Welcome back to the NJPW STRONG Synopsis for 9/03/22, where we break down everything happening this Saturday night on NJPW World. The NJPW LA Dojo has been on fire the past few weeks, putting on classics from the Grady Cole Center in Charlotte, North Carolina. However, all good things must come to an end, and so must the High Alert series.

The series started with Aussie Open becoming the inaugural NJPW STRONG Openweight Tag Team Champions. Appropriately, it will end with a title defense by reigning NJPW STRONG Openweight Champion “Mr. No Days Off” Fred Rosser. But that’s not all! Here’s all the action you can expect this Saturday night on an all-new NJPW STRONG!

The first match on Saturday night’s card features a pair of NJPW STRONG returns! IMPACT Wrestling’s John Skyler returns after a crushing defeat at the hands of Big Damo back at Strong Style Evolved. He’ll be looking to improve his standing with the NJPW STRONG roster when he takes on Lucky Ali, who is making his first appearance since last year’s Autumn Attack.

On night 1, Ali teamed with Kevin Knight and The DKC to defeat Jordan Clearwater, AJC, and Will Allday. While only 1-0, Lucky Ali claims on Twitter to be “undefeated in NJPW.” John Skyler will be looking to break this “undefeated streak” and secure some momentum for himself in the NJPW STRONG rankings.

While still outweighing Skyler, Ali is 100lbs lighter than Skyler’s previous adversary on STRONG. Will that be the deciding factor when John Skyler tangles with Lucky Ali this Saturday night?

Eddie Kingston vs. Jake Something

We’re in for another world first in this Saturday night’s heavyweight bout. Jake Something left his mark in the NJPW STRONG ring after his debut match against Big Bad Brody King. However, Jake Something still has to pick up a win in NJPW STRONG. His opponent this Saturday is Eddie Kingston, who is developing a resume of his own with the LA Dojo.

Following a tag team loss to Suzuki-Gun with Jon Moxley, Kingston has racked up a string of high-profile victories over Gabriel Kidd, Fred Yehi, and Daniel Garcia. Kingston will certainly come out of the gate swinging when he faces the up-and-coming Jake Something this Saturday night.

After he captured the NJPW STRONG Openweight Championship from “Filthy” Tom Lawlor, Fred Rosser has been living up to his moniker “Mr. No Days Off.” Since winning the belt, all of Rosser’s matches on STRONG have been NJPW STRONG Openweight Championship defenses.

He’s also been a role model, bringing out the best in his partners and opponents. In the finale of the Ignition series, Fred Rosser teamed with Kevin Knight and “The Ace of New Japan” Hiroshi Tanahashi in a losing effort against BULLET CLUB. Later that night, while he was consoling Knight, who took the pin, Fred Yehi barged in to challenge Rosser for the title.

Fred Yehi has been one of the major success stories in the short history of NJPW STRONG. From his first appearance at last year’s Ignition series, “The Savageweight” has impressed in every match. Yehi has also been a great presence in the locker room, lending technical expertise to many of the Young Lions in the LA Dojo.

However, a recent string of high-profile victories over BATEMAN and Stray Dog Army have encouraged Yehi to strike out on his own. This Saturday night, “The Savageweight” is not only out to claim the NJPW STRONG Openweight Championship but also to prove that he, not Fred Rosser, is the true workhorse of NJPW STRONG.
