SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
Kazuchika Okada made his AEW Dynamite debut this week and the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship will be defended in a fatal four-way match at Forbidden Door.
This week on AEW Dynamite, Adam Page defeated Silas Young in a singles match. After the match, Adam Cole began cutting a promo, but was interrupted by the IWGP World Heavyweight Champion, Jay White. White reiterated that neither Adam Cole or Adam Page would face him for the title at Forbidden Door. White and Page began fighting and Cole got in the mix as well. Cole and White teamed up against Page, which prompted an appearance from Kazuchika Okada. Okada ran down to even the odds and he and Page cleared the ring.
