New Matches Set For AEW X NJPW Forbidden Door

Four big matches set for AEW X NJPW Forbidden Door

Several new matches were added to the upcoming AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door card on Wednesday's episode of AEW Dynamite. 

In a major moment on the show, Kazuchika Okada debuted in AEW and made the save for Hangman Page while The Anxious Millenial Cowboy was involved in a confrontation with IWGP World Heavyweight Champion Jay White and Adam Cole. It was then announced that White will defend his title against Okada, Page, and Cole in a Four-Way at the June 26 pay-per-view.

Elsewhere on Dynamite, Bryan Danielson revealed he was not cleared to compete at Forbidden Door. Instead, Zack Sabre Jr. will face the newest member of Blackpool Combat Club, who remains a mystery for the time being. It was also announced that The Young Bucks will rejoin Bullet Club for one night only and team with Hikuleo and El Phantasmo to take on the Dudes with Attitudes - the team of Sting, Darby Allin, Shingo Takagi, and Hiromu Takahashi. 

On the Buy-In, Max Caster, Billy Gunn, Austin Gunn, and Colten Gunn will face NJPW LA Dojo talents Alex Coughlin, Yuya Uemura, Kevin Knight, and The DKC. 

Major matches already announced for Forbidden Door include an Interim AEW World Title match between Jon Moxley and Hiroshi Tanahashi, a Winners Take All Match between ROH World Tag Team Champions FTR, IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Champions Jeff Cobb and Great-O-Khan, and Roppongi Vice, and an AEW Women's World Title match pitting champion Thunder Rosa against Toni Storm.
