Following the success of Forbidden Door, AEW President Tony Khan says he’s willing to discuss the possibility of a joint show with WWE.
On the 26th of June, AEW and New Japan Pro Wrestling put on their joint supershow in the United Center in Chicago showcasing the best of both companies.
The main event of Forbidden Door saw Jon Moxley defeat NJPW’s Ace Hiroshi Tanahashi to become the Interim AEW World Champion. Elsewhere on the show, Will Ospreay retained his IWGP United States Championship against Orange Cassidy and FTR became seven-star as they captured the IWGP Tag Team Championship to go with their ROH and AAA gold.
Over the past year, wrestling fans have also seen stars from AEW and IMPACT Wrestling crossover and Tony Khan cemented his place in wrestling history when he added Ring of Honor to his business interests by buying the promotion.
Speaking on The Ringer’s Masked Man Show, Tony Khan discussed the possibility of walking through the most forbidden of doors – working with WWE:
“I’m not sure if that’s gonna happen [AEW and WWE doing a joint show]. But, I would be open to talking about that type of thing. It’s not crazy but it’s a bold prediction.”
Khan’s comments come after several AEW stars appeared on WWE television as Bryan Danielson, Chris Jericho, and Paul Wight all paid tribute to John Cena.
