AEW's debut in Memphis, TN at the Fedex Forum on Saturday 10/21 will officially go on sale today at 10 AM local time.  AEW has announced that legendary Memphis announcer Dave Brown will be appearing, which is pretty awesome.

Announced for this Saturday's Collision in Grand Rapids, Michigan at the Van Andel Arena is Rob Van Dam appearing, Andrade El Idolo vs. Jay White, AEW Tag Team Champions FTR vs. The Workhorsemen and a Texas Death Match with Ricky Starks vs. Bryan Danielson.

The Prince Nana dancing bit has really started to take off as a social media thing.  I have to admit, as someone who watched him from his very first matches on the NYC indepenent scene, it's really something to see Nana finally find his niche and on national television.  He's someone who's really never stopped hustling all these years and timing finally worked out for him.   I hope that gives hopes to some of the other journeymen talents out there who keep working hard as they get older and the window of opportunity, on paper, shrinks.

AEW TBS Champion Kris Statlander will be working the 10/13 Create A Pro Wrestling event in Melville, NY, returning to where she first trained as a wrestler.

Deonn Russman, who is a regular to WrestlePro in Alaska and New Jersey, worked the AEW Collision taping over the weekend in State College, PA.  He's a name to keep an eye out for. 

Bobby Cruise, who is one of the best modern ring announcers, period, worked his first-ever live non-PPV broadcast over the weekend, ring announcing AEW Collision. 

AEW's Alex Reynolds and John Silver will be inducted into The New York Wrestling Connection Hall of Fame on 10/28 at the promotion's debut at the Space at Westbury in Westbury, Long Island.  They each broke in at NYWC and there was a time period where they, Tony Nese and Papadon were just tearing that place down every month with great performances.  For tickets, visit
