Three More Matches Announced For NJPW STRONG Fighting Spirit Unleashed

New Japan Pro-Wrestling continues to load up the card for “Fighting Spirit Unleashed”, its taping of NJPW STRONG at the Vermont Hollywood on August 21.

Three new matches have been added to the card. AEW’s Peter Avalon and Aaron Solo will be in action; The Wingmen representative will battle Adrian Quest, while The Factory member will take on Che Cabrera.  Plus, IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion Taiji Ishimori will face Alan Angels.

The preview, courtesy of NJPW’s website, is as follows:

Taiji Ishimori will face Alan Angels in Hollywood. A part of Autumn Attack in Texas last year, this is Ishimori’s second series with NJPW STRONG, but his first as IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion. After Angels and partner Evil Uno impressed during the STRONG Tag Championship tournament, the Angels could dramatically grow the presence for himself and the Dark Order with a strong performance against the champ in non-title action.

In STRONG vs AEW action, Adrian Quest will take on Peter Avalon. ‘Pretty’ Peter makes his STRONG debut at FSU, and will do it against someone in Quest who has impressed with performances in the past, but is looking for his first big statement win. Will he get one against Elite competition?

Che Cabrera will make his NJPW STRONG debut opposite The Factory’s Aaron Solo. Solo and Nick Comoroto were knocked out of the STRONG Tag Team Championship tournament, but QT Marshall’s boys are eager to regain ground, and Solo will seek to do so against west coast independent veteran Cabrera.

The updated card is as follows:

  • Alan Angels vs. Taiji Ishimori
  • Peter Avalon vs. Adrian Quest
  • Che Cabrera vs. Aaron Solo
  • Robbie Eagles vs. Kevin Blackwood
  • QT Marshall vs. Keita
  • Misterioso vs. Mascara Dorada
  • Bullet Club (Jay White, Juice Robinson, Chase Owens, and Hikuleo) vs. Trent Beretta, KUSHIDA, Taylor Rust, and Rocky Romero
