So the final Card is:

>Jericho, Guevara, & Suzuki vs Kingston, Yuta, Umino
>Bullet Club (Hikuleo, El Phantasmo, Young Bucks) vs LIJ (Shingo and Hiromu), Darby, & Sting
>ZSJ vs ??? (an opponent hand picked by Danielson)
>AEW Women's World Title: Thunder Rosa (c) vs Toni Storm
>IWGP US Heavyweight Title: Will Ospreay (c) vs Orange Cassidy
>AEW All-Atlantic Title: Miro vs PAC vs Malakai Black vs Ishii
>IWGP Heavyweight Tag & ROH World Tag Titles: Roppongi Vice (Trent & Rocky) vs FTR vs United Empire (Great O'Khan & Jeff Cobb)
>IWGP World Heavyweight Title: Jay White(c) vs Okada vs Cole vs Hangman
>Interim AEW World Title: Jon Moxley vs Hiroshi Tanahashi

Not quite as dreamy as imagined with all the injuries that occurred, and still kinda feels like some cop-out multi-mans were thrown in, but overall looks good.

I really hope that Danielson's handpicked opponent for Zack Sabre Jr. is Cesaro or someone that could match up to him in the ring.

9 overall, 1 Buy-In and 8 main card.

Still seems like too many matches, maybe that's just my opinion and at least it isn't 13 again.

I might end up skipping this. I'm not excited for it in the slightest. There's no match on here that I'm dying to see. No match-up has me curious about who will win. There's no interesting storyline that I'm waiting to see the payoff for. I'm sure the matches will be great but that's just not enough.

>Jericho, Guevara, & Suzuki vs Kingston, Yuta, Umino
Shooter & Yooter as Mox's young boy team is based as fuck, and Eddie wanting to murder Jericho is also excellent. The Suzuki's interactions with the face team will be the highlight though.
>Bullet Club (Hikuleo, El Phantasmo, Young Bucks) vs LIJ (Shingo and Hiromu), Darby, & Sting
Way more interested in seeing Shingo & Hiromu vs Darby & Sting then the 4 of them on one team but this should still be fun.
>ZSJ vs ??? (an opponent hand picked by Danielson)
Danielson said it's somebody that can match Zack technically and a new member of BCC so I feel like it has to be Claudio, and Claudio vs current ZSJ sounds fantastic.
>AEW Women's World Title: Thunder Rosa (c) vs Toni Storm
Obligatory women's title match. Not even really a "Forbidden Door" match outside of Toni having worked Stardom years ago. Taya just challenged Rosa and I imagine they would've done the match here if not for the CMLL/AAA fuckery, but get a current Stardom talent or a TJPW talent or something. People would get into Rosa vs any of the joshi recently working Dark.
>IWGP US Heavyweight Title: Will Ospreay (c) vs Orange Cassidy
Should have a super hot crowd no matter what, quality depends on how Will approaches the match but OC will keep the match down to a decent pace probably.
>AEW All-Atlantic Title: Miro vs PAC vs Malakai Black vs Ishii
Sleeper MOTN, holy fuck what a group. Any of these guys getting months to workhorse the belt around the world would be the shit, but it SHOULD be Miro.
>IWGP Heavyweight Tag & ROH World Tag Titles: Roppongi Vice (Trent & Rocky) vs FTR vs United Empire (Great O'Khan & Jeff Cobb)
Sounds like a great time. Rocky is getting pinned so FTR can hold three sets of tag belts without beating Empire.
>IWGP World Heavyweight Title: Jay White(c) vs Okada vs Cole vs Hangman
Will be a letdown after the All-Atlantic 4-Way. Gives me Okada vs Styles vs Elgin vibes, everybody just wanted Okada vs Hangman but we're getting this instead. White's great this year mind you but Okada vs Page would've been excellent. Cole will drag this match down because he's honestly been having one of his worst ever in-ring years.
>Interim AEW World Title: Jon Moxley vs Hiroshi Tanahashi
Mox has been wanting this match for years so despite the circumstance I think these two will deliver big time. It will definitely be better than Punk vs Tana would've. I also don't really know who goes over since I could totally see them putting it on Tana right before the G1 so they can go right back into Tana vs Punk once Punk is healthy.

I hope Forbidden Door does a shitty buyrate and it makes Tony realize that if he ever does a cross promotional PPV ever again it needs to have a compelling storyline behind it, as opposed to being a bunch of random meaningless "dream matches" that only appeal to a handful of hardcore puro nerds. I'm only watching in case MJF shows up to wreak havoc tbh.

Honestly it's a very solid card, just not the blow away one that I and others expected.

I think it'll be a tonne of fun and I'm hoping for some entertaining stuff between matches (Danhausen and Yano interaction is a must) but yeah, the combination of injuries and having to weave NJPW into some ongoing AEW stories has taken away some of the shine. Definitely does leave a lot of potential for the next one and some NJPW events.

A lot of these matches would benefit from dropping a few guys or splitting the match up. I guess having a bunch of tag matches makes it feel more like a, bad, new Japan show. But there’s no excuse for 2 four ways.

Really only looking forward to the mainevent and the surprise debut.

This and Regal, a few days before the show, talking about how big a deal a NJPW guy winning the AEW title would be so all the pressure is on Mox goes to show how shtity the build of this show has been. They totally coasted on the names of the companies and nothing else.

We should also mention NJPW's old insistence that they can't build the next show until the current one is done, meaning they didn't start building Forbidden Door until Dominion was done, which left like 2 weeks. Sure they sent over Cobb/O'Khan early, then had Hangman name-drop Okada, but that turned out awkward because they made ppl want Hanger/Okada and ended up having Jay win the belt.

