NJPW announces schedule change for this week's Strong

This Saturday's NJPW Strong will no longer be a two-hour episode.

NJPW has announced a change of plans for this Saturday's episode of Strong.

Earlier this week, it was announced that this week's Strong would be a special two-hour episode of the show. Those plans have been scrapped, with it now set to be a standard one-hour edition.

The episode will feature three matches that were taped at NJPW Lonestar Shootout in Dallas during WrestleMania week.

NJPW Strong, Saturday, May 7, 8 p.m. Eastern time on NJPW World --

  • Tom Lawlor, JR Kratos & Royce Isaacs vs. Fred Rosser, Alex Coughlin & The DKC
  • JONAH vs. Blake Christian
  • Hikuleo & Chris Bey vs. Bateman & Barrett Brown

Content from last month's Mutiny tapings in Los Angeles was supposed to start airing on the two-hour Strong episode. The three matches will instead air on the Friday, May 13 edition of Strong. That episode is being moved to Friday due to NJPW's Capital Collision pay-per-view taking place in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, May 14.

The lineup for the May 13 Strong episode is:

NJPW Strong, Friday, May 13, 8 p.m. Eastern time on NJPW World --

  • Jay White vs. Hikuleo
  • Handicap match: Fred Rosser vs. Royce Isaacs & Jorel Nelson
  • Rocky Romero, Adrian Quest & Alex Coughlin vs. JR Kratos, Black Tiger & Danny Limelight
