NJPW has announced a new series of events that will take place on NJPW Strong.

Following the conclusion of the Fighting Spirit Unleashed series, NJPW has announced that its Friday night NJPW Strong show will play host to the Lion's Break Crown tournament. 

The single-elimination tournament will feature eight competitors, described by NJPW in this video as "the hottest young talents that we can find anywhere." 

As was the case with the Fighting Spirit Unleashed tour, Strong will be comprised of a series of Road to events, culminating with the NJPW Lion's Break Crown event itself. 

The first Road to Lion's Break Crown event will air on Friday, September 18 at 10 p.m. Eastern time on NJPW World. That show will be headlined by a tag match featuring ACH and Alex Zayne vs. Guerrillas of Destiny (Tama Tonga and Tanga Loa).  

Further information as to specific talent involved in the Lions Break Crown tournament and how long the series will last has yet to be released.
