  • Chris Jericho
  • Don Callis
  • Kenny Omega

While there’s obviously no footage from the fight yet, Sega did upload a teaser trailer for the event. It features a number of the wrestlers who will be taking part providing narration over footage from past matches and Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name.

It is unknown if the wrestlers will show up in costumes based on the Yakuza and Like a Dragon series and characters. However, such things have happened before. For example, at New Japan Pro Wrestling Wrestle Kingdom 17, Kenny Omega dressed as Sephiroth.

Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name is available for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC. The AEW Like a Dragon Gaiden Street Fight with wrestlers to promote the Yakuza spin-off will appear during AEW Dynamite on November 15, 2023 on TBS.
