New Japan Pro Wrestling will continue their U.S. expansion on September 30th, returning to the Walter Pyramid in Long Beach, California for what is sure to be another excellent show.
While the final match card will likely not be finalized until after the upcoming NJPW Destruction tour, the promotion has confirmed three big matches for the show including title title bouts.
Following their collision in the 2018 G1 Climax Finals, Juice Robinson will defend the IWGP U.S. Heavyweight Championship against the “American Nightmare” Cody Rhodes. In addition, the Young Bucks will be putting their IWGP Tag Team Championships on the line against Tama Tonga and Tanga Loa, the Guerrillas of Destiny. This is just the next small step in the ongoing war between Bullet Club Elite and the Bullet Club OGz.
As noted, Hiromu Takahashi has officially vacated the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Championship after breaking his neck at the last NJPW show in the U.S. A tournament has been announced between four former champions, and one of those bouts, Will Ospreay vs. Marty Scurll, will take place in Long Beach.
Below is the updated match card:
