Four matches announced for NJPW Strong Autumn Attack night two


NJPW has revealed the full lineup for this week's episode of Strong.

In the second match on Saturday's show, Rocky Romero and Ryusuke Taguchi will tag against West Coast Wrecking Crew, Team Filthy's Jorel Nelson and Royce Isaacs. 

In the opener, Alex Coughlin's challenge series will continue one-on-one against Chris Dickinson.
