NJPW STRONG To Be "Rebuilt"

Changes coming to NJPW STRONG

Following speculation about the show's future, NJPW President Takami Ohbari has announced NJPW STRONG will be "rebuilt" in 2023, noting the show will focus on quality over quantity.

"#njpwSTRONG will be rebuilt to adapt external and internal environment. We started it when the strict lockdown was forced, so we focused obviously on 'continuity'. Fortunately, fan and we are about to overcome the pandemic. We should now focus on 'quality' rather than quantity," Ohbari tweeted.

The weekly TV show premiered in August 2020 and has been produced by the American division of New Japan Pro-Wrestling. The show has its own titles with the STRONG Openweight Championship and STRONG Openweight Tag Team Titles. Along with sporadic appearances from NJPW's Japanese stars, the likes of JR Kratos, Fred Rosser, West Coast Wrecking Crew, and LA Dojo talents have been regulars on the show. 

The announcement from Ohbari comes after AEW President Tony Khan revealed in December that New Japan would be involved with the relaunch of HonorClub, although no details about their involvement were revealed at the time.
