AEW WrestleDream won’t just be a one-off event according to Tony Khan.
WrestleDream was held by AEW to honour the life and legacy of Japanese legend Antonio Inoki and by the time the show was over it was another Hall of Fame star that had stolen the show.
The night’s main event saw Christian Cage defend his TNT Title in a brutal two-out-of-three falls match against Darby Allin. Cage ultimately escaped with his title after Nick Wayne turned on Allin, smashing him in the face with the TNT Title belt.
After the bout, Cage and Wayne continued the beatdown which brought out Sting but his presence was nullified by Luchasaurus. The lights went out and a video played showing someone getting in a car and driving to the arena. When the lights returned, a very familiar song played and the man known for decades as Edge announced himself as All Elite.
Now known by his real name of Adam Copeland, the Rated-R Superstar looked to be reuniting with his old tag team partner but instead turned a chair on Luchasaurus and Wayne while Cage ran away.
Tony Khan confirms AEW WrestleDream to return
At the post-show press conference, Tony Khan indicated that WrestleDream is now an annual event and will be part of AEW’s calendar in 2024 – much like All In at Wembley Stadium is set to return as well. Khan would not be drawn on a location for the event in 2024 and no date has officially been set for it.
