Over the weekend the stars of AEW and NJPW faced off at the Forbidden Door pay-per-view which took place live from the United Center in Chicago. The card featured some interesting bouts, and there was a lot of speculation regarding how it would do heading into the show.

The event seems to have been well received by fans as the feedback has been mostly positive. It also seems that Forbidden Door was a financial success as AEW President Tony Khan revealed on Twitter that the show did $1 million in ticket sales, and $5 million dollars in pay-per-view buys.

“Thank you to everyone, especially wrestling fans around the world, who made last Sunday’s #ForbiddenDoor event a hit,
with >$1 million in ticket sales+ >$5 million on ppv! We’re back for Wednesday Night #AEWDynamite on @TBSNetwork @ 8pm ET/7pm CT/8pm PT #BloodAndGuts TOMORROW!”

Another Forbidden Door pay-per-view has yet to be confirmed, but it’s probably safe to say that AEW and NJPW will be looking to do another show like this at some point down the road. Stay tuned for updates.
