AEW's Eddie Kingston to headline NJPW Strong


Three matches have been announced for this week's episode of NJPW Strong. 

In the show's main event, AEW's Eddie Kingston will face Gabriel Kidd. This will be Kingston's second appearance on Strong, his first being in a main event street fight at the NJPW Showdown tapings in Philadelphia in October, teaming with Jon Moxley against Minoru Suzuki and Lance Archer.

In the opener, it's a battle of initials, as TJP faces The DKC.
