AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door 2022

Date:
June 26, 2022
Location:
United Center in Chicago, Illinois

Highlights:

  • Several injuries plagued this card. Adam Cole picked up a concussion in the IWGP title match, so it had to be ended early.
  • CM Punk was unable to defend the AEW World Championship because of a broken foot, forcing the interim title stipulation.
  • Hiromu Takahashi was planned to team with Dudes with Attitude and Hikuleo was scheduled to be on the opposing team, but Takahashi was unable to travel after coming down with a fever, resulting in that match being trimmed down to a trios contest.
  • Tomohiro Ishii had placed in the All-Atlantic Championship match, but an injury saw him replaced by Clark Connors.
  • Bryan Danielson was originally scheduled to face Zack Sabre Jr. Claudio Castagnoli (fka Cesaro) took his place.
