Lion’s Break Collision Coming to NJPW World
Major League Wrestling had previously teased a cross-promotional match featuring Tom Lawlor. The former MLW World Champion is the first wrestler to represent MLW in New Japan. MLW is clearly very excited about their former world champion competing in New Japan. They posted a press release to their official website earlier today congratulating the captain of Team Filth.
In 2018 and 2019, New Japan Pro Wrestling held special two-night events under the Lion’s Break Project banner. These events at the Anaheim Convention Center featured talent from the NJPW LA Dojo against established NJPW stars. Many American rookies, such as Karl Fredricks and Alex Coughlin, made their debuts for NJPW here. New Japan had scheduled a third event for April 2nd of this year, however, they had to cancel due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Lion’s Break Collision joins the batch of new, exciting content NJPW promised when they announced the return of live events.
