NJPW STRONG preview: Road to Lion’s Break Crown 【NJoA】

Preview of upcoming tournament and more


Friday night at 10e/9c/7p, we get on the Road to Lion’s Break Crown on NJPW STRONG. A preview of this thrilling upcoming tournament highlights Friday night’s episode of STRONG, and a huge tag team main event will cap the evening off. 

Watch NJPW STRONG Fridays at 10e/9c/7p!

Main event: ACH & Alex Zayne vs Guerrillas of Destiny (Tama Tonga & Tanga Loa)

The main event of the evening sees ACH and Alex Zayne team up to take on GoD. The combination of Zayne and ACH is a thrilling one on paper; ACH has gained a new level of focus since his return to NJPW with the start of NJPW STRONG, and will be in position to lead the always dynamic and innovative Zayne to a no doubt impressive performance. Whether he can lead his team to a victory over one of the most dominant tag teams in NJPW history remains to be seen. 

Tama Tonga and Tanga Loa put together a tag team wrestling clinic during Fighting Spirit Unleashed, with a comfortable victory over David Finlay and PJ Black; as accomplished as both of their opponents were last week, together they had nowhere near the level of connection and communication that the six time IWGP Tag Team Champions do. Will GoD, and by extension BULLET CLUB once again extend their dominance on Friday nights, or will Zayne and ACH have a surprise up their sleeves?

2nd Match: Rocky Romero & PJ Black vs Fred Rosser & Misterioso

A star studded tag team match on the Road to Lion’s Break Crown will see Rocky Romero teaming with PJ Black against Fred Rosser and Misterioso. After Rocky defeated Danny Limelight at Fighting Spirit Unleashed, the head coach of NJPW STRONG is on a high, but so too is Fred Rosser, victorious on his debut a couple of weeks ago. Each of these two partners with men coming off losses in recent weeks in PJ Black and Misterioso, and all four will be hungry to either keep winning ways going or break out of losing ones. 

1st match: Clark Connors, Danny Limelight, Adrian Quest & Logan Riegel vs Barrett Brown, Jordan Clearwater, Blake Christian & The DKC

We get started on the Road to Lion’s Break Crown with an eight man tag team preview of the tournament. The diverse styles and personalities of all eight competitors will be on display as each young star will be looking for a place in the spotlight before the single elimination tournament gets underway.
