We just finished watching the AEW Forbidden Door 2023 live stream, and full results are below. Tony Khan announced that Adam Cole vs Tom Lawlor (which was set up by MJF) is off, because Cole has been taken down by an "illness." Oh, and Tetsuya Naito is Darby and Sting's partner against Le Suzuki Gods.
AEW and NJPW are set to repeat history with a supercard chock full of exciting matches. We have 14 matches, with an announced main event of The American Dragon Bryan Danielson vs. Kazuchika Okada. Also, Kenny Omega is defending the IWGP United States Championship against Will Ospreay.
One lingering question: will ex-NJPW star Kota Ibushi debut tonight? Omega's former manager Don Callis promised to give Ospreay some protection at Forbidden Door on Dynamite, so wouldn't it make sense for a surprise ally to help Omega?
Elsewhere on the card, the night will open with MJF's AEW World Championship title defense over Hiroshi Tanahashi. Also, Sanada should steam over Jungle Boy in his IWGP World Heavyweight Championship defense, and set up Jack Perry's heel turn on his new best friend Hook, who's set to corner him. Toni Storm is also likely to retain her title against Willow Nightingale.
Expect chaos and a heel-win in the Blackpool Combat Club (with Konosuke Takeshita and Shota Umino) vs The Elite (with Eddie Kingston and Tomohiro Ishii) match, because this overall feud is likely not ending until a Blood & Guts match. Plus, The Elite's Kenny Omega isn't even in that match; the win can't come yet.
Lastly, the hardest-to-call match is Orange Cassidy defending his AEW International Championship against Zack Sabre Jr., Katsuyori Shibata and Daniel Garcia. Sabre Jr. could easily win to defend it at All In, since Tony Khan would want him on the U.K. card. But ZSJ doesn't need this belt to be on that card, as the match between him and Danielson that should have been on last year's Forbidden Door is too easy to set up.
Oh, and yes, this is the first time The Elite and CM Punk will share a building since the Brawl Out fight last fall. Should be interesting.
