An IWGP World Heavyweight Championship match has been announced for AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door. 

In a match set up on this week's Dynamite, Jay White will defend the IWGP World title in a four-way against Kazuchika Okada, Hangman Page, and Adam Cole. 

Following a Hangman vs. Silas Young match with Adam Cole on commentary on Dynamite, Cole cut a promo. White interrupted, and said that he would not be defending the title against Cole or Page on Sunday. White and Cole attacked Page, Cole seemingly considered attacking White, then Okada ran in to make the surprise save for Page, setting up the four-way.
