Report: Forbidden Door Match Planned Months In Advance

Tony Khan has been planning a Forbidden Door match for many months

AEW’s Forbidden Door PPV is fast approaching, though as of this writing only two matches have been announced for the show which takes place in just two weeks time, as Kazuchika Okada will battle Bryan Danielson and Kenny Omega will defend the IWGP United States Championship against Will Ospreay. 

The latter of those two matches, per Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, has been in plans for several months at this point. 

“To me, if I’m doing this, it’s Omega beats Ospreay in Canada and then Ospreay beats Omega in England. That’s how I would do it, but he (Tony Khan) might think that’s too many matches and just wants to do one of them and that one’s in Canada, which was always the plan. The plan was always for Forbidden Door to be Omega and Ospreay…long before the Tokyo Dome. It was Tokyo Dome and Forbidden Door that was always the plan. And then this one, before there was ever an All In at Wembley Stadium, but with All In at Wembley Stadium, obviously everything changes. It's going to be an interesting, interesting period for AEW, that's for sure.”

No matches have been announced as of yet for AEW’s All In event in London, though a rubber match between Omega and Ospreay could well be a big match that AEW pulls out for the show.
