Dennis Rodman on AEW Collision

Sep 1, 2023 - by Staff

AEW just announced that NBA Legend Dennis Rodman will be appearing on Saturday’s AEW Collision episode, the final show before All Out.

Collision is being held at the United Center in Chicago, which is the same arena Rodman played 3 championship NBA seasons with the Chicago Bulls. Rodman was in town this weekend for a signing at Starrcast.

Rodman joined the NWO in 1997 thanks to his friend Hulk Hogan. He made several WCW appearances between 1997 and 1999 and even wrestled a few matches. Rodman & Hogan were defeated by The Giant & Lex Luger at Bash at the Beach 1997, Rodman & Hogan defeated NBA Legend Karl Malone & DDP at Bash at the Beach 1998, and Rodman was defeated by Randy Savage at Road Wild 1999. After WCW, Rodman returned to the ring in 2000 for a DQ loss to Curt Hennig on the Superstars of Wrestling PPV held in Australia. He retired after this match but later won the Hulk Hogan’s Celebrity Championship Wrestling competition in 2008, which aired on CMT.

    Ugh… See? It’s this stuff that drives me nuts about ALL of wrestling today. Why can’t we just give up on the ’90s? NOBODY in 1985 was looking to 1965 for cues on “cool”. NOBODY in 1995 was looking to 1975 for cues on “cool”. NOBODY!!!! Why can’t we get past this nWo, crotch-chop, Rodman, spray painting stuff and start plowing NEW GROUND?!?! What’s next, MASTER P?!? We’ve had Tyson in AEW, Jericho has been rocking the ’90s hard, CM Punk is SPRAY PAINTING STRAPS(!!!), and now RODMAN?! Dude’s tenure in WCW ISN’T remembered all that fondly, let’s not forget. This is driving me crazy. The reason the ’90s were great for wrestling was because EVERYBODY WAS DOING NEW STUFF! ECW wasn’t doing WWF-lite, or Mid-South-lite, or Flair/Dusty-lite; WCW was REINVENTING THE WHEEL with the New World Order, and WWF was creating a WHOLE NEW way of doing TV. It was fresh and new THEN but it is old and LAZY now. I’m so sick of it I could barf. It was done better in the ’90s. PERIOD. These guys trying to be cool are just cosplaying a memory, and not doing it very well. It’s sad. So many creative minds and all they can seem to do is rewind the same EP VHS tape again and again and again. Everybody is afraid of new. Shows stay on the air for 20 YEARS now and wrestlers can’t seem to break new ground. I just don’t get it. What are we all so afraid of? What is so scary about new? Whatever AEW was supposed to be in the start, it ain’t anymore. It’s cosplay “Attitude” and Stranglemania. It sucks. PERIOD. And WWE isn’t all that far behind. At least WWE isn’t using blood like a dinner bell to keep basement dwelling trolls happy. Bray Wyatt was so innovative because he wasn’t AFRAID TO FAIL!!!! Is that what we’re so afraid of? What a terrible way to live a life, in my eyes. I’d rather fail doing what I love than succeed as rehash of the past. Rodman can go pound sand as far as I’m concerned. If I were a diehard fan of AEW I’d be insulted that Khan keeps doing this kind of stuff and thinking that’s what I wanted to see. This retro cosplay is lazy, boring, and a true waste of talent.
