Ricochet’s departure was scripted into the show when Bron Breakker threw him into a WWE production truck and smashed him through a car windshield. WWE later reported that Ricochet had suffered multiple upper body injuries and would be out of action for an unspecified period.

• Sunday’s AEW x NJPW: Forbidden Door 2024 PPV at the UBS Arena in Elmont, NY, drew significant attention not only for its thrilling matches but also for some notable backstage appearances.

The event’s main attraction saw AEW World Champion Swerve Strickland successfully defend his title against AEW International Champion Will Ospreay.

Among those spotted backstage was Dijak, who recently completed his WWE contract. Dijak made his first post-WWE appearance in a surprise debut at the Blitzkrieg Pro event on Saturday night, where he interrupted CPA’s celebration and executed his Feast Your Eyes finisher. His presence at Forbidden Door, as revealed on his X account, has fueled speculation about his future plans.

Another interesting figure at the event was Matt Camp, formerly the host of WWE’s The Bump. Camp, who also contributed to WWE shows like Raw Talk and SmackDown Lowdown, departed WWE in February, much to the surprise of many within the company. His appearance at Forbidden Door, reported by PWInsider, has led to further curiosity about his next career move.

While it remains uncertain whether AEW has plans to sign Dijak and Camp, their presence at the event certainly adds an intriguing layer to the ongoing developments in the wrestling world.
