Sting and Darby Allin have chosen their partner for their AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door match, and it’s none other than Tetsuya Naito.
Opening tonight’s episode of AEW Collision, Chris Jericho made his way down to the ring and demanded to know who Sting and Allin would be bringing with them to the pay-per-view. After some more goading, Sting and Allin finally came out to address Jericho.
In the ring, Allin said he knows Sammy isn’t out there tonight, but if he shows up to Forbidden Door tomorrow and stands with Jericho and Suzuki, he’s gonna kick his ass… just like their partner kicked Jericho’s ass at the Tokyo Dome.
In a stunning reveal, out came Tetsuya Naito, who had feuded with Jericho over the IWGP Intercontinental Championship between 2018 and 2019, and has a long history with the superstar. After coming down to the ring, Naito stared down Jericho, before Jericho left.
