All Elite Wrestling (AEW) and New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) are set to captivate wrestling fans once again with this year's installment of the Forbidden Door pay-per-view event. Scheduled for June 30, the action-packed evening will unfold at the UBS Arena in Long Island, New York, promising a night of high-stakes and thrilling matchups.

As tradition holds, the Forbidden Door event showcases some of the finest talents from both AEW and NJPW. Among them is none other than Zack Sabre Jr., universally acclaimed as the best technical wrestler in the world today.

Sabre Jr.' s participation has become a staple at these events, adding a layer of technical prowess and intense competition.

Sabre Jr.' s Past Challenges

In previous years, Sabre Jr. has faced challenging bouts at Forbidden Door.

In 2022, he was bested by Claudio Castagnoli during Castagnoli's debut, a match that still resonates with fans for its sheer intensity and skill. The following year, Sabre Jr. competed valiantly in a four-way match for the AEW International Championship but did not claim victory.

This year, Zack Sabre Jr. is poised to make a significant comeback. On the June 8 episode of AEW Collision, he made a resolute announcement: he is returning to Forbidden Door with a clear objective. Sabre Jr. aims to address the unresolved tensions with Orange Cassidy, the wrestler who triumphed in last year’s four-way confrontation.

Orange Cassidy, a fan-favorite known for his laid-back style contrasted by his unexpected ferocity in the ring, finds himself in a precarious position this year. Recent events have seen him part ways with all of his closest allies, leaving him potentially vulnerable.

This backdrop sets the stage for what could be one of the most emotionally charged and strategically intriguing matches of the event. As the wrestling world turns its eyes towards the UBS Arena on June 30, the anticipation builds not only for the spectacle of Forbidden Door but for the personal and professional showdown between Zack Sabre Jr.

and Orange Cassidy. With both wrestlers having something to prove, this match is not just about titles but about settling scores and defining legacies in the annals of professional wrestling.
