AEW WrestleDream is set for Sunday, October 1 2023 from Seattle’s Climate Pledge Arena.
Already announced, a series of big matchups including appearances from some of New Japan Pro Wrestling’s biggest stars.
Zack Sabre Jr. will take on Bryan Danielson, FTR defends their AEW Tag Team Championship against Aussie Open, and Eddie Kingston will defend both the ROH World Championship and the NJPW Openweight Championship against Katsuyori Shibata.
Of course, there have rumors abound about a potential meaning of the ‘new era’ comments, including wondering if a sunrise debut in Seattle may be in store.
One name fan are most excited about is the prospect of Adam Copeland (formerly known as Edge in WWE) making a surprise appearance as his contract is reportedly set to expire with WWE prior to the event, although there’s no word yet on whether he’s decided to go to AEW, stay with WWE, or something else entirely.
