The buy-in is live on Facebook. Your announcers are Excalibur and Taz joined by NJPW’s Kevin Kelly. 

Our first match is Hirooki Goto and YOSHI-HASHI vs. QT Marshall and Aaron Solo. Poor Goto has to fly all the way from Japan to wrestle a couple of jobbers in a glorified Dark match.

When the fans are popping huge for a YOSHI-HASHI hot tag, you know this crowd is amped up to see any Japanese wrestlers live.

Goto predictably pins Solo in a decent, short match.

We have both American and Japanese ring announcers, which is a nice touch.

The next Dark match is Lance Archer, representing NJPW in this case, vs. Nick Comorato. Comorato is a big guy with a good look and has been around a long time now, not sure why AEW never gives him a push. Just too crowded a rister I guess to develop anyone.

I’ve always liked Comorato, like you said he has a great look and I think they could do something with him.

Archer wins a somewhat competitive match. NJPW improves to 2-0 over the AEW job squad.

We have our first competitive match as El Desperado and Yoshinobu Kanemura take on Keith Lee and Swerve Strickland. NJPW really should go 3-0 here though given their history as a team.

Damn, that was a really good match and the crowd loved it. Lee and Swerve get the win. I thought they would lose and further their break-up story.

After the match, Powerhouse Hobbs and Ricky Starks cut a promo on them from the skyboxes.

Last pre-show match is Yuyu Uemura, DKC, Alex Coughlin, and Kevin Knight vs. Billy Gunn, the Gunn kids, and Max Caster. Caster cuts his usual hilarious rap that involves the dojo kids washing Shibata’s balls and watching hentai.

Danhausen makes fun of the Ass Boys and they run off to make this a 4-on-2, at least to start.

Billy Gunn and Caster win what became a handicap match in pretty easy fashion against the dojo trainees with Gunn getting a monster pop for his offense at the end, including the Fame-asser.

The pre-show ends AEW - 2, NJPW - 2.

The main show begins with Jericho, Guevara, and Suzuki vs. Kingston, Yuta, and Umino. Jericho and Suzuki both got their sing-along entrances. Crowd is on fire before anyone even locks up.

Jericho pins Umino with the Judas Effect in a really great opener that the fans made better. The Kingston-Suzuki confrontation was treated like Hogan-Andre and was awesome.

Bobby Cruise is your English ring announcer and Caprice Coleman joins the announce team for this ROH vs. IWGP Tag title match. It’s FTR vs. Jeff Cobb and Great-O-Khan vs. Roppongi Vice, winner take all.

FTR are now ROH, IWGP, and AAA Tag champions. Decent match but nothing that special. They did the deal where Dax got injured and left and then returned later for a hot tag.

It’s a 4-way to crown the first AEW All-Atlantic champion: PAC, Miro, Malakai Black, and Clark Connors (subbing for Tomohiro Ishii)

I caught the second half of this and thought it was ok, are they doing this to send FTR to NJPW for awhile or do you think they are going to drop the IWGP titles in short order?

I doubt they’ll hold it long but I hope they do at least one tour of Japan.

It was an 8-man and now we’re down to a 6-man due to injury. Dudes With Attitudes are back and now they’re Sting, Darby, and Shingo Takagi.  Representing NJPW and Bullet Club are the Young Bucks and El Phantasmo.  Sting dives off the top of the entrance onto Bullet Club to start the match with a big “Holy shit” chant.

Backstage, Jericho tells Umino he did a great job tonight and he respects him, and then throws a fireball in his face. AEW has done a tremendous job building this rivalry from a throw-away moment in Japan years ago.

Stuff came up and it was getting late. I’ll finish the show tonight hopefully.

I know how you feel. "What are you doing today?" "Watching wrestling." "What else?" "It's a five hour show." THE LOOK.

These should probably be moved to Saturdays like UFC. They end too late to use the normal Sunday night timeslot.

Finally finished watching this today. It was great. Given the final advertised card, this was everything they promised it would be. And that crowd was outstanding. Bonus points for Minoru Suzuki. Whatever "it" is, he has it. No promos, no muscles, but absolutely compelling to watch. Even Kevin Kelly's fingernails on a chalkboard voice couldn't bring this show down from a 10/10.

I won’t go through every other match, but I finished the show last night and it exceeded all expectations. The crowd was amazing. 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.

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.

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
