Juice Robinson and Hikuleo will collide in the final match to be added to the NJPW Resurgence card.
In a last-minute addition to the August 14 NJPW Resurgence card, Juice Robinson will take on Hikuleo in singles action.
Both men have spent some time outside of NJPW recently. Juice has been a regular part of IMPACT TV. Hikuleo, on the other hand, recently challenged Lance Archer for the IWGP United States Championship on an episode of AEW Dynamite. Also, a dark match has been announced for Resurgence that will feature six-man tag team action.

Juice vs Hikuleo, six man dark match round out Resurgence card
The card for Resurgence got a surprise late addition this week on NJPW STRONG, as Hikuleo and Juice Robinson was added to the lineup. Hikuleo has been active on AEW Dark, and Dynamite in recent weeks, where he challenged Lance Archer for the IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship, but still walked into competition with Fred Yehi this week without a match at The Torch. Taking to the mic after his victory, BULLET CLUB’s Young Gun demanded competition, and Juice returned to Friday nights to respond to the challenge.
Despite returning to IMPACT in recent weeks, Juice hasn’t stepped inside an NJPW ring since the New Japan Cup. Will Saturday see Robinson’s Resurgence, or will Hikuleo continue his ascent?
Also official for Resurgence will be a six man dark match, only for fans at attendance in the Torch. Adrian Quest’s issues with Barrett Brown continue, as he teams with The DKC and Kevin Knight of the LA Dojo to face Brown, Bateman, and Misterioso. This week on STRONG, Misterioso made a shocking appearance in the corner of .50 Caliber as he went to action against Wheeler Yuta. Now the trio of Misterioso, Bateman and Brown will be looking to make their mark, starting with this special kick off for fans in attendance at Resurgence. Make sure you reach your seats by 7:30PM to catch this bout!
