As previously noted, NJPW star Kenta tweeted “it depends on money“ in response to the idea of a match against AEW’s CM Punk at the upcoming Forbidden Door II PPV event. According to Fightful Select, the working plan right now is for Kenta to be part of the show and it’s just a matter of who his opponent will be.
Fightful noted the following regarding Kenta’s potential opponent…
“We haven’t heard that KENTA’s deal to appear at the show is finalized, but both companies are operating on the assumption that he is. However, the internally discussed opponent brings a different gravity to the situation. We’ve learned that CM Punk has been discussed as KENTA’s opponent, which could help bring closure to an over-decade back and forth between the two.”
Kenta previously appeared on AEW television back in early 2021.
