NJPW Champion Says He Might ‘Start Looking’ At AEW Ahead Of Forbidden Door AEW/NJPW

Ahead of AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door, NJPW STRONG Openweight Champion Gabe Kidd says he might “start looking” at AEW.

Gabe Kidd of the Bullet Club War Dogs has been vocal of his disdain for All Elite Wrestling in the past.

With AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door on the horizon, Kidd may start to change his tune and look at Tony Khan’s promotion.

Speaking with the WRESTHINGS podcast, Gabe Kidd stated that he may start looking at AEW with Forbidden Door approaching. He said:

“Nobody’s got more fighting spirit than me,”

“That’s what it’s about. It’s about constant improvement and not getting caught up in shit. I don’t care what’s going on in WWE or AEW right now because I’m not there.”

“Maybe I’ll start looking at AEW because Forbidden Door is coming up, but I’ll slap a few of them around and then I’ll see if I want to do it full-time. It’s a big commitment.”

“So if I enjoy it, maybe I’ll go there. But if not, then I’ll stick around and enjoy beating up Japanese people some more.”

Gabe Kidd is scheduled to challenge Kaito Kiyomiya for the GHC Heavyweight Championship at Pro Wrestling NOAH’s Grand Ship event this Sunday, June 16.

Kidd currently does not have a match scheduled for AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door at the time of this writing.
