As previously noted, several AEW stars that also work for Mexican promotion AAA are reportedly unable to appear at the Forbidden Door PPV due to the partnership between NJPW and AAA rival CMLL.
Andrade El Idolo spoke with Lucha Libre Online to talk about the situation and LuchaBlog.com translated what was said…
“Andrade says he was supposed to face Will Ospreay on Forbidden Door, was schedule to go to Japan to set it up, and then it was stopped. Andrade says he was booked and then canceled off the TripleMania Tijuana show. Andrade’s ultimately upset because he can’t work with NJPW because he’s working AAA, but AAA is actually not booking him when they said he would so he’s just not working. Andrade is sitting in his home in Florida and everyone else for this show has headed to Tijuana, so he’s probably not gotten the call.”
Ospreay is scheduled to compete against Orange Cassidy at Forbidden Door.
