Today NJPW has announced the start of a weekly show that will highlight new talent for the organization. Future talent from the Lions Break training project in California will take on current NJPW talent. The show will air on Friday Nights at 10 pm starting July 3rd and will be called Lions Break Collision. The main prospect that will be debuted is former UFC Fighter and MLW champion Filthy Tom Lawlor. I see this as a great introduction to the NJPW product for people in the states who aren’t necessarily familiar with the product and it’s also a way for the brand to grow even more than it has.
Here’s the lineup for the first episode of Collision.
Tom Lawlors debut
Clark Connors vs Alex Coughlin
Jeff Cobb & Rocky Romero vs TJP & Karl Fredericks
Again, this is fantastic news!! Be sure to check out Lions Gate Collision!