Build and injuries aside, the card isn't bad at all. It's not entirely ideal but they've pulled a solid card out of the ashes.

Though I really hope Tony takes a step back afterwards and realizes that he needs to figure out how to not make PPV builds massive messes going forward.

Alexander was my first thought and Gresham my second but he said he only trusts one man, and when he says trust I feel like it has to be somebody he knows personally, which points to Claudio.

But if it's Shibata that would be legitimately incredible. 0.01% chance of happening because they wouldn't put Shibata out there as a replacement without much notice but damn the pop would blow the roof off the venue.

Gresham would make sense for the BCC but he is the ROH World Champion so I don't know if they'd have him lose to Zack Sabre Jr, which they have faced each other before in Beyond, unless they'd set up a title match down the road. Cesaro would make the most sense but it could be someone entirely different.

I think an argument should be made in favour of this crossover show. American fans not really knowing who these NJPW guys are isn't really a bad thing. This could be just the start of something. AEW, Impact and indies have already helped bring Suzuki and Ishii to an american audience where now they get big pops and most AEW audience know who they are.

I think now that AEW has already gone in with this Forbidden Door show it would be smart for them to bring in NJPW guys every few months or so to acclimatize the audience with them as they learn who is who so next years PPV goes over even better.

That's my glass half full way of looking at it. Gotta start somewhere. It wont take long for people to see a guy like Tanahashi and know that he is important.

Very interesting how the black wrestlers booked for this show are all shoved in the buy-in...

New Japan decision maybe?

Oh fuck off, you sad little concern troll.

Were NJPW racist when they booked ACH in BOSJ? When they added Chris Bey to Bullet Club? When Lio Rush got booked frequently on Strong?

Think before you make embarrassing and fallacious claims like this.

Keith Lee/ Swerve are too new of a tag team, and Kanemaru/Despy vs them isn’t really worthy of being ahead of any of the main matches.

Max Caster is way too green to be wrestling NJPW talent.

But you know, it MUST be b/c hurr durr they is racists.

How come Team Taz is not booked then? They're probably better than everyone listed here.

It's kinda neat that Darby & Hiromu will be at least teaming, maybe we'll get a dual sawdust topé spot where they try to outcrazy each other or something

Even if 20 more people get injured by tomorrow, nothing can be more disappointing than Tony thinking it was a great idea to book Will Osprey against OC.

Eh, I dunno. There was no way to avoid booking Will Ospreay, and I'm sure OC will carry him to a good match.

I think Hiromu enjoys wrestling in front of American audiences as he is super over, so his is probably legit.
I'm very suspect of Ishii tho, think about how hard that dude works through all sorts of injuries all the time like it's nothing. Nothing short of a truck hitting him would stop him and force him to actually miss a match. He also publicly said he wasn't into the idea of a 4 way match I think in the post match interview after he won the spot. Maybe he thought it wasn't worth the long ass flight/didn't feel he was getting paid enough/the spot was worth his while to make the trek. idk. It's a weird one.

Wow. tickets have dropped to $4. Now that people know what the card is they can't even give the tickets away.

Should be interesting what the buy rate is.

AEW Dynamite (and every other Rampage) is still good TV but the build to this show has just been rushed to fuck and all over the place. Injuries and sickness you can't really account for, but the way you got the IWGP World Title match put together was just complete nonsense. A lot of stuff I care about in the company is stuff that won't matter until after this PPV too (La Faccion Ingobernable, Statlander vs Cargill, Wardlow getting the TNT Title, Christian vs Jungle Boy, Blood & Guts). The matches will probably still be great across the board, but it comes across as a simple exhibition show with a few title matches. ROH War of the Worlds in the early years-level stuff.

Double or Nothing was a little wishy-washy on its build but it was still good overall. I guess only getting 1 month to build a PPV featuring a lot of outside guys while juggling as many plotlines as they already normally do just broke Tony. He needs to hire a creative team; proven bookers that he screens rather than just anybody, but he needs help.

The show sold out based on the promise of AEW x NJPW alone, but the low post-market pricing tells you how little people care about the card that scalpers are sitting on too much stock. It's not a flop for AEW but it's a sign that the build was weak and the card is not what people expected/wanted for the most part (this is half in part to injuries plaguing both companies at the last minute to be fair).

Yes i'm sure wrestlers would really hate performing in front of a large, hot crowd and potentially gaining new fans in the US. Not to mention the huge payday which will come from performing on a big PPV.

Honestly, some of you guys live in a different world, it's literally insane

Its not out of the realm of possibility some of them saw Danielson fall through their faulty set, Osprey get stuck with the joke wrestler and the hack owner book 2 four ways and decided they were being set up to fail.

it's not beyond the realms of possibility that Tomohiro Ishii is posting in the LOLAEW thread on /wooo/, and making life decisions based on the opinions in that thread,which he shares, but it is probably a bit unlikely

oh and btw, NJPW guys have been wrestling to near dead silence for almost 2 yrs now and everyone hates it, which is why more and more of them have ben coming to America in the past 6-12 months since USA opened back up for full uninhibited crowds. Because all wrestlers live for the rush of the pop. That's just a fact. Japanese wrestlers can't get that over in Japan right now but they sure as hell can get that in America and get to experience full uninhibited audience reactions once again instead of the clap crowd bullshit.

All credit to tk. Awful looking card built up by some of the worst television they’ve ever produced. Created the absolute perfect storm of low expectations and their fanatics desperate to prove everyone wrong.
