The rumors are true! In an announcement made on AEW: Dynamite, All Elite Wrestling and New Japan Pro Wrestling have joined forces as the two companies present AEW x NJPW: Forbidden Door Live from the United Center on June 26. 

This historic news comes as no surprise to professional wrestling fans. The proposition was rumored for a couple weeks that a “super show” of sorts was in the works between AEW and NJPW. With the likes of Minoru Suzuki and Jay White, among others, making sporadic appearances on AEW and ROH television, the writing was on the wall for something this large. 

With the announcement that Forbidden Door will emanate from the United Center, there is no doubt that Chicago the Mecca of professional wrestling. The UC has already been a part of AEW history when CM Punk made his triumphant return to the sport last August. After such a moment like that, there is no surprise this event will be in Chicago. 

Plenty of dream matches are in store for Forbidden Door. For the at home viewer, AEW x NJPW: Forbidden Door will be available on PPV on Bleacher Report Live in the United States and Canada. Everywhere else, the event will broadcast on Fite TV. For those that want to see this historic event in person, tickets will go on sale on Friday, May 6, at 11 a.m. EDT/10 a.m. CDT at and Ticketmaster. I will for sure be in attendance, as should you! Stay tuned for more updates leading up to this monumental event!
