Tony Khan: I Believe This Could Be The Best Forbidden Door Yet

AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door is one of the biggest pay-per-views of the year for All Elite Wrestling. Heading into the third edition of the show, Tony Khan said he believes this one could be the best one yet.

Speaking with Chris Mueller of Bleacher Report, Khan expressed how he enjoys getting to do shows like Forbidden Door because he likes working with NJPW, STARDOM, and CMLL.

“I really enjoy working with CMLL and I expect we’re going to have a really long, fruitful, positive business relationship,” Khan said. “Salvador [Lutteroth III] and the team at CMLL have been great to work with. I’ve dreamed of working with them for years. I’m a really big fan of CMLL. When Salvador and a lot of the lucha libre wrestlers come in, I start talking to them about how, when I was in college, I would watch CMLL every week and I was a big fan of Mistico and so many other great wrestlers like Ultimo Guerrero, Rey Bucanero, Tarzan Boy, they were a great trio, and Blue Panther of course.

“To be able to work with them now and with Mistico, who is an inspiration and one of the greatest stars in wrestling, it’s really cool. The people at CMLL have been great to work with.”

Khan also praised STARDOM and spoke highly of AEW;s relationship with them. He went on to share his belief that this year’s Forbidden Door could be the best one yet.

“The folks at Stardom have come in and been a great partnership,” Khan said. “I think it’s the kind of partnership I’ve wanted to have with them for a long time. And with the changes in management, we’ve been able to do that.

“Under president [Hiroshi] Tanahashi at New Japan Pro-Wrestling, that relationship has only gotten stronger and better. And I believe this could be the best Forbidden Door yet, which is really saying something.”

WrestleZone will have coverage of AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door as it airs on June 30.
