Stipulation Added To AEW X NJPW Forbidden Door Match, Updated Card

The stakes have been raised for AEW X NJPW Forbidden Door, as Jericho Appreciation Society and Blackpool Combat Club have added incentive to pick up the W this Sunday in Chicago.

It was announced on AEW “Rampage” that the victors in the trios match between Eddie Kingston, Wheeler Yuta, & Shota Umino vs. Chris Jericho, Minoru Suzuki, & Sammy Guevara will gain the one-man-advantage in the upcoming Blood & Guts match the following week on AEW Dynamite. Since the double-cage match runs like a WarGames style bout, one team will be granted a 2-on-1 advantage when their team member enters at the first interval.

Kingston and Jericho’s feud has run strong over several months, as the latter embraced his wizard side by first turning on Kingston and then blowing a fireball in his face. This eventually led to an Anarchy in the Arena match at Double or Nothing with the Jericho Appreciation Society getting the win over Kingston, Santana, Ortiz, and The Blackpool Combat Club (Jon Moxley, Bryan Danielson, & Wheeler Yuta).

After that, it was “hair vs. hair” between Ortiz and Jericho, but it was “Le Champion” who ended up on top after nefarious means. The added stipulation to the trios match paints the card a bit differently, as seen below:

* INTERIM AEW WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
Hiroshi Tanahashi vs. Jon Moxley
