AEW x NJPW: Forbidden Door 2022 will be held on Sunday 26 June at the United Center in Chicago.

The announcement was made on Wednesday’s episode of AEW: Dynamite with AEW president Tony Khan and New Japan president Takami Ohbari on the stage.

New Japan champion wrestlers such as Taiji Ishimori, Tomohiro Ishii and Kota Ibushi have previously wrestled at Madison Square Gardens in New York in the G1 supercard show that was co-produced with American Ring of Honor promotions, but this is the first full-on collaboration between NJPW and AEW.

Here’s all you need to know about the event.

The event will begin at 12am BST (7pm ET) with pay-per-view coverage starting from 1am BST (8pm ET)

Around 23,000 fans are expected to fill the venue.
