AEW has shared a new promo video for the upcoming Forbidden Door event, featuring Bryan Danielson.
In the video, Danielson passionately discussed the announcement of the AEW x NJPW show, noting that for the last 12 years he’s been yearning to face the top stars of Japan, and that he now doesn’t even have to go over there for his wishes to come true.

Danielson has voiced a desire to return to NJPW on numerous occasions, recently discussing the possibility of a run in this year’s G1 Climax tournament. AEW’s Wheeler Yuta has been announced for this month’s Best of the Super Juniors tournament, fuelling speculation that Danielson could visit Japan for a tour this summer.
Before Danielson signed with AEW in September 2021, WWE was notably in contact with NJPW about a possible partnership, to allow the popular star to compete for the Japanese promotion.
Forbidden Door will air from the United Center in Chicago on June 26.
