Top NJPW Star Wants To Work Forbidden Door II

A top talent wants to be involved at AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door

A top star in New Japan Pro-Wrestling has his eyes on competing at the promotion's joint Forbidden Door pay-per-view with All Elite Wrestling later this year. The second Forbidden Door show is set to take place on June 25 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Speaking with NJPW, Hiromu Takahashi stated his desire to compete at the event on June 25.

"Also, since I'm in America, let me tell you this. I couldn't go [last year]. But there will be [a Forbidden Door show] this year, right? Maybe in June, Forbidden Door. I'd love to be there," said Takahashi.

Hiromu was set to team with Sting, Darby Allin, and Los Ingobernables de Japon stablemate Shingo Takagi against Bullet Club at the first Forbidden Door pay-per-view in June 2022 but he was pulled from the show because of a fever. The Dudes with Attitudes picked up the win without Hiromu, defeating El Phantasmo and The Young Bucks. 

Hiromu Takahashi is the current IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion in his fifth reign with the belt. He will look to add gold to his collection on May 3 when he challenges former LIJ faction mate SANADA for the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship at Wrestling Dontaku.
