Tony Khan Comments On AEW X NJPW: Forbidden Door

The historic AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door PPV was announced on Dynamite

Tony Khan’s ‘huge announcement’ was revealed on the April 20 edition of AEW: Dynamite, with Khan and NJPW President Takami Ohbari confirming that the first NJPW x AEW PPV will occur on June 26, when Forbidden Door hits Chicago’s United Center.

Shortly after the historic announcement was made, Khan and Ohbari commented on the partnership between the two companies in an official press release:

“As the world continues to reopen, I’m making sure the Forbidden Door follows suit and we can finally give fans the dream events they’ve always imagined,” said Tony Khan. “The United Center was home to one of AEW’s biggest events of all time, The First Dance, where CM Punk made his return to wrestling after a seven-year hiatus. This summer, fans of AEW and NJPW can expect the unexpected during this extraordinary, first-of-its-kind pay-per-view between our two incredible companies.”

“As we have done for more than 50 years, the power of pro-wrestling can energise people by fulfilling their dreams,” said Takami Ohbari. “Now, it’s quite an important mission for us, the pro-wrestling industry as a whole. We are not only opening this door. We will show you NJPW’s genuine Strong-Style beyond the Forbidden Door.”
