The preview, courtesy of NJPW’s website, is as follows:
Main event: United Empire (Jeff Cobb, Mark Davis & Kyle Fletcher) vs TMDK (JONAH, Shane Haste & Bad Dude Tito)
Six man action in the main event sees Aussie Open, Mark Davis and Kyle Fletcher, in their NJPW STRONG debuts. Having wowed crowds at Windy City Riot and Capital Collision, United Empire’s formidable tag team will be joined by the Imperial Unit Jeff Cobb to take on TMDK. The Mighty Don’t Kneel will see Shane Haste, Bad Dude Tito and JONAH, forming quite the opposition. Indeed JONAH and Shane Haste took Aussie Open under their wings once upon a time, making interactions in this bout something to see. Yet it’ll be the super heavyweights that will likely draw most attention tonight- just what happens when Jeff Cobb and JONAH go head to head?
2nd Match: David Finlay vs Blake Christian
A first time singles match sees David Finlay take on Blake Christian. His tag team with new IWGP United States Champion Juice Robinson now in the rear view, as the ‘Rock Hard’ Robinson has joined BULLET CLUB, Finlay will now want to re-establish himself on a singles stage. With recent singles outings against the likes of SW3RVE and JONAH, Christian has been doing just that of late, but hasn’t picked up a big establishing win. Both will be highly motivated to get the W here tonight, but who will it be?
1st Match: Fred Yehi, Kevin Knight & The DKC vs Stray Dog Army (Misterioso, Barrett Brown & Bateman)
The night’s action starts with Fred Yehi returning to team with Kevin Knight and the DKC to face the Stray Dog Army. Last time Yehi teamed with the LA Dojo boys, success came the trio’s way, and the incensed Stray Dog Army vowed to get tough. As Bateman targets Yehi, and Misterioso and Brown look to make an example of Knight and The DKC, can they earn some revenge tonight?
WrestleZone will have coverage of the show after it airs.
