Team Filthy 10-man tag added to NJPW Resurgence

A ten-man tag featuring Strong Openweight Champion "Filthy" Tom Lawlor has been added to Saturday's NJPW Resurgence card. 

Lawlor, JR Kratos, Jorel Nelson, Royce Isaacs and Danny Limelight will take on Lio Rush, Brody King, Chris Dickinson, Fred Yehi and Yuya Uemura. 

Rush appears to be next in line for a shot at Lawlor's NJPW Strong title, confronting him in a backstage segment following Lawlor's last title defense against Satoshi Kojima. 

The match will also mark the beginning of Uemura's international excursion. He left NJPW last week following a loss to Kazuchika Okada to begin his time abroad. 

Resurgence airs on NJPW World and FITE TV on Saturday, August 14 at 11 p.m. Eastern time. 

Here is the lineup so far: 

  • NEVER Openweight Championship: Jay White (c) vs. David Finlay
  • IWGP United States Championship: Lance Archer (c) vs. Hiroshi Tanahashi
  • Jon Moxley & a mystery partner vs. Doc Gallows & Karl Anderson
  • Fred Rosser, Rocky Romero & Wheeler Yuta vs. TJP, Clark Connors & Ren Narita
  • Karl Fredericks vs. Alex Coughlin
  • Tom Lawlor, JR Kratos, Jorel Nelson, Royce Isaacs & Danny Limelight vs. Lio Rush, Brody King, Chris Dickinson, Fred Yehi & Yuya Uemura
