AEW and NJPW’s Forbidden Door event is coming on the 26th, but the card needed to be changed again. Now Tomohiro Ishii is out of action.
Tomohiro Ishii was set to take on Pac, Miro, and Malakai Black in a fatal four-way for the AEW All-Atlantic Title. Now Ishii is out of commission.
New Japan Pro-Wrestling’s official website broke the unfortunate news that Ishii is now out of the match. Clark Connors will replace him at the historic pay-per-view.
Tomohiro Ishii, who was scheduled to compete on June 26 at AEWxNJPW Presents Forbidden Door, has sustained a left knee injury and is not medically cleared to compete.
We apologize to fans who were looking forward to seeing Ishii wrestle and appreciate your understanding.
After a hard fought qualifying match in Korakuen Hall on June 21, Clark Connors will take Ishii’s place in the All-Atlantic Championship four ways at Forbidden Door. The card change is as follows
PAC vs Miro vs Malakai Black vs Clark Connors will still be a fantastic match, but a lot of fans are going to be disappointed that Tomohiro Ishii is out of the contest. We will continue monitoring this ongoing story as the event draws closer. You can check out an updated card below.
