Heading into the Sept. 27 Dynamite, we knew there would be an update to one of the matches that had already been announced for AEW’s WrestleDream PPV this Sun., Oct. 1 in Seattle.

That happened when Adam Cole revealed he needs surgery on his ankle, and MJF announced his intention to defend their Ring of Honor Tag titles in a handicap match. But that wasn’t the only change.

AEW also added a singles match between Wheeler Yuta and Ricky Starks. That was set-up with a backstage exchange between the two about what happened after Starks’ Texas Death Match with Yuta’s Blackpool Combat Club teammate Bryan Danielson last Saturday on Collision:

Those additions currently have the line-up for Seattle looking like this:

• Bryan Danielson vs. Zack Sabre Jr.

• FTR (c) vs. Aussie Open for the AEW World Tag Team championship

• MJF (c) vs. The Righteous in a Handicap match for the ROH World Tag titles

• Christian Cage (c) vs. Darby Allin in 2-out-of-3 falls for the TNT championship

• Eddie Kingston (c) vs. Katsuyori Shibata for the ROH World & NJPW Strong Openweight titles

• Kenny Omega, Chris Jericho, & Kota Ibushi vs. Konosuke Takeshita, Sammy Guevara, & Will Ospreay

• Swerve Strickland vs. Hangman Page

• The Young Bucks vs. Lucha Bros vs. The Gunns vs. Orange Cassidy & HOOK for a future AEW tag title shot

• Kris Statlander (c) vs. Julia Hart for the TBS championship

• Ricky Starks vs. Wheeler Yuta

Sound like a good way to spend a few bucks and your Sunday night? If so, WrestleDream starts at 8:00 pm ET, and can be purchased on Bleacher Report (and traditional PPV) in the U.S. & Canada, or in all international markets on Fite.
