NJPW STRONG: RIVALS Night 2 Full Card
Kevin Knight vs. Hikuleo
Kevin Knight will represent the LA Dojo in the first match this weekend. He will take on Hikuleo of the Bullet Club. The strength and size advantage will go to Hikuleo in this one, while the pure athleticism advantage will go to Knight. This should be a closely contested matchup. Hikuleo has won his last three matches on STRONG, including a recent singles victory over Cody Chhun. Knight on the other hand dropped his last tag team match in a STRONG ring and is looking to get back in the win column. Find out who gets the win, this weekend on STRONG.
Ariya Daivari vs. Kevin Blackwood
Kevin Blackwood will step into a STRONG ring for the first time ever when he faces Ariya Daivari this week on STRONG. Daivari has been on the road to changing his wrestling style. He is trying to wrestler a more honest and clean style that doesn’t resort to underhanded tactics. This did not help him much the last time he was in a STRONG ring as he lost to Alex Zayne. Will he continue to wrestle an honest style? Can he get a win in a STRONG ring without using underhanded tactics? Find out this week on RIVALS Night 2.
US of Jay Open Challenge
Jay White will host another edition of the US of Jay Open Challenge in the main event of RIVALS Night 2. So far we have seen Christopher Daniels and Jay Lethal of AEW answer the challenge. So far White is undefeated in the open challenge. Will we see another AEW star answer the challenge? Will Jay White remain undefeated in the open challenge? Find out this weekend on NJPW Strong.
