Former WWE Stars Open the Forbidden Door as AEW Gives Them the Opportunity to Shine
AEW x NJPW: Forbidden Door was a classic, matching the hype of
expectations that had hit incredibly high levels given the names and matches involved.
And in a funny twist, it couldn't have happened without WWE.
In a sense, at least. While the well-named special event given the
collaborations between promotions didn't have anything to do with WWE,
that company's pervasive presence hung over the entire night's proceedings.
That's a good thing, and a nod to AEW for, like the Forbidden Door itself,
creating major opportunities in the pro wrestling industry for former WWE Superstars.
Those stars shined in a massive way all night. Chris Jericho got his spotlight multiple times.
