Bryan Danielson will be in action on the March 16 episode of AEW Collision.

In a tweet, Tony Khan announced that Bryan Danielson will face former ROH Pure Champion Katsuyori Shibata on the March 16 episode of AEW Collision. This will mark Shibata’s first match in AEW since November 25, where he lost the ROH Pure Championship to Wheeler Yuta on AEW Rampage.

Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful (via Fightful Select) previously reported that Shibata was forced to return to Japan in November due to urgent visa issues. The circumstances were the reason why he dropped the ROH Pure Championship to Wheeler Yuta. At the time, Sapp wrote that Tony Khan had big hopes and plans for Shibata, who was said to be very happy in AEW.

In a new report, Sapp wrote that Shibata’s visa situation was resolved this week. AEW then quickly booked the match against Danielson for AEW Collision.

Khan also announced that TBS Champion Julia Hart will defend her title against Trish Adora on AEW Collision.

The updated card is as follows:

  • Bryan Danielson vs. Katsuyori Shibata

  • TBS Championship: Julia Hart (c) vs. Trish Adora

  • AEW World Tag Team Championship Tournament begins

  • Kyle O’Reilly vs. Bryan Keith

WrestleZone will have coverage of AEW Collision as it airs on March 16.
