Arguably one of the biggest possible dream matches in pro wrestling today will become a reality at Forbidden Door on Sunday when Bryan Danielson faces Kazuchika Okada.
Danielson recently laid down the challenge, and Okada quickly accepted, setting the stage for what could be a strong match-of-the-year contender.
For well over a decade, The American Dragon has been regarded by wrestling fans as one of the best in-ring workers in the world, and thanks to his dominance and history of great matches in NJPW, Okada has entered the conversation as well.
Unlike many of the singles matches on the Forbidden Door card, there will be no titles on the line here, but bragging rights will undoubtedly be up for grabs.
This PPV is quickly becoming a great vehicle for matches that fans want without the need for major storylines, and Danielson vs. Okada is a perfect example of that.
