A top star has informed AEW fans about what match will likely be in the main event of the WrestleDream PPV.
For the second straight AEW pay-per-view event, the AEW World Champion Maxwell Jacob Friedman (MJF) will not defend his championship on the show. In two of AEW’s five pay-per-view shows this year, MJF’s title defense has been in the main event spot.
While MJF is on the card, he is defending the ROH Tag Team Titles in a handicap match (without injured tag team partner Adam Cole) against The Righteous. With no AEW World Title match on the show, it has left fans wondering what match might go on last.
At AEW All Out last month, the main event was Jon Moxley beating Orange Cassidy to win the International Title. Moxley isn’t even on the WrestleDream card due to a concussion while Cassidy is in a tag team match with Hook as his partner.
It appears as though the 2 out of 3 Falls match for the TNT Championship with Christian Cage defending against Darby Allin might be the main event. That’s according to Allin, who is from Seattle, which is where WrestleDream is taking place. Allin made these comments AEW Countdown to WrestleDream special.
“I’ve waited to be in the main event of a show for so long. My whole entire life, I never felt good enough. There was always a voice in the back of my head saying, Y’ou shouldn’t be here. You don’t deserve any of this.’ But like I said, the only time I felt validated was when I was TNT champion. Then you got a guy like Christian Cage. He’s got the one thing that made me feel like I meant in this whole entire world.”
“You haven’t seen s**t until you wrestle Darby in Seattle. At WrestleDream, in the main event, you are fighting someone that you’ve never seen before.”
Another top AEW star from the state of Washington is Bryan Danielson, who recently said he didn’t want to be in the main event of another AEW PPV. Danielson was in the main event of the first three AEW PPVs this year: Losing an Ironman match to MJF at Revolution, losing a 4-on-4 Anarchy in the Arena match at Double or Nothing and then beating Kazuchika Okada in the Forbidden Door main event.
