I like Caster, but I'm more of a Bowens guy. And of course, Bill Ass.

I don’t think I’m going to buy Forbidden Door, but man if it ain’t intriguing.

-The 4-way match for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship is some dream [expletive]. I’m not even a huge Jay White fan, but Hangman is my favorite AEW wrestler, Adam Cole Bay Bay was my favorite NXT guy, and Okada might be the best wrestler on the planet.

-Mox vs Tanahashi should be a ton of fun. I wouldn’t be surprised if Mox wins and becomes AEW’s first two-time champ, but I hope it’s Tanahashi so we still get the Punk match eventually. Plus, I think it would be neat for a New Japan wrestler to hold the AEW belt. In that same vein, I want Hangman or Cole to win the 4-way.

-FTR needs to win the tag match and get all the gold eventually. I don’t know anyone on more of a roll, and I can’t really even point to anything specific that got them there.

-I want Malakai Black to win the All-Atlantic title. Miro would be a good champ too, but Black needs it more. He was severely underutilized in WWE, and I worry it’s already been too long that he hasn’t even been in a title picture.

-Preparing to be let down for the ZSJ mystery opponent. Danielson is hurt and that sucks, and anyone you put in to replace him will be a step down. The hope is that it’s Claudio/Cesaro, but if it was, why wouldn’t you announce it last night? People who were on the fence would buy if you announced him.

-I think Toni Storm should win the Women’s match but believe it will be Thunder Rosa. I’m afraid of Toni becoming just another wrestler as has happened with Ruby Soho.

-Ospreay should beat Orange Cassidy but not really feeling this one.

-The Jericho/Guevara/Suzuki vs Kingston/Yuta/Umino is so randomly thrown together. Similar situation with The Bullet Club match.

Well, I got a lot wrong on this card, but it sounds like Forbidden Door was great and compensated for lackluster builds with simply amazing wrestling.

WWE's first female referee accused Vince of assaulting her in 1986. For the first time, someone else is corroborating her story.
