AEW Wrestledream Kickoff Time, Crowd Capacity, Theme Song, And More

9 months ago By Sports Desk

Is professional wrestling a sport for dreamers? Antonio Inoki, a wrestling legend, believed so when he established New Japan Pro-Wrestling. AEW, the wrestling promotion, is committed to carrying on its legacy with the first-ever AEW WrestleDream event.

This event pays tribute to the late Antonio Inoki, who passed away on October 1, 2022. AEW President Tony Khan affectionately called him ‘wrestling’s greatest dreamer.’

The announcement of WrestleDream took place during the All In 2023 post-show media gathering on August 27, 2023. It has quietly become one of the most anticipated events of the year.

The event is scheduled to be held at Seattle’s Climate Pledge Arena, the home of the NHL’s Kraken. This fills a gap in the AEW calendar, as there has historically been no major event between All Out in early September and Full Gear in mid-November.

While it hasn’t been confirmed yet if WrestleDream will become an annual tradition, its location makes it fitting to feature hometown hero Bryan Danielson. With Bryan Danielson acknowledging that his full-time wrestling career is winding down, his dream match against Zack Sabre Jr. for the title of the world’s best technical wrestler is expected to be a must-see bout.

Another exciting match will see the unlikely pairing of Chris Jericho and the Golden Lovers, Kenny Omega and Kota Ibushi, taking on The Don Callis Family, consisting of Konosuke Takeshita, recent addition Sammy Guevara, and Will Ospreay.

Several championship matches are also on the card, including a unique one where Eddie Kingston will defend both his current titles against Katsuyori Shibata. A pre-show, possibly themed as Zero Hour, hasn’t been confirmed yet, but it’s worth keeping an eye out for any announcements this week.
