AEW President Tony Khan has opened up on what the future holds for Forbidden Door.
Back in April of the current year, AEW President Tony Khan joined NJPW President Takami Ohbari to give the ground-breaking announcement of the arrival of the Forbidden Door, the first-ever joint show between both companies.
The event took place at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois and became one of the best pro wrestling shows of the year so far.
Now, almost two weeks after the historic event, Tony Khan has joined ‘Busted Open Radio’ to discuss Forbidden Door’s huge success and to claim that he would love to do it again.
When asked about this, Khan said:
“Well, it’s a great question. I think we’ve had a great response to everything we did last week. It was a huge week for us. The Forbidden Door Pay-per-view was a big success. We estimate about 127,000 buys right now. With replay buys trickling in, it was ahead of all projections and expectations. I absolutely would love to do it again and I think we will do it again going forward.” (H/T WrestlingNews.co)
Khan also commented on his thoughts about last week’s AEW Dynamite: Blood & Guts special and the debut of the Royal Rampage, as well as the impact they had on national television.
“This is our second year doing Blood and Guts. It’s also the second year in a row that Blood and Guts Wednesday Night Dynamite was the number one show on cable on a Wednesday. I look forward to a third Blood and Guts match in the future.
Certainly the debut of the Royal Rampage, the inaugural event, was a big success for us. It got great attention for Rampage and really did something I wanted, which was to put a lot of spotlight on Rampage and get a great result for that show.” (H/T WrestlingNews.co)
