A historic event happens on Sunday as AEW and New Japan Pro Wrestling join forces to present Forbidden Door from the United Center in Chicago.
The main event is for the interim AEW Heavyweight Championship as former titlist Jon Moxley takes on former multi-time IWGP Heavyweight titlist and NJPW legend Hiroshi Tanahashi.
Initially, CM Punk, the AEW Heavyweight Champion, was set to face Tanahashi. But Punk suffered an injury that required surgery and was forced to pull out. Instead of having to vacate the belt, AEW CEO and owner Tony Khan created an interim title with the winner facing Punk in the future.
Also on the show, IWGP Heavyweight Champion Jay White defends his belt against Kazuchika Okada, Hangman Page, and Adam Cole, and Will Ospreay puts his IWGP United States title against Orange Cassidy.
Every AEW pay-per-view has delivered up to this point. Add in New Japan, which presents some of the best wrestling in the world, and AEW/NJPW Forbidden Door 2022 should be a show to remember.
