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, Forbidden Door 3 is set to be a terrific show. However, the show will not be held at Athur Ashe Stadium.

The inaugural Forbidden Door event unfolded at the United Center in Chicago, featuring a headline bout between Jon Moxley and Hiroshi Tanahashi competing for the interim AEW World Championship.

In the preceding year’s iteration held at the ScotiaBank Arena in Toronto, fans were treated to a historic main event clash between Bryan Danielson and Kazuchika Okada, marking their first-ever encounter in a monumental matchup. The venue was initially supposed to be Arthur Ash Stadium as well.

While speaking on his Beyond The Bell podcast, Andrew Zarian revealed that Forbidden Door 3 will no longer take place at Arthur Ashe Stadium. However, the change is for positive reasons. While there is speculation that the involvement of numerous CMLL talents may prompt AEW to choose a venue closer to Mexico for a larger fan turnout, Zarian did not report this as the reason for the venue change.


AEW’s plans for Forbidden Door 3 have also been revealed. We will have to wait and see how the event will turn out in the end, especially after they decide on a new venue for the show.
