AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door featured an interpromotional pay-per-view from the United Center in Chicago, Ill. Forbidden Door presale tickets sold out instantly, drawing a million-dollar gate, though over 2,000 tickets currently remain after general sales. Viewership flatlined during the home stretch. The June 15, 2022 broadcast of AEW Dynamite garnered 761,000 viewers, Dynamite’s lowest viewership in over a year, while AEW Rampage that same week drew its second-lowest number ever with just 331,000.

AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door has been riddled with injuries with several key talents unable to compete after originally being advertised.

Dynamite bounced back this past week with 878,000 viewers, though this marks the lowest viewership for a go-home show since Full Gear 2020.

  • AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door Results | June 26, 2022Le Sex Gods and Suzuki def. Kingston, Umino and Yuta

    Wheeler Yuta instantly worked this crowd into a froth with several consecutive German suplexes as they gave him a standing ovation.

    With their win, the Jericho Appreciation Society got the man advantage during the Blood and Guts match.

    FTR def. United Empire and Roppongi Vice

    The hits seemed to keep on coming as Dax Harwood went to the back with a dislocated shoulder, however he returned later in the the match to a huge pop with a taped shoulder.

    Dax Harwood’s injury had to be an angle as he deadlifted a 300 lb. Jeff Cob with German suplexes.

    Dax Harwood almost singlehandedly took this from a somewhat middling match to an excellent match. He shrewdly used the real-life injury storyline across AEW and pro wrestling to convince these fans he was out.

    PAC def. Malakai Black, Miro and Clark Connors

    Clark Connors was featured a surprising amount, namely spearing Miro through a table, which sent this crowd into a frenzy. Fans even started chanting “let’s go Clark!”

    PAC should be a more than formidable AEW All Atlantic champion, but with Miro also in this match, he was the wrong choice to win.

    Sting, Darby Allin, Shingo Takagi def. Bullet Club

    In addition to their vintage Bullet Club gear, The Young Bucks brought back the fringes on their boots for this match and it’s been too long.

    Sting’s entrance was his wildest yet as he jumped off the entrance platform onto the field. Sting is a legend and a madman.

    This match, with overly dramatic back scratches from The Young Bucks and Chase Owens, is designed to get Jim Cornette to go on a 40-minute rant about how pro wrestling is dead.

    During a heated Sting comeback, Chase Owens twisted Sting’s nipples, obviously to no avail.

    Following this match, it was announced that tickets for AEW Grand Slam will go on sale on July 22, 2022.

    Thunder Rosa def. Toni Storm

    Toni Storm continued to double down with her polarizing hip attack, however Thunder Rosa got her hands up in taking it.

    There was a very good nearfall where Toni Storm kicked out of the Thunder Driver.

    Thunder Rosa won this match with a Final Reckoning, a nod to her mentor Dustin Rhodes.

    Will Ospreay def. Orange Cassidy

    Jim Ross was on the call for this match, and of all the matches on this card, I felt like a match like this was the least-likely to be called by J.R.

    This was an excellent, straight-up pro wrestling match until Orange Cassidy hilariously performed Will Ospreay’s signature head kicks as lazy kicks. The camera got a great shot of Will Ospreay glaring at Cassidy as if to say “are you kidding me?”

    The best spot in this match came when Orange Cassidy tried to play possum and Ospreay missed an initial dive, only to quickly hit a follow-up shooting star.

    There was a great nearfall from Paul Turner where his hand was literally quarters of inches off the ground.

    This match was my pick for match of the night, and from this point on, it’s going to be tough to prove me wrong.

    After the match, there was a surprise appearance by none other than Katsuyori Shibata.

    Claudio Castagnoli def. Zach Sabre Jr.

    The camera stayed on the fans for Claudio Castagnoli’s (Cesaro’s) entrance and, as expected, they went crazy for it.

    Excalibur announced over 16,500 fans in attendance, which is slightly higher than to the 15,323 listed by WrestleTix as of yesterday.

    “Claudio section” doesn’t have the same ring to it. For a variety of reasons I think “Claudio corner” sounds better.

    Claudio attempted a spin, but stopped after just five rotations to sell his bicep.

    The crowd began to show signs of fatigue throughout this match, but they got them back toward the end.

    Jay White def. Adam Cole, Okada and Adam Page

    Kazuchika Okada received one of the biggest pops of the night for his entrance, while poor Jay White’s pop was nonexistent.

    Fans rose to a standing ovation before the match even begun.

    This wouldn’t be a Jay White match if he didn’t roll out to begin it, and Adam Cole followed suit.

    Conspicuous by his absence in this match was famed NJPW referee Red Shoes Unno.

    IWGP Heavyweight Championship Fatal 4-Way as a charcuterie item: Mozzarella cheese (6.5/10)

    There was a very awkward finish to this match that might have been a result of a legit Adam Cole injury. Jay White looked very upset despite having his hand raised. The hits just keep coming for AEW.

    Jon Moxley def. Hiroshi Tanahashi

    By the main event, I noticed that there were no spectacular entrances on this pay-per-view show in a large arena.

    Surprisingly, Tanahashi, not Jon Moxley, had the home field advantage. Some fans could actually be hear booing Moxley. There were split chants throughout.

    This was the first match all night to feature blood as Jon Moxley bled profusely toward the end.

    Hiroshi Tanahashi kicked out at one, similar to Kenny Omega at AEW Revolution 2019, and it got a similarly great reaction. Fans actually began turning on Moxley as he reigned in elbow strikes.

    This pay-per-view ended similar to Dynamite with a lot of random, erratic brawling. Claudio gave the fans a proper swing, with 20 revolutions.
