Tetsuya Naito Wins IWGP World Heavyweight Title at Forbidden Door – Tetsuya Naito reclaimed the IWGP World Heavyweight Title at AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door by defeating Jon Moxley in the co-main event.

The match was a hard-fought battle, with Moxley nearly securing victory after hitting Naito with a Death Rider. However, Naito managed to kick out, much to Moxley’s frustration, who voiced his displeasure with referee Red Shoes.

Naito ultimately triumphed by delivering his finishing move, Destino, to pin Moxley and win the title. This victory marks Naito’s second reign as IWGP World Heavyweight Champion. Moxley’s reign lasted 80 days, during which he made four successful title defenses.
