At AEW’s upcoming Forbidden Door PPV Sammy Guevara, Chris Jericho and Minoru Suzuki will take on the team of Sting, Darby Allin and a partner TBA.
The mystery partner, set to be announced this Saturday on AEW Collision, has sent social media into speculation overdrive with one name popping up more than others.
The WWE Hall of Famer has been heavily linked with the promotion following his departure from WWE earlier this year.
Since leaving WWE Goldberg has expressed his desire to have a retirement match. Could Forbidden Door be the beginning of his farewell tour? Well, according to Tony Khan, although he would be a great fit for the show, he wants the door remains open for whoever it may be.
Speaking on the Forbidden Door media call about the situation, Khan said:
“I have had nice conversations with Bill about being involved with AEW at times. It’s a good thought. I don’t know if it would be the perfect fit for who Sting and Darby are going to bring to Collision this weekend, but I also want to leave all the doors open for them and their partner for Forbidden Door.” [H/T Fightful]
Online the popular candidate for Allin and Sting’s partner appears to be NJPW Superstar Tetsuya Naito.
Naito and Jericho have a storied history and the leader of LIJ is yet to be announced for the show and would fit in well with the aesthetic of Allin and ‘The Icon’ Sting.
