Hiroshi Tanahashi will face Moxley for the Interim AEW World Championship at “Forbidden Door”. Tanahashi had defeated Hirooki Goto at the NJPW “Dominion” Pay-Per-View, to earn the title match.
As noted, the original AEW World Heavyweight Title match was also supposed to involve Tanahashi, however, Punk suffered a foot injury and recently underwent successful surgery, so while he is on the sidelines, AEW will determine an Interim Champion to take his place.
AEW x NJPW “Forbidden Door” is scheduled for Sunday, June 26 from the United Center in Chicago, IL.
