On last night’s NJPW STRONG we saw the surprise New Japan Pro Wrestling debut of the “Dirty Daddy” Chris Dickinson as he sided with Team Filthy. Dickinson debuted as X alongside JR Kratos and Danny Limelight in a winning effort over Brody King, Logan Riegel, and Sterling Riegel. This debut has been hotly anticipated as Dickinson has long proven himself to be one of the best wrestlers in the US.

Chris Dickinson is a long-time veteran who got his star mainly wrestling for Jersey All Pro Wrestling (JAPW), Absolute Intense Wrestling (AIW), and Beyond Wrestling in the late ’00s. From there Dickinson became a journeyman who wrestled all over the United States for a number of the top independent companies like Combat Zone Wrestling (CZW), Game Changer Wrestling (GCW), House Of Glory, and he even wrestled in Europe for Westside Xtreme Wrestling (wXw). His most high profile run came in EVOLVE where he featured as a member of Catch Point. Here he became a two-time tag team champion alongside Jaka, the duo’s second reign is the longest run in the title’s history at 400 days.
