All Elite Wrestling has had an extremely busy schedule as of late. In addition to their regular weekly programming Dynamite, Rampage, and Collision, the promotion delivered two incredible events at the end of the summer: the record-setting All In at London’s Wembley Stadium and the annual All Out in Chicago, Illinois. However, just a few short weeks after their last premium live event, Tony Khan and company are paying homage to the legendary Antonio Inoki by putting on a show during the one-year anniversary of his death. And that’s how AEW WrestleDream was born!

On Oct. 1, the inaugural WrestleDream will emanate from the Climate Pledge Arena in Seattle, Washington. With such a massive show coming to the Pacific Northwest, it only made sense to spotlight one of the area’s favorite sons to headline the event in a dream match. And considering that the wrestling world was deprived of this match due to injury in the past, it’s the perfect time to see who is really the best technical wrestler in the world when Zack Sabre Jr. finally goes one-on-one with Bryan Danielson;

Of course, this isn’t the only highly anticipated match on the card. With world-renowned talents such as the Lucha Bros, Katsuyori Shibata, Aussie Open, The Elite, Will Ospreay, Orange Cassidy, and many more lined up to appear, WrestleDream should be a wrestling fan’s dream. But before the festivities kick off this weekend, we’re here to tell you how to watch AEW WrestleDream and what to expect when it begins.

AEW WrestleDream card

ZSJ vs “The American Dragon” is clearly a dream scenario. And for a show called WrestleDream, it’s meant to be stacked with other dream matches. However, it may be a nightmare for Maxwell Jacob Friedman. Previously, the AEW World Champion was meant to team with his Better Than You Bay Bay partner Adam Cole to defend their Ring of Honor Tag Team Championships against The Righteous. Unfortunately, Cole suffered an injury and will not be medically cleared to compete. 

But rather than forfeit the titles to Vincent and Dutch, MJF has opted to take on the challengers by himself. While others in his situation may enlist the aid of another friend to stand in his corner, the champion has said time and time again that he’s a scumbag with very few friends. Unless he decides to shell out big money to hire some backup (which he’s done a number of times in the past), even the self-proclaimed Devil will have trouble contending with sadistic individuals who also happen to be former champions. 

Another dream match taking place at WrestleDream is one of those matches where many would likely say, “Yeah right. In your dreams.” That’s because the legendary Chris Jericho is teaming up with his long-time rival Kenny Omega and Kota Ibushi in order to face Don Callis’ new set of cronies. But as the old saying goes, the enemy of my enemy is my friend. Since Callis has managed to make some high-profile enemies in recent history by stabbing everyone that he supposedly cares about in the back, he’s lucky that he has incredible talent such as Konosukle Takeshita, Sammy Guevara, and Will Ospreay backing him up. Will Jericho’s hunger for revenge on his former friend or the Golden Lovers’ undying devotion to one another be enough to overcome excrement incarnate in Callis and his goons? It will certainly be fun to tune in to find out since some of the most dynamic wrestlers in the entire world are set to collide in this deeply personal contest. 

And we can’t discuss dreams without mentioning Eddie Kingston. The no-nonsense brawler has been having the year of his dreams professionally. After winning the New Japan Strong Openweight Championship and living out a life-long dream of his by competing in the revered G1 Tournament, the “Mad King” settled a long-standing rivalry with Claudio Castagnoli by defeating him for the Ring of Honor World Championship in a grueling Title vs. Title Match. But now that he’s a double champion, Kingston has twice as many competitors gunning for him and his gold, starting with one of the most feared and respected men in the entire business: Katsuyori Shibata. “The Wrestler” currently holds the Ring of Honor Pure Championship, but apparently he wants to be draped in gold these days. With both of Kingston’s championships on the line, a win for Shibata would certainly make that dream a reality. Although, Kingston probably isn’t planning to go down without a fight. Based on the differing styles of these fighters, we’re sure to have an incredibly interesting match on our hands this Sunday when these two face off.
