Tony Khan would like to see Forbidden Door return.
On Sunday, June 26, AEW and New Japan Pro-Wrestling will host the first-ever Forbidden Door event. However, the event has been altered by injuries and more, and because of that, Tony Khan says he's already begun looking at the possibility of AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door 2. Tony Khan also says that the first Forbidden Door event has already been such a great financial success and because of that, it's a good reason to plan for a sequel.
“Yes, absolutely. I’ve thought a lot about it. We’ve already discussed the possibility of Forbidden Door 2 based on the success, already, that we’ve had from this event selling well over $1 million in tickets and now, because we’ve opened up some seats with the cool stage, I think we can get more fans in. There are a few seats left in Chicago. It’s been so successful of an event that we have to plan to do it again. A sequel is to be expected and it would be great to get some of those wrestlers back, but who knows, next year...you can always have people get injured,” Tony said on a media call prior to Forbidden Door.
Tony Khan has also said that more matches will be added to the Buy-In of Forbidden Door on tonight's episode of AEW Rampage. Fans can check out the full card for the event here.
