In the main event, JR Kratos and Danny Limelight of Team Filthy will team with a mystery partner against Brody King, Sterling Riegel, and Logan Riegel. This will be the second consecutive NJPW Strong main event for King, who lost to KENTA on night two of Detonation on the December 18 episode. 

Rocky Romero will take on The DKC in Friday's semi-main, while Clark Connors will face NJPW L.A. Dojo recruit Kevin Knight in the opener. Knight was previously seen in NJPW at the Super J-Cup 2020 event, where he teamed with Ren Narita in a losing effort against KENTA and Hikuleo.
