Jay White vs. Wheeler Yuta announced for NJPW Strong


NJPW has revealed the full lineup for Saturday's Fighting Spirit Unleashed episode of Strong. 

Jay White will face Wheeler Yuta on the show. White's NEVER Openweight Championship will not be on the line in the non-title affair. 

In the show's main event, Fred Rosser will face Ren Narita. Narita is coming off a victory over Karl Fredericks on Strong's LA Dojo Showcase 2 episode. This contest was set up on that show when Rosser came to ringside to congratulate Narita, but Narita refused to shake Rosser's hand. 

In the opener, Yuji Nagata and Yuya Uemura will team against Kevin Knight and The DKC. Uemura scored the pinfall over Danny Limelight in a ten-man tag at NJPW Resurgence in his last match. 

The Fighting Spirit Unleashed episodes of Strong were taped at Thunder Studios in Long Beach, California on August 23. 

Here is Saturday's lineup:
