Per Tony Khan’s official Twitter account, Eddie Kingston vs Tomohiro Ishii will have a rematch of their match at New Japan Pro-Wrestling’s (NJPW) Capital Collision event back in May. Ishii came away with the win in their last encounter in what was arguably the best match on the show, and an ultra-physical contest. Kingston and Ishii will face off at AEW All Out Zero Hour.

Eddie Kingston Faces Tomohiro Ishii, All Out Zero Hour
Kingston was originally going to wrestle Sammy Guevara on the show, but after a much-reported on scuffle between the two backstage, the feud was quickly and quietly cooled down. It isn’t clear exactly when Khan was able to get Ishii as a replacement, but it is interesting to see the match put on the Zero Hour, which will start at 7 PM, an hour before the official pay-per-view starts. Sammy Guevara does not have a match on the PPV himself as of yet, but with tickets already long sold out, Tony Khan has been taking some liberty with how close to the PPV he’s announcing matches. Even the AEW World Championship has yet to get an official match on the card yet.
The Zero Hour will start at 7 PM and will be free on YouTube, as well as coming with the PPV if purchased.
