Reportedly, Bryan Danielson will be assisting with the creative for the new show. The former Daniel Bryan is no stranger to this role, as he was a part of the WWE creative team during his final run with the sports entertainment juggernaut.
During his push as a singles star, Big E credited Bryan as one of his biggest supporters behind the scenes.
Drew McIntyre Update
Drew McIntyre has not been seen in WWE since WrestleMania 39. He was drafted to the Monday Night Raw brand as part of the 2023 WWE Draft but was recently removed from the promotional material for WWE Money in the Bank.

In the latest update regarding Ace Steel and CM Punk‘s status with AEW. Nick Hausman of Haus of Wrestling reports that AEW rehired Steel months ago, and he had been working with Tony remotely on creative.
Reportedly, it was agreed upon that Steel would return to the road with the company with the launch of AEW Collision. However, the company has since decided that Steel would not be able to return to his regular role behind the scenes.
Steel was fired after the backstage altercation at AEW All Out 2022 that included himself, CM Punk, and The Elite. CM Punk was expected to be announced as returning alongside the launch announcement for AEW Collision. However, Warner Bros. Discovery would later issue a statement saying that CM Punk was not associated with the program at this time.
