All Elite Wrestling President Tony Khan again sparked intrigue across the wrestling world last week by revealing a new “forbidden door” will debut Wednesday night on Dynamite and battle Private Party’s Isiah Kassidy in a Face of the Revolution ladder match qualifier.
“I have created some debate about what it means to open the ‘Forbidden Door,’ and that’s what we are going to do on this show. The fans are going to get a great night of wrestling, and I hope everyone is surprised—and comes back for the matches this sets up,” he said in hyping what could be a transformative night for his promotion.
With so many big-name free agents on the market, who might be the latest acquisition? Who might elevate their career to “elite” status?
There are a number of former world champions who might inject the AEW product with some additional star power on Wednesday’s show.
What a get he would be for AEW, where wrestlers have more freedom to display their creative ideas. We have seen as much with Malakai Black, who has been rejuvenated by the House of Black.
Imagine what Wyatt would be able to do without having his vision constantly manipulated. Think about what it would mean for the top of the card, too.
We have seen him do battle with Bryan Danielson, Jon Moxley and CM Punk. He would step in and have ready-made stories with those guys and a plethora of new ones available to him.
Think about what it would do for “Hangman” Adam Page to have to overcome a mental war with him if he wished to continue on as AEW world champion.
The opportunities are endless and much of that can be attributed to the ever-thinking, ever-creative mind of the third-generation star, whose visions may have a chance to play out under a new banner, should he choose to make that jump.
As someone with interests outside of wrestling, though, now may not be the time for The Eater of Worlds to reappear in a squared circle.
