Due to the partnership between NJPW and CMLL, AEW stars that also work for AAA will reportedly not be appearing at the upcoming Forbidden Door PPV event as AAA and CMLL are rival promotions in Mexico. Andrade first tweeted about the situation on Monday when he wrote, “I can’t work with NJPW, thanks CMLL and AAA 👍🏼” and AAA’s Konnan responded with, “we have nothing to do with NJ or CMLL arcane decisions.”

LuchaBlog.com author thecubsfan wrote the following about the situation…
“I’ve since been told Andrade was booked on Forbidden Door and is no longer booked on Forbidden Door. Fenix & Penta will also not be appearing on Forbidden Door, as confirmed to me by multiple sources. Andrade’s tweet should be taken at face value. This is bad for everyone.”
The first AEW All-Atlantic Champion will be crowned at Forbidden Door and the AAA news would seemingly confirm that Penta won’t be advancing in the tournament.
