Tony Khan: Zack Sabre Jr.’s mystery opponent will surprise many

AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door pay-per-view bio could bring a lot of excitement. What fans are most interested in is who will be the opponent of Zack Sabre Jr. Although Danielson Bryan was supposed to be his opponent, due to injury he had to leave the place to someone else.

“Talk about the one-two punch of injuries, losing CM Punk and Bryan Danielson, two of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time,” AEW President Tony Khan said during the Forbidden Door media call, as quoted by Wrestling Inc.

“Bryan Danielson is so valuable to the company, backstage and of course on-screen. And most importantly on-screen, fans were so excited for Forbidden Door, him wrestling Zack Sabre Jr. “I think the anticipation was there, we had been hoping that we could really start building it up and Bryan was really starting to feel well after ‘Anarchy in the Arena’.

He didn’t have any doubts whatsoever, I just didn’t want to take a chance … So I shut him down, and I think it was the right thing to do”.

Tony Khan expects it to be a great night, but it will be especially interesting to find out who Sabre Jr.'

s opponent is. “It was one of those also perfect situations because rarely do the stars align where you have a mystery opponent and a chance to build up a moment like this,” Khan said. “It’s very fitting to go back to the United Center, where we’ve only had one show, and it was a great moment, and I know for sure we’re going to have that great moment.

I think there’s going to be a lot of great moments to expect on the show, but one thing I know is this great moment when we introduce Zack Sabre Jr.’s mystery opponent. I’m really excited about it and I wish it had happened under different circumstances”.
