In recent years, AEW has undergone notable transformations, fostering collaborations with diverse wrestling promotions that have proven beneficial. With AEW’s expanding network of partnerships, it seems that alongside CMLL, STARDOM will also participate in this year’s Forbidden Door pay-per-view.

The debut edition of the Forbidden Door even took place at the United Center in Chicago, showcasing a headline clash between Jon Moxley and Hiroshi Tanahashi, vying for the interim AEW World Championship.

In the previous year’s installment, held at the ScotiaBank Arena in Toronto, fans witnessed a monumental main event showdown featuring Bryan Danielson and Kazuchika Okada, marking their inaugural encounter in a historic matchup.

While speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer reported that there are plans to feature wrestlers from STARDOM and CMLL on the Forbidden Door show in June. This news sheds light on the context behind Tony Khan’s recent tweets regarding Rossy Ogawa, indicating a strong loyalty to STARDOM.


“There will be STARDOM and CMLL wrestlers on the Forbidden Door show when they do that show in June. So he [Taro Okada] came in and that kind of explains, again, when Tony Khan tweeted those tweets about Rossy Ogawa.

Additionally, Meltzer mentioned that STARDOM wrestlers AZM and possibly Mina Shirakawa are expected to appear on the April 5 Ring of Honor pay-per-view.

”It was definite loyalty to STARDOM. I believe on the April 5 Ring of Honor pay-per-view a couple of STARDOM wrestlers are going to be on that show. I think AZM is going to be on that show and maybe Mina Shirakawa.”

This year’s Forbidden Door event is slated for June and is scheduled to be held at Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York City. We will have to wait and see how the event will turn out in the end.
