NJPW held a set of Lion’s Break Collision TV tapings yesterday in the Los Angeles area, according to PWInsider. The show was a closed set with social distancing rules in place and about nine or ten matches were filmed.
The roster featured American talent, including former MLW Champion Tom Lawlor, making his debut for the company. Others who wrestled were: Karl Fredericks, Misterioso, Alex Coughlin, Clark Connors, Rocky Romero, TJP, and Jeff Cobb.
No word yet on when these matches will air.
As noted, NJPW will return to live shows in Japan, beginning tomorrow.
The New Japan Cup will start on June 16 and run through July 3.
Update: PWInsider has since provided more details about the tapings, which took place at the Oceanville Pavilion in Port Hueneme. Dave Marquez’s Championship Wrestling from Hollywood handled production for the show that featured 11 matches in total.
MLW was aware of Tom Lawlor’s appearance for NJPW. He had matches against Rocky Romero and Alex Coughlin.
Also, Tyler Bateman faced Brody King and the match is expected to air on a future episode of Ring of Honor TV.
