New Japan will be airing a series of shows on four consecutive Fridays this month featuring the LA Dojo boys and other affiliated talent stuck in the US. Every show will air at the same time (22:00 or 10:00PM EDT/03:00 GMT) and given that there's two announced matches for the first show I imagine they'll all be fairly short.


Full talent list:
Jeff Cobb
Rocky Romero (CHAOS)
Misterioso
TJP
Karl Fredericks (LA DOJO)
Alex Coughlin (LA DOJO)
Clark Connors (LA DOJO)
Tom Lawlor *NJPW debut
Rust Taylor *NJPW debut
Danny Limelight *NJPW debut
The DKC *NJPW debut




LION'S BREAK COLLISION
July 24th at 22:00 EDT/3:00 BST
Unknown Venue


Tom Lawlor vs. Alex Coughlin
Misterioso vs. Danny Limelught
Rocky Romero and Rust Taylor vs. TJP and Clark Connors
Karl Fredericks vs. Jeff Cobb

Ignoring the fact that heís an ignorant jerk on Twitter, yeah, heís more grounded. But I hope Rocky stiffs him into next week. Once you decide that social distancing is a socialist plot, I think itís time to stop ignoring your Twitter game.

He worked a show here in Sydney against a local guy and just completely ate him up lol. The same guy wrestled orange Cassidy who gave him way more (even lost to him)

But he's been good in njpw. He did junior tag league with a young lion so he lost pretty much all his matches but he was solid

That last suplex was very muscular! Also thereís nothing more wholesome right now than cleaning supply commercials. Good example, young lions.

Karl is (part?) Indigenous, so maybe the fringe and earring are nods to that?
