AEW will be holding their Forbidden Door PPV Event in partnership with NJPW next Sunday, June 26 from the United Center in Chicago, Illinois and with the PPV just around the corner, the card is beginning to take shape. The main event of Forbidden Door will see Jon Moxley battle Hiroshi Tanahashi to crown the Interim AEW World Champion due to the reigning AEW World Champion “The Best In The World” CM Punk being out of action after suffering an injury. The Forbidden Door Event will also see the IWGP United States Champion Will Ospreay defend his IWGP United States Championship against AEW’s Orange Cassidy, but that was reportedly not the original plan for the brand-new IWGP United States Champion.
All Elite Wrestling Star and one of the most successful Mexican-born wrestlers of all time Andrade El Idolo recently made an appearance on Hugo Savinovich’s Lucha Libre Online show and revealed that IWGP United States Champion Will Ospreay was originally set to battle him at Forbidden Door and he was set to fly to Japan to shoot an angle in order to set the match up, but things changed and the match will no longer be taking place.
AEW’s Andrade also revealed during the show that AAA has not been booking him on shows like they said they would and due to the relationship NJPW has with CMLL, he can’t work for NJPW and shows that NJPW is involved in such as the Forbidden Door Event because AAA and NJPW don’t have the relationship NJPW has with CMLL. Andrade El Idolo then revealed that he was booked to compete at AAA’s TripleMania XXX: Tijuana show, but the booking was canceled.
More information will be provided on the issues surrounding Andrade, AAA, NJPW, CMLL, AEW and several other talents connected to these promotions as soon as it is made available.

Andrade says he was supposed to face Will Ospreay on Forbidden Door, was schedule to go to Japan to set it up, and then it was stopped.— luchablog (@luchablog) June 17, 2022
Andrade's ultimately upset because he can't work with NJPW because he's working AAA, but AAA is actually not booking him when they said he would so he's just not working— luchablog (@luchablog) June 17, 2022
