Not every AEW star managed to escape WrestleDream unscathed.
AEW presented the inaugural WrestleDream show from Seattle, Washington on October 1st as the company honoured the life and legacy of Japanese legend, Antonio Inoki.
Competing on the show for the AEW Tag Team Championship were two teams that have previously held the IWGP Tag Team Championship in Inoki’s New Japan Pro Wrestling – FTR and Aussie Open.
FTR has held the title since beating The Gunns for the gold back in April on Dynamite and their reign continued in Seattle as Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler defeated Mark Davis and Kyle Fletcher for the second time in their careers.
However, taking to social media Mark Davis of Aussie Open revealed that he had been injured during the bout as his wrist was apparently broken:
“sometimes you win em, sometimes you snap your wrist”
sometimes you win em, sometimes you snap your wrist

What else happened at AEW WrestleDream?
The biggest news coming out of WrestleDream was the debut of Adam Copeland, who has been known for decades as Edge in WWE.
Copeland appeared at the end of the night after his long-time tag team partner Christian Cage had defeated Darby Allin to retain his TNT Championship. Allin was betrayed by Nick Wayne who helped Cage retain his title and as both men and Luchasaurus continued the attack on Allin and his partner Sting, Adam Copeland appeared to a raucous ovation.
Copeland looked like he might side with his old running buddy but instead turned the chair on Luchasaurus and Nick Wayne while Cage escaped to fight another day.
