Following his win at NJPW Collision in Philadelphia on April 16, Takahashi shared his thoughts after the bout and expressed his interest in being at AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door 2.

"Also, since I'm in America, let me tell you this. I couldn't go [last year]. But there will be [a Forbidden Door show] this year, right? Maybe in June, Forbidden Door. I'd love to be there," Takahashi said.

Takahashi also commented on the All Star Junior Festival USA, which will be held on August 19 at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He noted that they couldn't book foreign talent for the inaugural Junior Festival due to the costs of travel.

"I never thought that the All Star Junior Festival that we did in Japan would be held here in Philadelphia. I'm sure Rocky did a great job with this. I heard Rocky said he wanted to do it after watching the [first show]. I didn't think it would be held here in Philadelphia. I'm so excited...We couldn't invite foreign players in Japan. Why couldn't we invite them? Transportation costs. It costs a lot. This is actually a tough problem.But you can do it here in America, you don't have to worry about it. I'm in. Rocky-san, of course I'll go. Even though we're on opposing teams, we shook hands," Takahashi said.

Aaron Henare recently stated that he won't be a part of AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door 2. Check out his comments here.
