House of Glory has announced that Eddie Kingston will face Japanese legend Naomichi Marufuji in the main event of its ‘High Intensity’ show later this month.

Kingston was recently announced for the card, joining other AEW talent including Malakai Black, Brody King, and Buddy Matthews. However, his opponent was not unveiled until a late-night tweet was issued by the promotion.

Four-time GHC Heavyweight Champion Marufuji returned to in-ring action on August 5th after being sidelined since May due to knee pain.

‘High Intensity’ is scheduled for Sunday, August 28th, at the Terminal 5 venue in Hell’s Kitchen, New York City.

The current card for the event:

  • Eddie Kingston vs. Naomichi Marufuji
  • HOG Crown Jewel Championship: Charles Mason vs. Joey Janela
  • World Heavyweight Championship Final Round Match: Fatu vs. Brody King
  • Malakai Black vs. Amazing Red
  • Killer Kross vs. Low Ki
  • Matt Travis Memorial Battle Royal
  • Buddy Matthews in action

Kingston vs. Marufuji and the House of Black? If I weren’t busy that day at a party with friends, I would watch this show. Not sure if I can convince friends to order it.

I’ve been to Terminal 5 years ago when ROH ran Final Battle there. I wasn’t a fan of the place considering previous Final Battles were in the Manhattan Center, but I’ve definitely been to worse venues since.
