I’ve been looking forward to this episode of NJPW STRONG because the Lion’s Break Crown tournament begins. The tournament features some of wrestling’s hottest talent, including AEE favorite Danny Limelight for example. It’s a packed night because we have four tournament matches. So who will make a name for themselves in NJPW? Here are your NJPW STRONG episode 8 results.
1) Logan Riegel def The DKC
The DCK was in control for most of the match due to his strategy of attacking Riegel’s arm. However, Riegel reversed a suplex into a pin for the victory. Riegel then gave away the finish to the next match in his post-match interview. I don’t necessarily believe it’s his fault because these shows are taped. Blame the editor. (6m 31)
2) Clark Connors def Jordan Clearwater
Well, we knew Connors was winning because of Reigel’s promo. Connors certainly had his game face on. Connors did most of his damage while running the ropes. He won as a result of a Boston Crab. (6m 11s)
3) Danny Limelight def Barrett Brown 👍match of the night👍
This was a fun match because of all the innovative moves. Limelight was particularly impressive because he avoided a corner attack by walking the middle rope. In the end, Limelight defeated Brown with his Symbiote DDT. (9m 31s)
4) Blake Christian def Adrian Quest
This match was different from the rest because it had a fast pace from the bell. Quest was in control but lost an exchange in the corner. This resulted in Christian hitting his Elia from the top rope and advancing to the semifinals. (6m 49s)
That’s all for NJPW STRONG episode 8 results but stay tuned to ALL EVERYTHING ENTERTAINMENT for your Lion’s Break Crown news.
