NEVER Openweight Champion Jay White will face IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion Robbie Eagles in a non-title match in the main event of this week's NJPW Strong Autumn Attack.
White joined the CHAOS faction in 2018 shortly after returning to NJPW after his international excursion, then defected to Bullet Club later in the year. Eagles joined Bullet Club the same year after making his NJPW debut, then turned on White and joined CHAOS in 2019, so there is plenty of backstory to the match.
In the second match, former Team Filthy's Tom Lawlor will defend the NJPW Strong Openweight Championship against Ren Narita.
In the opener, Minoru Suzuki will take on Strong regular Fred Rosser.
The Autumn Attack episodes of Strong were taped on September 25 and September 26 in Garland, Texas.
Strong airs at 8 p.m. Eastern time this Saturday on NJPW World. The show will also be available on demand immediately following airing.
