Bryan Danielson vs Zack Sabre Jr booked for Forbidden Door

Another match has been confirmed for AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door. During a post match press conference, Zack Sabre Jr challenged AEW’s Bryan Danielson to a match at Forbidden Door. The challenge came after Zack Sabre Jr and his Suzuki-Gun partners fell to the House of Torture at NJPW Dominion 2022.

In the post match press conference, Sabre Jr challenged Danielson to a match at the pay per view on June 26th 2022, in a show where NJPW and AEW stars face off in one of the biggest shows in wrestling history.

After his defeat at the hands of EVIL and company, Zack Sabre Jr claimed that he was the best technical wrestler in the world and wanted Danielson to stop playing golf with the “Blackpool Country Club” and face him at Forbidden Door in Chicago later this month.

“American Dragon. Oh Dragon b******s, Can you take some time out your busy golfing schedule to find out who the best technical wrestler in the world is? I’ll tell you darling, it’s F___ING ME!”

Zack Sabre Jr vs Bryan Danielson is a dream match for both men and fans alike. ZSJ is a long time admirer of the American Dragon, basing his wrestling style on technical wrestlers like Danielson, as well as various other British wrestling legends.

Both men are at the top of their field in regards to technical wrestling. Upon his retirement, the WON award for best technical wrestler was named after Bryan Danielson, due to the amount of consecutive years he held the title for.

Upon his retirement in 2016 (he later came out of retirement and currently wrestles for AEW), only won man won the Bryan Danielson award beside from Danielson. That man is Zack Sabre Jr, a man who carried the torch for technical wrestling across the world in Bryan Danielson’s absence.

Since his return from retirement, Bryan Danielson has retained his award but Zack Sabre Jr didn’t give it up without a fight. He has had one of the best years of his career in 2022, winning the New Japan Cup and challenging Okada for the IWGP Heavyweight title, coming close to finally winning the world championship.

When Bryan Danielson vs Zack Sabre Jr takes place at Forbidden Door, the fans will be treated to an all-time classic technical wrestling match. As long as they are given ample time to showcase their craft, we will be talking about this match one of the greatest matches of all time in both NJPW and AEW.
