Eddie Kingston challenges Tomohiro Ishii at NJPW Windy City Riot

Kingston challenged Ishii to a match for Capital Collision on May 14.

Eddie Kingston challenged Tomohiro Ishii to a match for NJPW’s Capital Collision event on May 14.

After Ishii defeated Minoru Suzuki at tonight’s Windy City Riot event in Chicago, Kingston came out and confronted Ishii. He said that while Ishii is known for his strong style, Kingston lives and breathes the king’s road style, referring to All Japan’s style of wrestling in the 1990s. He then issued the challenge for May 15th in Washington D.C., a challenge that Ishii quickly accepted.

Kingston has made several appearances for New Japan Strong in the last year. Most recently, he teamed with Fred Rosser to defeat Daniel Garcia and Fred Yehi at NJPW’s Strong Style Evolved tapings that were held on March 20. That continued the ongoing feud between Kingston and the Jericho Appreciation Society, which Garcia is a member of.

Names already announced for Capital Collision include Kazuchika Okada, Hiroshi Tanahashi, Jay White, Will Ospreay, Jon Moxley, Minoru Suzuki, Jeff Cobb, Tom Lawlor, and Fred Rosser.
