NJPW STRONG dives right into the tag team tournament with this opening match on Saturday night. During the Collision series, QT Marshall and The Factory launched an attack on Karl Fredericks before Christopher Daniels arrived to make the save. Since then, The Fallen Angel has deepened his bond with the LA Dojo, entering the tournament with Karl Fredericks.

However, when Fredericks had to withdraw from the tournament, Daniels found a more than suitable replacement in Yuya Uemura. The Duo of youth and experience tangles with the power and agility of Nick Comoroto and Aaron Solow. Comoroto and Solow are looking to get back at Daniels for thwarting them at Collision but also driven by their need to prove The Factory’s dominance over the Dojo.

Will that fire bring them the victory they need to advance in this tournament?

Speaking of tournaments…

Taylor Rust vs JONAH

Next weekend in Hokkaido, “The Top Dog,” JONAH makes his debut in the G1 Climax. The big man will be looking to pick up the ever-important momentum in the leadup to the most prestigious tournament in the industry. Meanwhile, The Sultan of Submission wants to get his year back on track. In the seven matches Taylor Rust has had in 2022, he’s only picked up one win.

That win was in a tag team match, with Fred Rosser and Rocky Romero over Team Filthy back in the Rivals series. While Rust didn’t pick up the pin in that match, it’s worth mentioning that most of his losses come from tag team matches in which he did not take the pin. However, the most destructive loss came when he challenged former NJPW Strong Openweight Champion Tom Lawlor at the start of the year.

Returning to his former winning ways is a daunting, though not impossible, task. A win over the most prominent member of TMDK would give him a significant leg up in the climb back to the championship picture. But will Taylor Rust’s submission skills be enough to conquer the mountain of a man they call JONAH? Find out this Saturday night on NJPW World and FITE TV.

TMDK (Shane Haste & Mikey Nicholls) vs. West Coast Wrecking Crew (Jorel Nelson & Royce Isaacs)
– 1st Round Match

Two of the biggest factions in NJPW STRONG collide in this 1st round main event match. Over the past year, Royce Isaacs and Jorel Nelson of Team Filthy have come to be the standard-bearers for tag team wrestling on NJPW STRONG. When rumors began circulating that a tag team championship was coming to the LA Dojo, West Coast Wrecking Crew seemed the obvious bet for first champs.

However, the odds have shifted significantly, as their first-round opponents are none other than The Mighty Don’t Kneel. While Shane Haste and Mikey Nicholls have spent a significant deal of time apart, they still bring a level of experience that is almost unmatched in the LA Dojo. After all, did WCWC capture the GHC Tag Team Championships twice?

And while either side could become the inaugural NJPW STRONG Tag Team Champions, this could also be the beginning of a war between Team Filthy and TMDK.
