Kauzuchika Okada appeared at tonight’s AEW Dynamite, setting up a four-way match for the IWGP World Heavyweight title at Forbidden Door.

After Hangman Page defeated Silas Young on tonight’s show, Adam Cole cut him off and argued over who should get the IWGP title match at Forbidden Door. Jay White came out and said Cole couldn’t challenge because he lost to Hangman twice. He then entered the ring and told Page that he couldn’t challenge either. The three got into a brawl. Cole teased hitting White with the IWGP title, but instead told White to hold up Page. As Cole was about to strike Page with the title, Okada came out and helped Page clear the ring of both Cole and White.

Later in the show, it was confirmed that the IWGP World Heavyweight title match at Forbidden Door would be a four-way, with White defending against Okada, Page, and Cole.

Page originally challenged Okada for the IWGP World Heavyweight title following Double or Nothing.  However, Okada went on to lose the championship to White at NJPW's Dominion event on June 12.
