PAC wins All-Atlantic Championship at AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door

PAC won a four-way to crown the inaugural All-Atlantic Champion at Sunday's event.

PAC is the first-ever AEW All-Atlantic Champion. 

In a four-way match at AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door, PAC defeated Miro, Malakai Black, and NJPW's Clark Connors to become the first All-Atlantic Champion, using his Brutalizer submission to tap out Connors and claim victory. 

Miro seemed to have had the match won, but Black sprayed him with black mist, forcing him to give up the Game Over submission hold that Miro had applied on PAC. Black then tried a submission hold on Connors, but PAC broke it up with a Black Arrow. PAC then used the Brutalizer for the win. 

PAC, Miro, and Black survived the qualifying series that began on the June 8 AEW Dynamite to advance to the finals at Forbidden Door. Tomohiro Ishii won a tournament in Japan to earn the spot as NJPW's representative in the match, but was scratched in the days leading up to the show with a knee injury. Connors then took Ishii's place in the match. 

The victory is the first title win for PAC in AEW.
