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 apologise 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 way at Forbidden Door. The card change is as follows

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
