NJPW notes: FTR, October Strong PPV event planned

Rocky Romero broke some news about some big U.S. plans for NJPW this year.

During his talk with our Denise Salcedo detailing all the inside information on how AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door came together, Rocky Romero provided some information that will make U.S. NJPW fans very happy.

The first involves this month's Starrcast weekend that includes NJPW Strong Music City Mayhem on July 30th.

Romero said they have signed some "really big stars" for the event and while not directly saying FTR will be on the show, he told Salcedo, "Maybe you’ll see some IWGP Tag Team Champions there...maybe? Possibly?"

FTR, also ROH & AAA Tag Team Champions, won the IWGP Tag Team titles from Jeff Cobb & Great-O-Khan in a winner take all three-way Sunday that also included Romero & Trent Beretta.

He also said a few big names have been signed for their High Alert event later this month in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Romero then revealed that NJPW Strong will be holding a PPV in October on the East Coast. No other details were given as the deals haven't been signed, but that they should be soon.
