The show got a hostile reception from the crowd, as almost 5,723 fans were present in the Climate Pledge Arena. While the show was not fully sold out, with over 1800 tickets going unsold, the arena cheered heavily throughout the show and made it look more lively.
Another huge match that delivered up to its hype featured a trio tag match between The Golden Lovers and Chris Jericho taking on Konosuke Takeshita, Will Ospreay, and Sammy Guevara. Each of the six men proved why they were worth a million bucks. The match itself was brutal and displayed a lot of spots in between.

The Young Bucks also secured a future shot at the AEW Tag Team titles in a match filled with a lot of thrilling spots. ‘Hangman’ Adam Page battled it out with his old rival Swerve Strickland in a losing effort. Swerve was heavily cheered throughout the match, being the hometown hero. The Main event was set between TNT Champion Christian Cage and Darby Allin in a two-out-of-three-falls match.
Adam ‘Edge’ Copeland makes his AEW Debut at WrestleDream
Christian Cage annihilated Darby throughout the match with the involvement of different weapons and furniture from the ringside. Despite being heavily cheered against Cage, Darby Allin came up short against the TNT Champion. By the final fall of the match, the wooden surface of the ring was exposed. Christian had nothing but destruction on his mind. He attempted to attack Sting with the chair just when the lights went off.
A man was shown driving to the arena in a fancy sports car. As it turned out to be, it was the Rated R Superstar Edge. The former WWE Superstar was introduced to the AEW universe as Adam Copeland, which is his real name. He entered the ring and joined forces with Sting instead of aligning himself with his old friend Christian.
With Edge’s monumental debut, AEW has once again attracted a lot of fans to their product. With Copeland on their side, they might benefit a lot, and we may see many iconic dream matches from Edge. He is currently set to make his in-ring debut against Luchasauras on AEW Dynamite on October 10.
