The first of two shows!
Some members of the New Japan Pro Wrestling roster are currently on the West coast for a two day event entitled 'Lion's Break Project 1'. The show is a developmental branch of sorts for New Japan Pro Wrestling where some of the younger stars are pitted against veterans in some of the bouts. Today's show was held at Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California. Competing on the card was Jushin Thunder Liger, ACH, NEVER Openweight Champion Hirooki Goto and it featured a bout between Rocky Romero and the coach Ryusuke Taguchi.
(Below are the results from the show):
1) Karl Fredericks vs. Alex Coughlin - TIE
2) Ryusuke Taguchi def. Rocky Romero
3) David Finlay def. Jushin Thunder Liger
4) Hirooki Goto def. ACH
At Lion's Break day two tomorrow, the headlining match sees David Finlay challenging the IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kenny Omega. To get a look at the updated match card for day two, head over to NJPW1972.com.
