AEW continues to make waves in the world of professional wrestling thanks to the company’s willingness to work with other companies. It is a fact that AEW’s partnership with NJPW has led to a lot of development for both companies. With Forbidden Door set to take place this Sunday, it appears the event or more or less a sellout.
AEW held their Forbidden Door pay-per-view last year, and it was definitely a massive success in every way. It was a financial success and also featured several excellent matches, from the top to the bottom of the card.
The Scotiabank Centre in Toronto will host the second Forbidden Door event on June 25th and will be a great way for Tony Khan to showcase his partnership with NJPW. The pre-sale tickets sold out like hotcakes, which set the tone for the whole event.
According to WrestleTix, the arena is near capacity, but more seats were made available as well. As of 12:30 pm ET, 13,185 tickets have been sold for the event. The current capacity for the arena is 13,537 fans, so there are 352 tickets still available for the show at this point.
WrestleTix also reported that 200 more seats opened up on the hard cam side when section 117 of the arena was opened up in full. The first Forbidden Door outing was a massive hit with fans from both companies, and many wrestlers would like a chance to be on the second card as well. We’ll have to see how the event will turn out.
