Former WWE name was BACKSTAGE at AEW Collision this week

Last updated

AEW Collision, despite the simultaneous occurrence of WWE SummerSlam, successfully took place on August 5th in Greenville, North Carolina.

The event was buzzing with several notable personalities, both on-screen and backstage. Among them were the former IMPACT Wrestling star Ziggy Dice and the wrestling legend Dennis Condrey.

But the presence that caught everyone’s attention was that of a former WWE name.

Cathy Corino’s WWE and Wrestling Journey

Cathy Corino, also known by many as Allison Danger, was the unexpected guest backstage at AEW Collision as revealed by PWInsider. Her wrestling journey is quite remarkable. She was a part of the inaugural Ring of Honor event way back in February 2002 during “Era of Honor Begins”.

Furthermore, she played a pivotal role in the expansion and success of SHIMMER Women’s Wrestling.

In 2021, Corino took on the role of a coach at the WWE NXT Performance Center. However, her stint with WWE was short-lived as she was released in 2022, just a few months after her appointment.

A Potential Asset for AEW?

The wrestling community is abuzz with speculation about Corino’s appearance at AEW Collision. Given her vast experience and knowledge of the wrestling world, many fans believe that she would be a valuable addition to the AEW backstage team.

Her expertise could particularly benefit the AEW women’s division, which is always looking for ways to enhance its offerings and appeal to a broader audience.

As of writing, it has not been confirmed if she has signed with the company in any capacity, although as noted by Mike Johnson of PWInsider: “She would be a great addition to AEW, or well, any promotion.”
