For the second annual crossover PPV between All Elite Wrestling and New Japan Pro-Wrestling, the Forbidden Door card is once again utterly stacked.

In what is being billed as a double main event, the headline attractions of Forbidden Door are Bryan Danielson going up against Kazuchika Okada, and Kenny Omega defending his IWGP United States Championship against Will Ospreay.

Fans have long dreamed of seeing Danielson and Okada lock horns in the middle of the ring, and now we finally get to see this hotly-anticipated dream match as both men look to prove why they're the best professional wrestler in the world.

For Ospreay and Omega, this is a rematch of the pair's stunning Wrestle Kingdom 17 war from the turn of the year. There, the Best Bout Machine defeated the Commonwealth Kingpin to become the new IWGP US Champion. Now, Ospreay has revenge on his mind as he looks to reclaim a title he previously held for 206 days.

Elsewhere, Forbidden Door will also have plenty of other championships on the line, with AEW World Champion MJF defending against the legendary Hiroshi Tanahashi; IWGP World Heavyweight Champion SANADA defending against scrappy underdog 'Jungle Boy' Jack Perry; AEW Women's Champion Toni Storm defending against loveable NJPW Strong Women's Champion Willow Nightingale; and Orange Cassidy putting his AEW International Championship on the line against the underhand Daniel Garcia, cocksure NJPW World Television Champion Zack Sabre Jr., and the veteran ROH Pure Champion Katsuyori Shibata.
