Konosuke Takeshita Qualifies For TNT Title Ladder Match At AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door

Konosuke Takeshita is going to AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door.

TNT Champion Adam Copeland was forced to relinquish the TNT Championship due to injury, as announced on the May 29 episode of AEW Dynamite. The new champion will be crowned in a Ladder Match at AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door.

Qualifying matches began on the May 31 episode of AEW Rampage. There, Konosuke Takeshita clashed with Penta El Zero Miedo in a hard-fought match. In the end, Takeshita emerged victorious with a series of stiff blows.

Here’s how the match broke down, courtesy of our play-by-play coverage:

Penta rallies and sends Takeshita to the mat with a takedown. He keeps rolling with a flurry of offense and dives onto Takeshita at ringside. Takeshita fires back with a wheelbarrow suplex. Penta rallies again with a destroyer on the apron.

Takeshita responds with a Blue Thunder Bomb for a two-count. Takeshita sends Penta into the ropes, blasts him with a forearm and scores the win with a knee strike.
