Jon Moxley And Eddie Kingston vs. Suzuki-Gun Set For 11/27 NJPW STRONG, Updated Card

On November 27, NJPW STRONG will deliver the most star-studded showcase of the Showdown event yet.

New Japan Pro-Wrestling has announced four buzzworthy bouts for the show. In the main event, AEW stars Jon Moxley and Eddie Kingston will face Minoru Suzuki and Lance Archer in a rematch of their bout from AEW Rampage: Grand Slam. Plus, Team Filthy will compete in a ten-man tag team match and former ROH Pure Champion Jonathan Gresham will also be in action.

The card and preview, courtesy of the NJPW website, is as follows:

 Philadelphia Streetfight: Eddie Kingston & Jon Moxley vs. Suzuki-Gun (Minoru Suzuki & Lance Archer)

The iconic home of hardcore that is the 2300 Arena gets a fitting main event this week as Minoru Suzuki and Lance Archer take on Eddie Kingston and Jon Moxley. It was early in the autumn when Suzuki arrived in the USA, and started his American sojourn by resuming a feud with Jon Moxley. Reconnecting with AEW’s Lance Archer in the process, the two took on Mox and Kingston in New York, only for the sudden appearance of NY native Homicide to lead to a Suzuki-Gun defeat. Demanding a rematch on NJPW turf, now the four are set to collide in a violent war with no disqualifications or countouts, and where the referee’s only job is to render a decision by pinfall, submission or knock out.

Daniel Garcia, Brody King & Chris Dickinson vs. Stray Dog Army (Bateman, Barrett Brown & Misterioso)

The third match of the evening sees Red Death Daniel Garcia link up with Brody King and Chris Dickinson to take on the Stray Dog Army. Bateman, Brown and Misterioso are one big decisive win away from being a major faction of players on Saturday night, but Death and Violence stand in their path this week.

Team Fred (Fred Rosser, Rocky Romero, Ren Narita, Karl Fredericks & The DKC) vs. Team Filthy (Tom Lawlor, JR Kratos, Royce Isaacs, Jorel Nelson & Danny Limelight)

Two weeks removed from Tom Lawlor and Team Filthy’s demeaning forced haircut on Fred Rosser, the number one contender to the STRONG Openweight Championship will be leading a team to war tonight in Philadelphia. These ten man tag contests have been a highlight of STRONG for weeks. This time though there is a deeply personal issue at play, and much more than a notch in the win column at stake.

Alex Coughlin’s Challenge Match Series: Alex Coughlin vs. Jonathan Gresham

The night’s action will start with the latest of Alex Coughlin’s Challenge Match Series. This time, Coughlin’s technical prowess will be put to the ultimate test against one of the world’s foremost practitioners of the style. The former ROH Pure Champion Jonathan Gresham makes his return to NJPW action this Saturday; after swimming with sharks, can Coughlin outlast the Octopus?

The New Japan Showdown event was filmed on October 16-17 at the 2300 Arena, and it has been airing on NJPW STRONG over the last few weeks.

NJPW STROMG airs Saturdays at 8 p.m. EST on FITE and NJPW World.
