Tony Khan: AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door Drew Over $1 Million Gate

AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door continues to be a success, according to Tony Khan.

On June 30, AEW and NJPW held the third annual Forbidden Door pay-per-view. The show emanated from UBS Arena in Elmont, New York.

Speaking at the AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door post-show media scrum, Tony Khan highlighted the success of the event.

“What a huge success this pay-per-view has been,” Tony Khan said. “This is our third Forbidden Door. What a great partnership. Tonight was not only a great pay-per-view, also a great live event here. Like we said, there 11,000 fans here at UBS Arena paid, and over $1 million live gate. Really, really special. Third-straight year with over 11,000 fans and over a million dollar live gate, which is pretty cool.”

When asked about the pay-per-view buys, Khan said, “I won’t know the cable and satellite numbers for a while. I’m only projecting off digital buys, but we did fantastic tonight. I expect another great result based on the digital buys, which were excellent.”
