Hiromu Takahashi vs. Clark Connors is one of the matches set for July 24 in Charlotte.

The first three official matches for NJPW Strong: High Alert have been announced. 

Hiromu Takahashi will make his NJPW Strong debut, taking on Clark Connors. Hiromu won the Best of the Super Juniors tournament this year, but lost in challenging Taiji Ishimori for the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship at today's New Japan Road event.

In the third official bout for Charlotte, Bullet Club's Hikuleo will face the returning Big Damo, formerly Killian Dain in WWE. 

The finals of a tournament to crown the first NJPW Strong Openweight Tag Team Champions will also take place at High Alert.
