A new match featuring Jon Moxley has been made official for the AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door 2024 event following the latest happenings at NJPW. It was back at the NJPW Windy City Riot show that Moxley defeated Tetsuya Naito to claim the IWGP Heavyweight Championship and since then he’s been defending the title.

Now a rematch between the two will be happening at AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door 2024. It was at this weekend’s Dominion that featured the highly anticipated Lumberjack match for the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship between EVIL and the reigning champion Jon Moxley. Before the match began, EVIL and his HOUSE OF TORTURE allies (Dick Togo, Ren Narita, Yoshinobu Kanemaru, and Yujiro Takahashi) targeted Bushiroad CEO Takaaki Kidani with a spray-painted assault.
