Will Ospreay Match Announced For NJPW Strong Showdown
Minoru Suzuki will also be in action
New Japan Pro Wrestling have announced that self-proclaimed IWGP World Heavyweight Champion Will Ospreay will be in action for NJPW Strong Showdown in Philadelphia.
The two-night event is set for October 16 and 17, with Ospreay taking on Alex Zane on night two, whilst Minoru Suzuki will be in action on night one against Chris Dickinson.
NJPW made the announcement via the following press release:
“NIGHT ONE, October 16: Dickinson vs Suzuki! A first time ever singles encounter will see the Dirty Daddy Chris Dickinson go toe to toe with Minoru Suzuki. At one point scheduled for independent events before the COVID pandemic disrupted the entire wrestling world, NJPW STRONG can now bring about this fated dream match. Dickinson is as respected as they come as a striker and grappler, but can he match up with the King? This is an encounter you will need to witness live and in person at the 2300 Arena next month!
“NIGHT TWO October 17: Zayne vs Ospreay! Night two in Philadelphia will see Alex Zayne in singles action against “IWGP World Heavyweight Champion” Will Ospreay. Alex Zayne was a viral sensation when he first got the opportunity to compete in NJPW STRONG, and after a brief sojourn to WWE, returns to STRONG with a huge test awaiting him. Whether his title claims are legitimate or not, Ospreay is indisputably one of the best wrestlers in the world, but could Zayne surprise the Commonwealth kingpin in Philly?”
