NJPW Announces Partial Lineup For NJPW STRONG New Japan Showdown In Philly

New Japan Pro Wrestling has announced two matchups for their October 16th & October 17th NJPW STRONG New Japan Showdown events from the legendary 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, which will feature the legendary Minoru Suzuki in action, as well as former world champion Will Ospreay. Check it out below.


-Chris Dickinson versus Minoru Suzuki

"A first time ever singles encounter will see the Dirty Daddy Chris Dickinson go toe to toe with Minoru Suzuki. At one point scheduled for independent events before the COVID pandemic disrupted the entire wrestling world, NJPW STRONG can now bring about this fated dream match. Dickinson is as respected as they come as a striker and grappler, but can he match up with the King? This is an encounter you will need to witness live and in person at the 2300 Arena next month!"


Alex Zayne versus Will Ospreay

"Night two in Philadelphia will see Alex Zayne in singles action against “IWGP World Heavyweight Champion” Will Ospreay. Alex Zayne was a viral sensation when he first got the opportunity to compete in NJPW STRONG, and after a brief sojourn to WWE, returns to STRONG with a huge test awaiting him. Whether his title claims are legitimate or not, Ospreay is indisputably one of the best wrestlers in the world, but could Zayne surprise the Commonwealth kingpin in Philly?"
