“Kyle what do I know. Been out of the business too long. You don’t know AEW fans. You’re an idiot-just watch Tony will show you. Let me repeat myself for those except Kyle who clearly listened m- wrestling shoes do not work on Saturdays. Never have. Never will. Now you all can try and come up with something else but try and understand some of us who are in the business kind of know what we are talking about. All that said I would never float about being right and an entire fan base being wrong. Not my style. ”

Dax Harwood of FTR directly responded to Coach’s tweet about Collision, and he emphasized that they are trying to build a brand with the new show which will likely take more than three weeks to accomplish. Harwood posted the following response:

“Hey Coach. We’re trying to build a brand. It will take time; we understand that. Hopefully you do too! This roster absolutely loves wrestling. Like, an entity. LOVES it. I know you probably can’t relate to that. Will this Saturday night tv show endeavor work? Who knows.

What I……do know is, we’ll all work our a**es off to MAKE it work. I hope you, & people like you, give us an opportunity to show you, professional wrestling IS alive.

I know you know how Monday nights work, but maybe you’ll give us more than 3 weeks to make this work. If not, you’re..…more than welcome to tell me I’m wrong. What I’m not wrong about is, wrestling fans love wrestling. And we’ll always work to make them proud. Give us a chance.”

AEW Collision launched on 6/17 with 816,000 viewers for the first episode then managed to draw 595,000 viewers for the second episode. Last week’s episode drew 432,000 viewers, so it will be interesting to see what type of numbers the show brings in moving forward.
