AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door The Buy-In Pre-show Match Revealed, Updated Card

AEW has confirmed that there will be a pre-show for Sunday’s Forbidden Door pay-per-view.

The Buy-In pre-show for Forbidden Door will air at 7pm ET on Sunday, and will run for one hour. The pre-show will air for free via Facebook, YouTube and Twitter.

So far AEW has announced just one match for The Buy-In, and that’s Max Caster and The Gunn Club (Billy Gunn, Austin Gunn, Colten Gunn) vs. Team NJPW Dojo (Yuya Uemura, Alex Coughlin, The DKC, Kevin Knight).

AEW still has one Forbidden Door match to announce during tomorrow’s go-home edition of Rampage, so it’s possible that there will be two matches during the pre-show.

The inaugural AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door pay-per-view will air this Sunday from the United Center in Chicago, IL. The Buy-In pre-show will air at 7pm ET, for free via YouTube, Facebook and Twitter. The main card will kick off at 8pm ET via Bleacher Report, the B/R App, InDemand through cable and satellite TV providers, select movie theaters in the United States, in Canada, Sky Deutschland in Germany, NJPW World in Japan, and FITE TV for other international viewers.
