Tony Khan Reveals Future Plans For Forbidden Door

Tony Khan Reveals Future Plans For Forbidden Door AEW

Following the success of the AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door pay-per-view event, many fans have been wondering if the event will become a yearly tradition from here on out.

AEW president Tony Khan made his weekly appearance on Busted Open Radio, where he was asked about the possibility of Forbidden Door being a yearly event going forward.

He said:

“Well, it’s a great question. I think we’ve had a great response to everything we did last week. It was a huge week for us. The Forbidden Door Pay-per-view was a big success. We estimate about 127,000 buys right now. With replay buys trickling in, it was ahead of all projections and expectations. I absolutely would love to do it again and I think we will do it again going forward.”

Khan then continued on, also touting the success of last week’s Blood and Guts special episode of AEW Dynamite.

He said:

“This is our second year doing Blood and Guts. It’s also the second year in a row that Blood and Guts Wednesday Night Dynamite was the number one show on cable on a Wednesday. I look forward to a third Blood and Guts match in the future. Certainly the debut of the Royal Rampage, the inaugural event, was a big success for us. It got great attention for Rampage and really did something I wanted, which was to put a lot of spotlight on Rampage and get a great result for that show.

“All these events were really successful for us. So I do think this is something we could do going forward, having a big summer with a Forbidden Door, Blood and Guts, and following up with a Royal Rampage. Hopefully people will look forward to it next year.”

Brody King was the inaugural winner of the Royal Rampage, and faced off against Jon Moxley for the interim AEW World Championship on last night’s (July 6) AEW Dynamite.
