New Japan Strong is coming to an end.
NJPW star Hiroshi Tanahashi announced in a blog post today that the weekly show would be wrapping up soon.
#NJPWSTRONG, which has been going on for over two years, will come to an end with this recording. It seems that overseas tournaments will be announced in a different form in the future. Members of New Japan Pro-Wrestling World and strong viewers…About 10,000 people, it was a unique view of the world!? Thank you!
NJPW president Takami Ohbari announced at the end of December that NJPW would be “rebuilt in 2023”.
Broadcast on NJPW’s streaming service NJPW World and emanating from the New Japan Dojo in Los Angeles, New Japan Strong aired its first episode on August 7, 2020.
The Strong Openweight Championship and the Strong Openweight Tag Team Championship were created for the show. Fred Rosser is the current Strong Openweight Champion and The Motor City Machine Guns are the reigning Strong Openweight Tag Team Champions.
It is unclear at press time what the future holds for the show and the American arm of NJPW.
