At the AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door PPV on Sunday, Jon Moxley will face Hiroshi Tanahashi for the interim AEW World title. However, the Wrestling Observer Newsletter notes that the original plan for Moxley at the event was said to be very different. It was previously planned for Tanahashi to face CM Punk in the main event. With Punk injured, Moxley was put in his place.

As for the original plan with Mox, he was set to be involved in the six-man tag that now features Eddie Kingston, Wheeler Yuta and Shota Umino vs. Chris Jericho, Minoru Suzuki & Sammy Guevara. That is why Umino is included, because he would have been teaming with his storyline mentor, Moxley. It’s unknown which member of the babyface team replaced Moxley when plans changed.
