Tetsuya Naito has been picked as Sting and Darby Allin’s partner for their AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door bout.
Chris Jericho made his way down to the ring to begin tonight’s episode of AEW Collision and demanded to know who Sting and Allin would be bringing to the pay-per-view. Sting and Allin ultimately came out to confront Jericho after some more prodding.
Allin said in the ring that he knows Sammy isn’t in the ring tonight, but if he shows up to Forbidden Door tomorrow and stands with Jericho and Suzuki, he’ll kick his ass… Similar to how their partner kicked Jericho’s a$$ at the Tokyo Dome.
Tetsuya Naito, who had feuded with Jericho over the IWGP Intercontinental Championship between 2018 and 2019, made a magnificent entrance. Naito came down to the ring and gazed down at Jericho before he departed.
