What to watch for on AEW/NJPW Forbidden Door

An interim AEW World Champion will be crowned as Jon Moxley will take on Hiroshi Tanahashi in the main event. This match came about after AEW World Champion CM Punk went down with a broken foot following his title victory at Double or Nothing last month. Both Moxley and Tanahashi earned their way into the match and the winner will go on to meet punk for the undisputed AEW World title at a later date.

There will also be two big-time Fatal Four-Way matches on the show, one for the IWPG World Heavyweight Championship and one to crown an inaugural AEW All-Atlantic Champion. Not cleared to wrestle due to injury, Bryan Danielson has assigned a mystery opponent to take his place against Zack Sabre Jr. We’ll also have a trios match to see who will get the advantage at AEW’s Blood and Guts special next Wednesday.
