AEW and New Japan Pro Wrestling have descended upon the Windy City this weekend with Double or Nothing coming from the United Center in Chicago. This joint company event will take place on Sunday, June 26th, 2022, and the main show will begin at 8 p.m. ET on Bleacher Report.
AEW and NJPW began an official partnership this year and on the April 20th episode of Dynamite, it was officially announced that the two companies would be holding a late-June ppv. The “Forbidden Door” name is in reference to wrestlers of one company stepping into another company and that’s what we’ve gotten in recent weeks with New Japan stars invading AEW.
This is a 12-match card with the headliner being Jon Moxley facing Hiroshi Tanahashi for the interim AEW World Championship. The match came to be after AEW Champion CM Punk went on the shelf with a broken foot. The winner of this match will face Punk for the undisputed championship at a later date. We’ll also be treated to a Fatal Four-Way match for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship as well as a Fatal Four-Way to crown the inaugural AEW All-Atlantic Champion.
