.
*Miro defeated Anthony Henry via submission.
*Inside the ring, Tony Schiavone interviewed Bullet Club Gold. They put themselves over until they found out they were barred from ringside for Juice Robinson vs. Ricky Starks later tonight. Jay White said he had a message for CM Punk, mocking the idea Punk was the best in the world. He said Punk returned with a goodie in his bag and when you wave gold in front of Jay’s face, it’s tantalizing. FTR has their attention too and they want the Tag titles. Punk, Starks and FTR appeared on the screen. FTR were ready to fight anytime. Starks promised to beat Juice tonight.
*Ricky Starks pinned Juice Robinson to advance in the Owen Hart Foundation Tournament with a jackknife pinfall. Bullet Club Gold surrounded him. CM Punk and FTR hit the ring to disuade them from attacking.
*AEW TBS Champion Kris Statlander retained over Lady Frost.
*ROH World Television Champion Samoa Joe defeated Roderick Strong in a quarterfinals match for the Men’s Owen Hart Foundation Tournament. CM Punk was on commentary. The match ended via referee stoppage when Strong would not tap out to the Coquina Clutch. After the match, Joe used a steel chair on Strong. Punk then rushed in the ring and stared out at Joe as Joe backed up the ramp. Adam Cole also hit the ring to check on Strong, who was taken out on a stretcher
