Cross promotion. While AEW and WWE get most of the attention in the wrestling world, there are a lot of other promotions out there worth a look. You have probably heard of several of them but they could all use some extra recognition. That is the case with one major international promotion, but now it is going to be getting some major attention on a huge stage.
This week on AEW Dynamite, Adam Cole announced a special pay per view event on June 26 at the United Center in Chicago. The event will be called Forbidden Door, which will include New Japan Pro Wrestling stars meeting AEW stars. New Japan wrestlers have appeared in AEW before but never for an entire show. There is no word on who will be appearing on the card and no matches have been announced.
Opinion: I don’t think this is the biggest surprise but it should at least make for a good show. The show is the kind of thing that the AEW fans are going to eat up and now they will be getting the kind of show they have wanted. There should be some awesome matches on the show as New Japan seems likely to send their biggest stars. If nothing else, this will be the biggest New Japan show in American history and that is a good idea.
What do you think of the announcement? What do you want on the card? Let us know in the comments below.
