Star Ruled Out Of AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door 2023 NJPW/AEW

With the second AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door event set to take place on June 25 in Toronto, many fans have been wondering what cross-promotional matches could take place at this year’s event.

One name who may not end up being a part of the show is NJPW star and United Empire member Aaron Henare, who spoke on the Shining Wizards podcast, revealing that he won’t be a part of the show.

He said:

“With all of those [Forbidden Door, All In, All Together Again], especially all the events around the world, it’s a wrestlers market right now. All the fans have been locked down with the same people in every different area for the last three years. There is a demand for wrestlers reaching out and going everywhere.

“Although, there is one thing more important to me in June than Forbidden Door, I’ve actually requested to not be in Japan or American for that one, I’ll be going back to New Zealand for something quite special. I won’t spoil it yet.

“It probably doesn’t mean much to anyone outside of New Zealand. The WWE fans who are following Roman (Reigns) and the Usos right now will probably understand it. It’s important. It’s going to make life hell in Japan, but it’s important.

“If they need me for Forbidden Door, I’m going to be asking for a big fat guarantee to leave New Zealand. All Out and All Together, I’d definitely love to be part of those.”
