AEW Dynamite has taken place this Wednesday, June 5th at the Blue Arena in Loveland, Colorado, and two new championship bouts have been announced for AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door 2024, as the next AEW pay-per-view is set to take place on Sunday, June 30th at the UBS Arena in Long Island, New York.

Champion vs. Champion, Title vs. Title

First, we know that we will have a Title vs. Title match at Forbidden Door, as “The CEO” Mercedes Moné and Stephanie Vaquer will clash for the second time ever. The two women have already fought each other in May 2023, at NJPW Resurgence. This time, two championships will be on the line: the TBS title and the NJPW STRONG Women’s title. Mercedes Moné has become TBS champion by defeating Willow Nightingale at Double Or Nothing on May 26th, and Stephanie Vaquer defeated Giulia on March 10th to become NJPW STRONG Women’s champion. So, one of them will leave Forbidden Door as double champion.

“Timeless” vs. Mina

Plus, “Timeless” Toni Storm knows that she will have to defend the AEW Women’s World championship against the Stardom’s icon Mina Shirakawa, who is one of the current Artist of Stardom champions (with Maika & Xena). Mina Shirakawa has had a few matches in AEW so far; can she become the face of the AEW Women’s division on June 30th at Forbidden Door?
