Jim Ross comments on the differences between Dynamite and Collision.
AEW Collision premiered on Saturday, June 17, 2023. The two hour show is live nearly every week and showcases talent that is often not featured on AEW Dynamite or Rampage.
Many fans have noted that Collision feels different to Dynamite, with Collision often being praised for following more of a structure and providing better in-ring action.
On the latest episode of his Grilling JR podcast, Jim Ross talked about the differences between the two shows, noting that the atmosphere and mindset at Collision is entirely different than Dynamite's atmosphere and mindset.
“The atmosphere at Collision, in my opinion, is entirely different than the mindset and the atmosphere at Dynamite. There’s less people, less crew, less talents, so it’s a lot calmer. I think the talents have more time to work their matches out. It’s just a different atmosphere, and it’s a good atmosphere. Always fun. Good seeing the talents. We got a good crew going. I think Punk and Tony Khan pretty much put that roster together, and I like it. That’s good talents. They’re motivated. They like the ownership of that show and the fact that they can make a difference, and I think that’s cool. All good, man. I’m looking to it. I enjoy being around the talent."
Ross has been featured on two episodes of Collision so far, with his most recent appearance falling on the August 5 edition of the show.
