Eddie Kingston was supposed to take on Sammy Guevara at All Out, but ended up having a heated confrontation with The Spanish God. The match was scrapped and fans thought The Mad King would be left out of the show. That isn’t happening after all.
Tony Khan announced on Tuesday that Eddie Kingston will square off against New Japan Pro Wrestling’s very own Tomohiro Ishii at All Out this Sunday. The match will take place during the kick off show. You can read Khan’s tweet below.
