NJPW STRONG Synopsis for 10/22/22 – Autumn Attack: Week 3

With strong showings from NJPW STRONG Openweight Tag Team Champions Aussie Open and NJPW STRONG Openweight Champion Fred Rosser, it’ll be hard to top last week’s episode as we preview  NJPW STRONG Synopsis for 10/22/22.

While Kyle Fletcher and Mark Davis managed to topple the powerful duo of JR Kratos and Danny Limelight, Fred Rosser went to a double count-out with Chris Dickinson. It seems the NJPW STRONG Openweight Championship feud is just getting started. While last week’s episode will be a tough act to follow, there’s still much more action from the two-night event at Sam’s Town in Las Vegas, Nevada.

This week we will see two of the LA Dojo’s finest face a pair of relative newcomers, a mentor and protégé come to blows, and a former IWGP World Heavyweight Champion in action. Let’s get right into it, breaking down this Saturday night’s card in this week’s edition of the NJPW STRONG Synopsis.

When last we saw Royce Isaacs and Jorel Nelson in action, the tag team representatives of Team Filthy came up short in championship action against Aussie Open. This week, the West Coast Wrecking Crew will be looking to reclaim their lost momentum in a match against a new pairing in NJPW STRONG.

Firstly, the returning Jakob Austin Young, who we last saw at Fighting Spirit Unleashed. That night, J.A.Y. put in a strong showing before ultimately falling at the hands of Ren Narita. Lessons learned, Young has decided to turn to the growing NJPW STRONG tag team division, and he’s brought an interesting partner.

Greg Sharpe is a 13-year West coast indie veteran, who trained with the CZW Dojo, the CMLL Wrestling school, and Brian Kendrick. Will his aggressive, high-flying offense lend Jakob Austin Young the advantage they need to defeat the power-focused West Coast Wrecking Crew?

It was set to be the Cinderella story of the NJPW STRONG Openweight Tag Team Championship Tournament. After Karl Fredericks bowed out due to injuries, Christopher Daniels needed a new partner. In stepped Young Lion Yuya Uemura, looking for opportunities to impress in these early days of his US excursion.

The misfit pairing of Daniels and Uemura defied all odds and made it to the tournament finals, only to lose to Aussie Open. In a rematch with second-round opponents The Mighty Don’t Kneel, Daniels’s frustrations boiled over, delivering a low blow to his partner and costing them the match.

This Saturday night Yuya Uemura seeks revenge and a chance to strike out on his own. But will The Fallen Angel’s decades of experience prove too great a challenge for the ambitious young lion?

Rocky Romero vs. Shingo Takagi

Former IWGP World Heavyweight Champion Shingo Takagi came to NJPW STRONG looking to get his hands on El Phantasmo, the man who’s been assaulting Takagi in recent weeks. However, on his arrival, the current provisional KOPW champion learned that ELP was elsewhere. He’ll have to wait until the King Of Pro Wrestling show in New York City to get his hands on El Phantasmo.

Instead, Takagi faces former Jr Heavyweight Champion and tag team specialist Rocky Romero. Having feuded with El Phantasmo and Bullet Club before, Romero knows how to get the better of ELP. Perhaps he’ll be able to give The Dragon a hint or two ahead of their match at Rumble on 44th Street.

Regardless of Romero’s intentions, he has quite the challenge before him when he faces “The Dragon” Shingo Takagi on this Saturday night’s edition of NJPW STRONG.
