AEW x NJPW Disagreement Claims Blasted By Star

Tony Khan AEW

Forbidden Door has not yet been announced for 2024 but it seems claims that the show has led to disagreements between AEW and NJPW are not true.

In 2022, the first supershow held by AEW and NJPW was held in the United Center in Chicago, Illinois. The main event of that show saw Jon Moxley defeat Hiroshi Tanahashi to win the Interim AEW World Title after the reigning champion CM Punk was taken out with an injury.

The 2023 edition of the event was held in the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Canada with Bryan Danielson defeating Kazuchika Okada in the main event.

Confusion Over AEW/NJPW Forbidden Door

On the Beyond the Bell podcast, Andrew Zarian reported that 2024’s Forbidden Door is no longer being planned for Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York.

Fightful also reported that the reason for the switch was that New Japan Pro Wrestling did not want to split the costs of the event with AEW for running that venue.

That led Rocky Romero, who has wrestled frequently for AEW and works in the office for New Japan Pro Wrestling, to take to social media to simply state that those claims were not true.

There had been no confirmation that AEW and NJPW had considered the stadium with the original report that they were looking at the stadium as a venue for the show coming from Zarian himself earlier in 2024.

AEW Dynamite will see The Young Bucks air backstage footage of AEW All In that will shine a light on what really happened between CM Punk and Jack Perry that led to Punk being fired by the company.
