‘Crazy’ Backstage Reaction To IWGP US Title Match At Forbidden Door AEW/NJPW

The backstage reaction to the IWGP US Championship match at AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door has been revealed.

During the crossover event, Will Ospreay defended his NJPW gold against AEW’s Orange Cassidy. Ospreay picked up the victory after almost 17 minutes of back-and-forth action, with Cassidy notably kicking out of Ospreay’s Hidden Blade elbow.

Many fans have argued that the bout was their match of the night. Per a Wrestling Observer Daily Update, people backstage were ‘going crazy with the quality’ of the bout.

Former champion Juice Robinson was shown watching the bout with the physical title belt. Robinson was forced to relinquish his championship ahead of Dominion, as he was unable to compete at the event.

After the contest, Katsuyori Shibata confronted Ospreay, fighting him off before befriending Orange Cassidy.

In the main event of Forbidden Door, Jon Moxley defeated Hiroshi Tanahashi to win the interim AEW World Championship. Clarification has emerged on Jon Moxley’s status, following concerns that he had suffered a concussion.
