Ishii is headed to Forbidden Door.
All Elite Wrestling’s newest title is the All-Atlantic Championship. There is going to be a four-way at Forbidden Door on June 26th to crown the first-ever champion. That match field currently consists of PAC, Miro and the latest addition, Tomohiro Ishii.
Ishii scored a win over Clark Connors at today’s New Japan Road show to secure his spot in the match. The final spot will be determined on the 6/22 AEW Dynamite when Malakai Black takes on Penta Oscuro.
The 6/21 New Japan Road event was headlined by 2022 Best of the Super Juniors winner Hiromu Takahashi challenging Taiji Ishimori for the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship.
