NJPW Lion's Break Project 1 results: Kenny Omega vs. David Finlay



New Japan Pro Wrestling was in the United States this weekend for a pair of four-match shows in Anaheim, California. The events took place at the Anaheim Expo Center as part of CharaExpo USA 2018.

The cards featured members of the NJPW roster and three young lions from the promotion's California dojo (Alex Coughlin, Clark Connors, and Karl Fredericks).

Here are the results:

Show one (Saturday) --

- Alex Coughlin and Karl Fredericks went to a 10-minute time limit draw

- Ryusuke Taguchi defeated Rocky Romero with a roll-up

- David Finlay defeated Jushin Thunder Liger with a stunner

- NEVER Openweight Champion Hirooki Goto defeated ACH with the GTR in a non-title match

This was originally supposed to be Goto vs. Jeff Cobb, but Cobb missed the first show due to a flight delay. Finlay & Liger vs. ACH & Clark Connors was turned into the Finlay vs. Liger singles match.

Show two (Sunday) --

- ACH defeated Karl Fredericks with a bridging German suplex

- Jushin Thunder Liger defeated Clark Connors by submission

- Jeff Cobb & Ryusuke Taguchi defeated Rocky Romero & NEVER Openweight Champion Hirooki Goto when Cobb hit the Tour of the Islands on Romero

- IWGP World Heavyweight Champion Kenny Omega defeated David Finlay with the One Winged Angel in a non-title match

Omega got on the microphone and thanked the crowd to close the show.
