Tommy Dreamer On Who He Thinks Is The Elite’s Wild Card

ECW original Tommy Dreamer recently made an appearance on an episode of Busted Open Radio, where he talked about a number of topics including AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door.

Dreamer said, “I have a lot of interest basically on the main event with Swerve [Strickland] and Will Ospreay. That kind of had me sold. Everything else, especially with forbidden doors, it’s a hard pay-per-view to try to introduce to a larger fan base. We have our AEW fans. I love them because when somebody’s music hits from a new Japan or another company, they know who that person is. For me, actually I do follow New Japan, I know these people, but then some people, I’m like, ‘Wait, how and who?’ Then you have the announcers have to explain it … It’s hard to set up some of these matches because a lot of people don’t know who some of these guys are that are walking out.”

On Ricochet potentially being The Elite’s wild card:

“I don’t know [his] contract status, but I know everyone was going crazy about Ricochet. If you’re going to tell me I could have Ricochet versus, not that I would vault him to the top, but a Ricochet-Will Ospreay match or a Ricochet-Swerve Strickland match, that’s a thing. I don’t know when his contract officially expires.”
