NJPW STRONG Preview for 10/30/21 (Autumn Attack Continues)

NJPW STRONG Preview for 10/30/21. After three exciting Autumn Attack shows, including last week’s that culminated in a brutal Texas Bullrope match between Juice Robinson and Hikuleo, this week’s episode of NJPW STRONG will see this series finale. Not only will the STRONG Openweight Champion be in action, but we will also see the legendary Minoru Suzuki team up with Lance Archer, as well as one of the newest AEW signees, Lio Rush. Here is the NJPW STRONG Preview for 10/30/21.

After last week’s show set a difficult bar to match, this week’s slate of matches definitely has the potential to do so. That being said, NJoA has been on quite the roll lately, so I have no doubt that they will be able to do so. This is the NJPW STRONG preview for 10/30 (Autumn Attack)

NJPW STRONG Preview for 10/30/21
First Match:

Fred Rosser and Rocky Romero vs. Team Filthy (Danny Limelight and JR Kratos)

All four of these men have quite an interesting history. It was one year ago that Danny Limelight turned his back on Rocky Romero and joining Team Filthy, which Romero surely remembers. Not only that, but earlier this year Fred Rosser defeated JR Kratos to punch his ticket into the NJPW CUP USA. Fred Rosser has also repeatedly voiced his desire to take Tom Lawlor’s (the leader of Team Filthy) STRONG Openweight Championship. A win against two members of Lawlor’s stable could go a long way in securing that title opportunity, where a loss would set him back significantly. Lot’s of moving parts in what should be an exciting opening contest.

Second Match:
Lio Rush vs. Taiji Ishimori

Lio Rush has certainly been living up to his nickname “The Man of the Hour.” After recently signing to AEW and continuing his work on STRONG, Rush also recently competed at a GCW (Game Changer Wrestling) event. After building up quite a bit of momentum, Lio Rush is in line to get one of the biggest wins of his career.

This comes by way of former IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion and BULLET CLUB member Taiji Ishimori. In what could be deemed a “dream match,” it will be interesting to see who gets the upper hand in what appears to be a dead-even matchup. Both men utilize fantastic technical skills complimented by an awe-inspiring aerial attack. Regardless of the winner, this one promises to steal the show.

NJPW STRONG Preview for 10/30/21
Main Event:

Suzuki-gun (Minoru Suzuki and Lance Archer) vs. Team Filthy (Tom Lawlor and Royce Isaacs)

The American tour for wrestling legend Minoru Suzuki continues in the main event of this week’s proceedings. Suzuki will once again team with long-time partner and current AEW star “the Murderhawk Monster” Lance Archer. The pair of Suzuki and Archer will take on the ever-dangerous Tom Lawlor and one of the newest members to Team Filthy, Royce Isaacs. I’m personally very intrigued to see Suzuki and Lawlor face off. Both have had similar career paths, starting in MMA before transitioning to professional wrestling.

Meanwhile, Lance Archer hasn’t been seen on STRONG since losing the IWGP US Championship to Hiroshi Tanahashi back in August and is certain to have some frustrations to take out. In what is sure to be a violent, hard-hitting affair, could we finally see Tom Lawlor suffer his first pinfall or submission defeat? Or will the end of Suzuki’s United States tour end on a sour note? One way or the other, something has to give.

This entire Autumn Attack series of shows has been nothing less than stellar. This week’s finale is yet another example of “saving the best for last.” NJoA has continued building momentum since the return of fans to STRONG tapings and has truly turned into must-see wrestling.
