NJPW announces three matches for this week's Strong

NJPW has announced the lineup for Friday’s NJPW Strong. This week’s event is the second in a series of Road to New Japan Showdown events. 

In the main event, Jeff Cobb and Rocky Romero will team against Rust Taylor and JR Kratos.

Romero and Taylor previously teamed up on the Lion’s Break Collision events held this past July. Kratos is a veteran of the indie scene who toured with AJPW in February. The most recent notable appearance for Kratos was at UWN Primetime Live on October 20, where he lost to Mike Bennett. 

Chase Owens will take on Danny Limelight. Limelight is coming off a loss to Clark Connors in the Lion’s Break Crown finals and a defeat to Misterioso during Strong’s NEVER events. 

In Friday’s opener, Fred Rosser will face Jordan Clearwater. Clearwater is still searching for his first NJPW victory. 

Strong airs Fridays at 10 p.m. Eastern time on NJPW World.
