Tony Khan Reveals AEW Collision Broadcast Team

Leave it to Tony Khan to take things right down to the wire in revealing the commentary team for the launch of AEW's new Saturday show "Collision." Just one day before the program's launch, Khan has finally shared with the public via Twitter who will be at the broadcast desk tomorrow night. 


On the call for "Collision" will be play-by-play announcer Kevin Kelly, who has been the voice of NJPW for quite some time. He'll be joined by Nigel McGuinness on color commentary. McGuinness has been working on the broadcasts of "ROH on Honor Club" since being reintroduced at this year's Supercard of Honor. And finally, Jim Ross will be providing "expert analysis" to the team as the third person in the booth. As of last week, Ross was still in the dark on the make-up of the commentary team. His primary responsibilities have been leading the broadcasts of "Rampage" since being shifted off "Dynamite," so it remains to be seen if his presence on "Collision" will be as a permanent fixture or if he'll be picked for select spots to be involved. 


Kelly added, via his own Twitter, that this does not affect his role with NJPW. The plan moving forward will be for him to be replaced with a temporary fill-in when he's required in Japan for any dates that might conflict, particularly for the upcoming G1 Climax tournament. "Collision" reunites him with both Ross and McGuinness, who had been his broadcast partners at times in WWE and ROH, respectively.
