Main event: STRONG Openweight Championship: Fred Rosser vs Chris Dickinson

The STRONG Openweight Championship is on the line in the main event this evening, as Fred Rosser seeks to make his fourth defence of the gold in as many months. While Rosser himself would call out Big Damo for Music City Mayhem, his next challengers in Fred Yehi and TJP both made their intentions known face to face and with some degree of honour. Yet this was anything but the case at the close of the Fighting Spirit Unleashed series in Hollywood. There a cowardly attack from a returning Dickinson left a sour taste in the mouth of the champion, and a bitter need for sweet revenge. Rosser has no time for Dickinson’s actions, and the Vegas crowd will be all behind the champion as Autumn Action continues.

2nd Match: STRONG Openweight Tag Team Championships: Aussie Open (Mark Davis & Kyle Fletcher) vs Team Filthy (JR Kratos & Danny Limelight)

A second title match sees another set of fighting champions in Aussie Open look to extend their own reign to V3 in the face of JR Kratos and Danny Limelight. In Hollywood, Kyle Fletcher and Mark Davis were able to make good on their second defence total and first on US soil when they got past the West Coast Wrecking Crew, but an issue with Team Filthy was not completely put to bed. Kratos and Limelight harked back to their early days on STRONG, and their work to build a foundationf or the show while audiences were s6till barred from buildings. Now, will their hard work see material reward, or will the Aussies continue to build a STRONG legacy?

1st match: Che Cabrera vs Doc Gallows

The action kicks off this week with Che Cabrera taking on Doc Gallows in singles action. In Hollywood, Cabrera impressed on his STRONG debut, and nearly got the win over Aaron Solo but for a handful of ropes. Yet Gallows presents a different prospect, and one that was only further angered by Toru Yano in Japan recently. Can ‘Latino Meat’ survive and thrive in Vegas?

WrestleZone will have coverage of the show as it airs.
