An injury to Tomohiro Ishii will remove the New Japan performer from this Sunday’s Forbidden Door event in Chicago.
New Japan Pro Wrestling issued the following update:
Thank you for supporting New Japan Pro-Wrestling.
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.
Replacement Clark Connors will represent NJPW in the match this Sunday against Miro, PAC, and Malakai Black to determine the first AEW All-Atlantic Champion.
