Bryan Danielson and Kazuchika Okada have reacted to the announcement of their match for AEW X NJPW Forbidden Door 2023 later this month.
Stars from the two companies will once again face off on June 25 at the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Canada.
A dream match has now been confirmed for the show, with AEW sharing a graphic for Bryan Danielson vs Kazuchika Okada on social media.
AEW shared a tweet with the following caption:
It’s official! For the first time ever @rainmakerXokada vs. @bryandanielson
Sunday, June 25th at #ForbiddenDoor LIVE on PPV from the @ScotiaBankArena in Toronto, Canada! #AEWxNJPW
Danielson replied to this, tweeting:
Believing that the winner of their bout will be able to call themselves the world’s best wrestler, the former IWGP World Heavyweight Champion wrote:
Let’s see who is the REAL best in the world at Forbidden Door.
It has also been confirmed that Kenny Omega and Will Ospreay will have a rematch at Forbidden Door, with Omega’s IWGP US Championship on the line.
Omega notably defeated Ospreay for the title in January at Wrestle Kingdom 17, in a bout which many fans believe will be a match of the year contender at the end of 2022.
A ‘forbidden door’ match has been announced for the June 7 edition of Dynamite, which you can read more about right here.
