All Elite Wrestling returns to Chicago on Sunday night with an international, inter-promotional pay-per-view that also features the stars of New Japan Pro-Wrestling called Forbidden Door.
What initially looked to be a dream card of AEW vs. NJPW matches has faced some considerable setbacks of late, with injuries keeping top-tier talent on the sidelines and a maligned lineup creating more disappointment than intrigue.
However, the powers-that-be in the two companies have still managed to construct what should be a card full of superb in-ring action, headlined by an AEW Interim World Championship match between Jon Moxley and Hiroshi Tanahashi.
AEW/NJPW Forbidden Door (6/26) lineup:
--Buy-In: Max Caster & Gunn Club vs. NJPW Dojo (Yuya Uemura, Alex Coughlin, Kevin Knight, & The DKC)
