AEWxNJPW: Forbidden Door has come and gone, but already fans and pundits are wondering what comes next for the partnership between the two promotions. In particular, how did New Japan feel about the show, and, most importantly, will there be a Forbidden Door 2?
In a Tokyo Sports write-up of Forbidden Door, NJPW President Takami Ohbari discussed the event, revealing he too came away from the show feeling positive, despite some of the limitations that befell AEW and New Japan before the show.
“There are still fighters and cards I would like to see,” Ohbari said. “I would like to see a continuation of this event.”
That said, Ohbari was clear that the next time the two promotions cross over, he’d like to see it happen in his home country.
“I think there is a need to see this event in Japan,” Ohbari said. “The 50th anniversary year is a good opportunity to make that happen. I think there are fighters [from AEW] who would like to compete in front of Japanese fans.”
