AEW and NJPW combined efforts for the first Forbidden Door event on June 26th, 2022. It appears that Tony Khan’s company and the giant Japanese pro wrestling company will make this a yearly event in June, because they’re running another event.

The Scotiabank Centre in Toronto will host the second Forbidden Door event on June 25th. This will be another big opportunity for Tony Khan’s company to flex his partnership with NJPW.

AEW send out an official press release to confirm the upcoming summer show. You may check that out in the space below.

AEW Announces Massive Six-Show Summer Canadian Tour

— Kicking off with the Return of Forbidden Door in Toronto, AEW Will Host Shows in Three Provinces across June and July —

March 15, 2023 –AEW CEO, GM and Head of Creative Tony Khan today announced that AEW will begin a month-long excursion of Canada starting in June, touring across Ontario, Alberta and Saskatchewan for red-hot shows including “AEW: Dynamite,” “AEW: Rampage,” “AEW House Rules” and the highly anticipated return of the “AEW x New Japan Pro Wrestling: Forbidden Door” PPV.

After selling out the Coca-Cola Coliseum in minutes for AEW’s Toronto debut last October, Scotiabank Centre will play host to the “Forbidden Door” pay-per-view on Sunday, June 25, marking the second iteration of this groundbreaking event that pits the best and brightest talent on the AEW and NJPW rosters against one another. Tickets for “Forbidden Door” go on sale Friday, March 24 at 10 a.m. ET.

From there, AEW’s foray into Canada continues with a number of market debuts and marquee events, including:

• Wednesday, June 28: “AEW: Dynamite” and “AEW: Rampage” live from FirstOntario Centre in Hamilton, Ontario. Tickets go on sale Friday, March 24 at 10 a.m. ET.

“Canada has a rich wrestling heritage, and our debut in Toronto last year served as a special moment in our incredible relationship with fans throughout the country,” said Tony Khan. “Now, we’re not only entering new markets but also paying homage to the history of Canadian wrestling with unique moments like AEW House Rules taking place from the iconic Calgary Stampede. This summer is shaping up to be massive with the return of Forbidden Door, and now Canadian fans in six separate markets will get the chance to witness what AEW has to offer up close and personal.”

We will have to see how the event pans out. The first Forbidden Door outing was a big hit with fans, from both companies, and many wrestlers would like a chance to be on the second card as well.
