The remaining 3000 tickets for June's AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door pay-per-view sold out in minutes Friday as part of the public onsale, ensuring the event at Chicago's United Center will be sold out.

That follows Thursday's presale that saw more than 11,000 tickets sold in under 40 minutes, meaning the Sunday, June 26th event will have more than 14,000 fans in attendance. The final number will depend on how many production hold tickets will be released.

Announced several weeks ago, it will be AEW's first co-promoted event with NJPW. The two have had a strong working relationship over the past year with talents from both companies working in the other. 

Although the company is no stranger to Chicago, it will be AEW's second visit to the United Center. The first was last August's First Dance edition of Rampage that saw CM Punk return to wrestling for the first time in seven years.

For that event, AEW didn't advertise Punk and sold more than 12,000 tickets in their presale, moving the remaining amount in four minutes for the public onsale.

Attendance for that show ended up being 15,316.
