Cole got a concussion early in the four way match. Something happened later that made White realise this and he basically did a shoot pin on Cole. That was Cole's second concussion within 30 days, so he will likely be out for a while.

Tony Khan tweeted that Forbidden Door drew more than a million dolllar gate and more than $5 million in PPV buys. Not sure how accurate any of that is but it sounds good.

Guys like Suzuki and Shibata got superstar reactions that dwarfed any I’ve heard in any company over the last few years. And by the time you got to Okada and Tabahashi they might as well have been Austin and Rock. Some matches were more epic than others. Ospreay vs. Cassidy was shockingly great. Moxley vs. Tanahashi was OK but didn’t do that much for me considering it was the main event. There seemed to be a botch and premature ending in the 4-way with White pinning Cole, or if it was booked that way it was just awful and a flat ending to a great match. The long-awaited arrival of Caatagnoli was the best possible way to make fans not feel disappointed by Danielson’s injury. The show was just a home run, and the commentary team of Kelly, Excalibur, and Taz was the perfect combination of entertainment while treating the product like a legit sporting event and giving the background on these guys that was needed. JR should’ve sat this whole one out because it got noticeably worse when he joined.  But just a tremendous show that some are calling the best PPV since WM 17. 

I really enjoyed Kellys work, he is a wonderful announcer

I thought he was great, and if you told me that he and Taz had been a team for 20 years I would’ve believed you. Speaking of, is Taz the best fucking color man in the history of the business or what?  You have Heenan and Ventura of course, but they played completely different roles. But Taz is just a shoot color man who not only is the best at what he does in wrestling, he’s better in his role than 98% of MLB or NFL color commentators. He was always good, but now he’s just the GOAT.

You can tell by their professionalism at this show (& ROH/NJPW MSG show) that NJPW takes wrestling seriously & representing themselves correctly regardless
