Tony Khan promised huge forbidden door signing going into this week’s AEW Dynamite. After it was all but confirmed that the free agent arrival would be Keith Lee, fans were confused about why Khan would have used the phrase, ‘Forbidden Door,’ which specifically came from New Japan Pro Wrestling and describes wrestlers from one company appearing for another.

In his haste to hype the show, Khan realized that fans weren’t buying the idea that a free agent could be a ‘Forbidden Door’ wrestler. Khan quickly scrambled to find a New Japan star to make things right. The decision to sign the Bullet Club member didn’t come until just days before the show.

Tony described the issue on Twitter. The AEW president said he wanted to make right by his promise and got the deal done. Khan said it was a direct response to fan feedback.

“I didn’t secure @JayWhiteNZ until Sunday. I realized after the fact that Friday night I butchered my own definition of Forbidden Door in hyping tonight. I heard the fans’ feedback, & wanted to ensure that tonight was a special #AEWDynamite for all.


Thank you everyone who watched!”

Tony Khan isn’t afraid to admit that he made a mistake with his choice of words. Khan went above and beyond to correct that blunder. AEW fans seem to be satisfied with the way things went on a hugely hyped Dynamite.
