Collision in Korea was the largest professional wrestling pay-per-view event in history. It was jointly produced by World Championship Wrestling and New Japan Pro Wrestling, and took place over a period of two days on April 28 and 29, 1995 at May Day Stadium in Pyongyang, North Korea. However, it did not air in North America until August 4, 1995, when WCW broadcast a selection of matches from the show on pay-per-view. The event was the first PPV from a North American wrestling promotion to be held in North Korea, and holds the current record for the largest attendance for a wrestling event with a total of 340,000 people in attendance over the two days, although wrestling journalist Dave Meltzer states the attendance was 160,000, still making it the largest attended event in wrestling history.
NJPW's Hidekazu Tanaka was the ring announcer for the show, while Masao Tayama and Tiger Hattori refereed the matches. Commentary for the WCW pay-per-view presentation of the event was provided by Eric Bischoff, Mike Tenay and Kazuo Ishikawa.
