Throughout his legendary career, Owen Hart had many battles with Jushin Thunder Liger, another fellow wrestling legend. While speaking at the Double Or Nothing post-show media scrum, Tony Khan commented on the Owen Hart Cup Tournament before bringing up the idea of having Liger make an appearance sometime during it.

"I’m not sure about this, I’ve had some nice talks, I’m hopeful and I spoke to New Japan Pro-Wrestling, I think it would be great and they think it would great. One of Owen Hart’s great opponents, a rival, they’ve competed, both former IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champions, wouldn’t it be amazing if we could get Jushin Thunder Liger over to Canada. He’s competed against Owen Hart and competed in Canada and competed in Stampede Wrestling. That would be something really neat. To coincide with AEW in Canada and Forbidden Door door and our partnership with New Japan, and most importantly the Owen Hart Cup tournament, I think it would be great if Jushin Thunder Liger can come over. I’m optimistic that he’ll be able to."

Jushin Thunder Liger retired from in-ring competition back in January 2020.
