STRONG Openweight Championship Match Announced For 5/15 NJPW Collision

NJPW has announced a title match for their 'Collision' event on Sunday, May 15.

After losing his match on the latest episode of STRONG, Fred Rosser was granted the Championship match he had been seeking, but with one condition. Tom Lawlor has agreed to defend his title this Sunday, but if he wins, Rosser's career on STRONG is over.

NJPW STRONG Results (5/28): JONAH, Jeff Cobb, Blake Christian, And More In Action

The updated card can be seen below.

From NJPW:

After months of campaigning, Fred Rosser will finally have one last shot at the STRONG Openweight Championship Sunday in Philadelphia. The opportunity came despite Rosser losing a handicap match this week on STRONG to the West Coast Wrecking Crew, after he showed his resolve by shaving his own head. Lawlor would again deny Mr. No Days Off his title shot before granting it on the condition that Rosser’s career on STRONG ends if he loses.

It’s title versus loser leaves STRONG Sunday in Philly!
