New Japan Pro Wrestling star Hiroshi Tanahashi is all set to make his AEW debut. The star is slated for an appearance on the June 22 edition of AEW Dynamite. He is going to face off against a formidable face in AEW.
Tanahashi will lock horns with AEW superstar Jon Moxley. Tony Khan has apparently prevented the two from locking horns several times, but it’s finally happening. A lot will be at stake at Forbidden Door next Sunday, as the two stars will fight for the AEW Interim World Championship.
Jon Moxley and Tanahashi have plans that extend beyond their match, however. The two will also fight beside each other to face off against Chris Jericho and Lance Archer. With the limited schedule given, it’s not exactly clear whether the two will co-exist.
AEW Dynamite’s upcoming episode has some big names on the card. Will Ospreay & Aussie Open will be fighting fan favorite Orange Cassidy & Roppongi Vic. Malakai Black will battle Penta Oscuro in a 1v1 match.
This week’s AEW Dynamite will set up for the Forbidden Door event in a big way. However, there are fights on the card with stars trying to settle their score against each other. Penta Oscuro and Black have history, but their all-qualifier match will decide who gets to have the last laugh. Here’s the card for the upcoming edition of AEW Dynamite.
