Rocky Romero and Ren Narita lead STRONG charge to AEW Monday
AEW’s weekly Dark: Elevation event will see NJPW, and NJPW STRONG in particular represented in a major way, including in the night’s main event. There Rocky Romero will take on JD Drake. As US competition has opened up in 2021, Romero has been in action in multiple promotions, but this is his first time in an AEW ring. A win here could make a big enough impression to count Rocky in for junior heavyweight competition Stateside and in Japan before the year is out, but can he overcome both Drake and his Wingmen?
Also on Dark: Elevation, Ren Narita takes on Royce Isaacs. AEW Dynamite viewers got a gl9impse of Narita a couple of weeks ago when he cornered Yuji Nagata to his IWGP US Heavyweight Championship challenge against Jon Moxley. Now though, he gets a chance to show what STRONG fans already know; that Narita is an incredible prospect who is growing more intense and more impressive by the week. Opposite him is Royce Isaacs, who recently made his own STRONG debut alongside West Coast Wrecking Crew partner Jorel Nelson. Stakes could be high for both men as they look to make an impression not just on Monday, but Friday nights as well.
