NJPW and CMLL sending teams to NWA-ROH Crockett Cup


There will be representation from New Japan Pro Wrestling and CMLL when the Crockett Cup returns in April.

The NWA announced today that NJPW and CMLL "will be sending teams" to the Crockett Cup, which is taking place at Cabarrus Arena in Concord, North Carolina on Saturday, April 27. The NWA didn't reveal further details on which NJPW and CMLL teams are going to be in the tournament.

The NWA and Ring of Honor are partnering together to put on the Crockett Cup. NJPW and CMLL are both partners with ROH.

Two teams have already been announced for the Crockett Cup thus far. Crimson & Jax Dane defeated Caleb Konley & Jay Bradley in a qualifying match at the NWA's pop-up event last month, and Villain Enterprises (PCO & Brody King) got a spot in the Crockett Cup by winning ROH's Tag Wars tournament.

Jim Cornette, Joe Galli, and Ian Riccaboni have been announced as the commentary team for the Crockett Cup. The Rock 'n' Roll Express (Ricky Morton & Robert Gibson), The Midnight Express (Bobby Eaton, Dennis Condrey, Stan Lane & Cornette), Nikita Koloff, and Magnum TA will also be making appearances in Concord.
