The pandemic has caused some wild times that have forced companies to get creative. One company doesn't really want the world to know that it would appear.
Fightful reported recently that New Japan Strong had filmed in giant clusters throughout the last half of the year, as to limit risk, cost and the like. Fightful Select has learned that NJPW wasn't thrilled about that news emerging.
After we'd reported that New Japan USA ended up mass taping content for NJPW Strong, we later heard that the company wasn't happy about that emerging, and asked talent to not reveal any more about the taping process. When we reached out to another person involved, they told us that they didn't really see the negative associated with revealing that the tapings happened in huge blocks, due to the nature of the world and the things that everyone had to work around
You can see NJPW Strong on Fridays on NJPW World.
