Finals set for New Japan Cup USA tournament

The finals for the New Japan Cup USA tournament have been set.

David Finlay and KENTA will face off on next week’s episode of NJPW Strong. The winner of the match will be eligible for a IWGP United States title match. That title is currently held by AEW’s Jon Moxley.

KENTA defeated Jeff Cobb to advance to the finals after KENTA slipped out of the Tour of the Islands, low blowed Cobb, and rolled him up for the win. Finlay won his match clean, defeating Tama Tonga with his acid drop finish.

In other matches that took place on tonight’s show, Barrett Brown & Logan Riegel defeated Clark Connors & Jordan Clearwater. ACH also returned to the promotion, teaming with Alex Zayne and TJP in a losing effort against PJ Black, Misterioso, and Blake Christian.

NJPW of America have started to air shows on NJPW World since July, focusing on talent currently in the United States.
