As if Forbidden Door‘s card wasn't already loaded enough, AEW and New Japan Pro Wrestling have added two more bouts to the big-time card on this week's edition of Rampage, with the pre-show now featuring three matches and 16 total wrestlers for good measure.
That's right, joining the already intriguing eight-man tag match featuring Max Caster plus the Gunns Billy, Austin, and Colten, versus Alex Couglin, Kevin Knight, Yuya Uemura, and The DKC – fresh off his impressive showing versus Hook on Rampage – of the NJPW LA Dojo are a bout between Chaos member Hirooki Goto and Yoshi Hashi and QT Marshall and Aaron Solo of The Factory and a very intriguing bout between Swerve in out Glory, fresh off a weird bout on AEW Dark Elevation and the Suzuki-Gun duo of El Desperado and Yoshinobu Kanemaru in the lead up to their leader, Minoru Suzuki, joining forces with Chris Jericho and Sammy Guevara for a match against Eddie Kingston, Shota Umino, and Wheeler Yuta.
2 more matches added to #ForbiddenDoor Buy-In THIS SUNDAY at 7pm ET on https://t.co/lBSV4sbfpB right before the PPV!

Get your dog walks and wing orders in early on Sunday, folks; this card is going to be like a five-hour roller coaster ride with very little time to catch one's breath or even take a mid-card bathroom break.
Assuming Tony Khan is finished padding out the card with even more matches, which is never a guarantee, the Forbidden Door now sits at an even 12 matches, with dozens of intriguing storylines and more than a few surprises in store for fans both in the United Center in Chicago and for the fans watching from home looking to be entertained with a Sunday evening chocked full of dream matches.
