With AEW putting on two PPVs over back-to-back weekends in September with AEW All In and AEW All Out, Tony Khan's All Elite Wrestling serves up yet another major event this weekend with AEW WrestleDream.

The first PPV of its kind, Khan created WrestleDream as a way to pay homage to the late, great Antonio Inoki. A Hall of Famer multiple-times over, Inoki passed away at the age of 79 exactly one year to the day of WrestleDream, and the icon left behind a legacy few could ever match.

In terms of WrestleDream, it's a dream match in the main event of the PPV, where Bryan Danielson will take on the NJPW World Television Champion Zack Sabre Jr. A non-title bout, this is a match that many are expecting to be a genuine Match of the Year candidate as the two greatest technical wrestlers on the planet do battle for the first time since 2009.

Elsewhere, there are some major title matches on the WrestleDream card. AEW TBS Champion Kris Statlander defenders her prize against the ever-improving Julia Hart, with Brody King set to be in Hart's corner; FTR are viewed as the best tag team in the world these days, but they'll have a stiff test as Aussie Open come to challenge for Dax and Cash's AEW Tag Team Titles; Eddie Kingston defends both the ROH World Championship and the NJPW STRONG Openweight Championship against the legendary Katsuyori Shibata; Adam Cole's recent ankle injury means MJF will defend the ROH Tag Team Championships on his own in a handicap match against The Righteous; and wily veteran Christian Cage puts his AEW TNT Championship on the line against Darby Allin in a two-out-of-three falls contest.

Away from those title matches, there's still a whole bunch of other intriguing bouts set for AEW WrestleDream. 'Hangman' Adam Page vs. Swerve Strickland could well steal the show, as these two hugely impressive talents look to outdo one another; one of the biggest grudge matches of WrestleDream puts Chris Jericho, Kenny Omega and Kota Ibushi up against Don Callis' family of Sammy Guevara, Will Ospreay and Konosuke Takeshita; and a four-way war between The Young Bucks, The Lucha Bros. The Gunns and the somewhat makeshift team of Hook and Orange Cassidy will crown the new #1 contenders for the AEW Tag Team Championships.

AEW WrestleDream 2023: What other matches are there besides the title defenses?

With six titles on the lines across five matches at AEW WrestleDream, there's still plenty of other action to look forward to at this latest AEW PPV.

Of course, the main event of WrestleDream is expected to be Bryan Danielson vs. Zack Sabre Jr. in a contest that has Match of the Year potential. Whilst ZSJ is the current NJPW World Television Champion, that title won't be on the line here as Sabre and the American Dragon do battle to see who is the very best technical wrestler on the planet.

In other non-title matches, 'Hangman' Adam Page and Swerve Strickland finally get to go head-to-head following a fiery exchange on AEW Dynamite this past Wednesday. Two stars who could legitimately lead AEW for years to come, this is certainly a contest to keep an eye on.

Ever the scumbag, Don Callis has assembled the team of Sammy Guevara, Will Ospreay and Konosuke Takeshita to take on Chris Jericho, Kenny Omega and Kota Ibushi in a six-man match that has the chance to be a show-stealer.

Finally, WrestleDream will feature a four-team match to crown the new #1 contenders for the AEW Tag Team Championships currently held by FTR. That four-way will see The Young Bucks vs. The Lucha Bros. vs. The Gunns vs. Hook & Orange Cassidy.
