Due to a fever and not being allowed to fly in as a result, Hiromu Takahashi is off Sunday's AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door pay-per-view.

The NJPW standout was set to team with Sting, Darby Allin & Shingo Takagi against The Young Bucks, Hikuleo & El Phantasmo on the PPV, announced on Wednesday's Dynamite.

The match will now be Sting, Allin & Takagi vs. the Bucks & ELP with Hikuleo in their corner.
