With AEW X NJPW: Forbidden Door coming, AEW Dynamite has many interesting matchups this week. Also, Bryan Danielson returned and had some quite bad news.

Bryan Danielson opened this week’s AEW Dynamite with some would say bad news, as he is not cleared for the PPV’s AEW X NJPW: Forbidden Door and Blood and Guts. So, the dream of watching one of the best technical matches of all time is scrapped for now.  Danielson said that despite not being cleared to compete in Blood N’ Guts or return this Sunday, he had been scheduled to meet Zack Sabre Jr. at Forbidden Door. The American Dragon claimed to have the ideal stand-in for Blood N’ Guts, but it wouldn’t be made public until Forbidden Door. When Zack Sabre Jr.’s song started, the two guys locked eyes.

Orange Cassidy and Roppongi Vice vs. Will Ospreay and Aussie Open

Orange Cassidy and Will Ospreay will square off at Forbidden Door on Sunday night, but on Wednesday, Freshley Squeezed teamed up Trent Beretta and Rocky Romero of Roppongi Vice to take against Ospreay and Mark Davis and Kyle Fletcher of Aussie Open. The babyfaces overcame a focused beatdown of the sole Beretta in an all-action tag team bout to emerge from nowhere to win after Cassidy’s Orange Punch. Will this be the case at Forbidden Door this Sunday night.

Winner: Orange Cassidy and Roppongi Vice

Following the conclusion of last week’s broadcast, Christian Cage betrayed Jungle Boy, which he addressed during a promo with Tony Schiavone in the ring. He got the crowd to yell and scream expletives at him by citing his loss to the young star at Double or Nothing 2021 in the Casino Battle Royale and revealed his reasons for joining AEW as sheer avarice. Luchasaurus had had enough by the time he started insulting Jungle Boy’s late father, Hollywood actor Luke Perry. He entered the arena to get revenge on his teammate but was persuaded by Cage to let calmer heads prevail.

Penta Oscuro vs. Malakai Black (All-Atlantic Championship Qualifier)

An All-Atlantic Championship Qualifying match between Penta Oscuro and Malakai Black represented the rivalry between Death Triangle and The House of Black. Penta flourished late in the back-and-forth game. He appeared to be in the driver’s seat metaphorically speaking thanks to an avalanche Fear Factor as he sought to hand Black a rare singles defeat. But he hurt his own back in the process, stopping him from getting the crucial pinfall. Oscuro was slowed down, thus Black used this to his advantage by blasting him with Black Mass to win by pinfall.

Winner: Malakai Black

Hangman Page vs. Silas Young

It was, as to be expected, a brutally physical contest that featured Young briefly but ultimately served as a showcase for Page, who defeated the extremely competitive ROH alum and defeated him with the Buckshot Lariat. After the bout, Adam Cole tried to speak, but Jay White’s music started and he cut him off. A two-on-one beating of Hangman followed before we could find out who White will defend against Sunday night at Forbidden Door. As a result, Kazuchika Okada made his debut on AEW. To end the segment, The Rainmaker entered the ring and took a commanding position next to Page.

Winner: Hangman Page

Toni Storm vs. Marina Shafir

Toni Storm fought “The Problem” Marina Shafir, who was joined to the squared circle by “The Native Beast” Nyla Rose, before her AEW World Women’s Championship bout against Thunder Rosa on Sunday at Forbidden Door. With the help of some well-timed blows, Shafir was able to overwhelm her opponent early on and maintain her on the ground throughout the commercial break. The Australian rock star’s comeback was started by a tornado DDT by Storm on the mat and a German suplex back inside the squared circle. In the end, Storm would defend a pumphandle slam and score a rollup. Shafir and Rose were about to defeat the winner two-on-one when Rosa intervened and then confronted her.

Winner: Toni storm

Chris Jericho and Lance Archer vs. Jon Moxley and Hiroshi Tanahashi

In the main event of Forbidden Door on Sunday night, Hiroshi Tanahashi of New Japan Pro-Wrestling and Jon Moxley will compete for the AEW Interim World Championship. They had to put their differences aside and concentrate on the great Chris Jericho and “Murderhawk Monster” Lance Archer first. After a diversion from Sammy Guevara and Tay Conti at ringside, the heels worked over Moxley, knocking him out and separating him from his opponent.

The comeback was started by a hot tag to Tanahashi, but Jericho countered Hight Fly Flo into the Walls of Jericho to stop the babyfaces’ momentum. All four men fell to the ground when Moxley completed the save and Tanahashi gave Archer the sling sword. Ace bounced back and eventually defeated Archer by pinfall. After the game, Eddie Kingston, Wheeler Yuta, Shota Umino, and Minoru Suzuki all showed up. As a chaotic brawl broke out, the Jericho Appreciation Society entered the fray.

Winner: Jon Moxley and Hiroshi Tanahashi
