Swap him out. We are on the way to Forbidden Door where AEW stars will face off with New Japan Pro Wrestling wrestlers in a variety of matches. Some of these matches are going to be rather interesting on their own but there are some titles included to spice things up a bit. That is the case with a brand new championship, but now we have a new name trying to win the inaugural title.
New Japan Pro Wrestling has announced that Tomohiro Ishii has suffered a knee injury and is out of the All Atlantic Title match at Forbidden Door. Clark Connors, who Ishii defeated to earn the spot in the match, will take his place in the match. Therefore, Connors will be facing Malakai Black, Pac and Miro for the inaugural title. The other three all won qualifying matches in recent weeks on Dynamite.
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that you cannot expect and Connors being in the match is the most logical thing that can be done. The unfortunate part is the fact that Ishii is the latest in the long string of injuries for AEW or people appearing on AEW shows. It keeps happening over and over and that can change the way AEW can run things, which could be quite the problem going forward.
What do you think of the change? Who leaves with the title? Let us know in the comments below.
