Yes, another one. With just over twenty four hours to go before AEW’s Forbidden Door event, you would think most of the card would be set. AEW is ready to take on the stars of New Japan in a series of matches, which should make for a rather fun night. However, even with so little time left, another change has been made, though this time it wasn’t WWE’s decision to make.
AEW has announced that Hiromu Takahashi has a fever and is not allowed to travel to the United States for his match at Forbidden Door. Takahashi was scheduled to team with Sting, Darby Allin and Shingo Takagi against the Young Bucks, Hikuleo and El Phantasmo, but the match will now be a six man tag with Hikuleo also sitting out. There is no word on if Takahashi will wrestle for AEW in the future to make up for this show.

Opinion: I’m not one to jump to conclusions about a show being cursed, but are we sure about this one? Forbidden Door has seen all kinds of injuries and it is a shame to see something that had so much promise be taken down so many pegs. I’m sure what we’ll get is good, but I have no idea how they are going to feel like they are at full strength after so many people are on the injured list.
What does the change mean? Which match are you most lookingi forward to? Let us know in the comments below.
