AEW announced a new segment between AEW star Jon Moxley and NJPW star Hiroshi Tanahashi for tomorrow’s AEW Dynamite: Road Rager. 

AEW President Tony Khan announced Tuesday evening that Moxley and Tanahashi will go face-to-face.

Hiroshi Tanahashi will face Moxley for the Interim AEW World Championship at “Forbidden Door”. Tanahashi had defeated Hirooki Goto at the  NJPW “Dominion” Pay-Per-View, to earn the title match.

As noted, the original AEW World Heavyweight Title match was also supposed to involve Tanahashi, however, Punk suffered a foot injury and recently underwent successful surgery, so while he is on the sidelines, AEW will determine an Interim Champion to take his place.

AEW x NJPW “Forbidden Door” is scheduled for Sunday, June 26 from the United Center in Chicago, IL.

Below is the updated lineup for tomorrow’s AEW Dynamite: Road Rager episode:
