Episode 8 of NJPW Strong brings us the first round of Lion’s Break: Crown. A breakout tournament, for the lack of better description. Who advances?
Now I’m still very much of the same mindset I had last week. There is an obvious gap between skill and quality almost cutting the field perfectly in half. I suppose we’ll get to see how match ups effect second round advancement, and if there’s any surprising upsets.
Clark Connors has to be the assumed favorite, but with the fact they’ve been trying to build a story around Danny Limelight, I won’t be surprised if Limelight upsets Connors in the Finals.
Let’s see if my prediction is ruined immediately!
- The DKC vs Logan Riegel: Riegel wins via Roll-Up – ** 1/2
- Clark Connors vs Jordan Clearwater: Clark wins via Boston Crab – ***
- Barrett Brown vs Danny Limelight: Limelight wins via Triangle Tornado DDT – *** 1/4
- Blake Christian vs Adrian Quest: Christian wins via Elia – *** 1/2
The DKC vs Logan Riegel
Ugh, I think we know how much I hate DKC and this doesn’t do much to change my perspective on him. Riegel tries to go hold for hold, but apparently DKC is proficient in grappling or something. I guess between yelling and trying not to swallow his own tongue, he learned a joint lock or two.
At least he focused on the arm that was banged up last week in the 8 man tag, so for the better portion of the match Reigel was on his heels and with only one arm. Things are looking like a DKC victory, but Riegel gets lucky, sneaks a Roll-Up and manages to steal the victory. A very basic match, with simple psychology, DKC still looks like an idiot in the ring though.
Clark Connors vs Jordan Clearwater
Similar to the first match, we see a slower pace with Clearwater working a Top Wristlock and Armbar variation. Clark gets worked over a lot early on, Clearwater hits a few Leg Drops, and just a lot of offense focused on the neck and upper body area, most likely setting up for his Big Boot finish. When Clark finally gets some space, we get a load of the intensity he’s known for. A violent Pounce, a dodge of the Midas Touch, with a rope running Spear followed with the Young Lion special Boston Crab.
It was simple, but it was an improvement on the first since both were more active and much better in the ring.
Barrett Brown vs Danny Limelight
The way the two men worked the match was a little different than we’ve seen so far on Strong. Brown responded with a cold but wild look in his eyes, and Limelight actually showed off a few spots to validate his arrogant persona. Most of this match was built around Limelight shining, and Brown was relegated to a few burst oriented moves like a well timed Single Leg Drop Kick, Barrel Snap Suplex in the corner and a nice Wheelbarrow Facebuster. But Limelight either kicked out or found answers. The way he dodged a corner attack by walking the middle rope like something Fenix or El Phantasmo would do, and then hitting a Springboard Lariat, was a cool spot.
Brown uses a desperate Uraken, but misses completely, allowing Limelight to rock him and then connect with a triangle style Tornado DDT for the win. Probably the best Limelight match I’ve seen.
Blake Christian vs Adrian Quest
This was a blistering pace from the onset that rarely slowed down. Starting with Christian throwing Cradle and Roll-Up attempts at Quest; Quest kicked out, only to eat a huge lariat and then a back of the head dropkick with violent intent. Quest wasn’t going to take that and roll over, so we see great Junior style action of Frankensteiners and quick strikes.
Christian trips up Quest, plants a hand down and hits a low break dance variation of a bottom rope 619. Christian goes to the top, but Quest interrupts with a Dropkick. At this point commentary starts trying to explain he was hampered by an oblique injury prior to the match, so when Quest focuses on the chest and ribs, Christian sells like he’s being murdered (in a good way).
Living up to his all heart moniker, Christian manages to knock down Quest and hit a Springboard Moonsault, but can’t make a timely cover since he sells the ribs and crawls to the pin. With all the damage you’d think Quest had this in the bag eventually, but when an opening hits, Christian hits his Reverse Twisting Splash, for the pinfall.
Overall Score: 6.25/10
Now this was a fairly solid episode when it came to wrestling and they even added some of the backstage promos for the winners, so it was a different feel. I still have the ever present issue where this feels more like a UWN Prime Time episode and not New Japan. There was nothing that connected this to NJPW save for the logo on the mat and I suppose Clark Connors (though Karl Fredericks was on the past UWN episode).
So the fact we’re going to be getting a banged up Logan Riegel vs Clark Connors, and Danny Limelight vs Blake Christian; I guess we’ll see how this goes. They did say next week there will be an 8 man match including KENTA, Jay White and Jeff Cobb; so that also tells me that some of this was filmed a little bit ago.
Again, not a bad episode, I just find myself caring less and less about this since it’s further and further away from resembling a real NJPW show.

Jeet crawls over after Styles but Styles rolls away. Jeet follows Styles to a corner, puts him back on the top rope and then climbs back up after him. Omos creeps close, and grabs a foot to anchor Styles as Jeet goes for the Super Belly2Belly! Jeet crashes ‘n’ burns, Styles hops down to aim from the apron, PHENOMENAL FOREARM! Cover, Styles wins!
Winner: AJ Styles, by pinfall
A huge assist to Omos, and it’s Jeet who gets beat! But will AJ Styles be able to stay phenomenal if he needs help? And if Jeet pushed Styles this far, will we be cruising down #JeetStreet soon enough?
Indus Sher speaks.
“I will tell you something that you may already know.” Rinku was India’s very first pro baseball player, but there is no better feeling than being a WWE superstar. The dream started when he turned 15 and he wished to change his family’s life for the better. India knows Saurav already as a star of a Top 5 TV series, but now he is living a dream in the WWE. They are here representing their country, and had an immediate connection when they met. They are brothers as well as tag team partners, and have the pride of 1.3 BILLION people behind them!

The Great Khali speaks.
He says hello to his people and says he has been so proud to see this newest crop of superstars coming from India, and those we saw already tonight in Jeet Rama, Giant Zanjeer, Dilsher Shanky and Guru Raaj. Have a Happy Republic Day!

The Queen had Sareena’s back and that was enough to turn the tide! Will this big victory be a big boost to Sareena’s young wrestling career?
Ric Flair is here!
The Nature Boy loves a good party, so of course he’s here for the Superstar Spectacle! He’s also here for the main event with the WWE World Champion and the Modern Day Maharaja!
Kavita Devi speaks.
The first Indian female superstar in the WWE, she did things her way in the Mae Young Classic. “Growing up, I wasn’t supposed to have a dream. When I grew up, little girls like me had nobody to look up to.” There are thousands of girls looking up to her now, and that motivates her to keep going. Follow her into the future, because if her dream can come true, so can yours!
Six Man Tag: Drew McIntyre & Indus Sher w/ Ric Flair VS Jinder Mahal & The Bollywood Boyz!
There are some rather interesting reunions here. Once upon a time, the Scottish Warrior and the Modern Day Maharaja were part of a Three Man Band! And more recently, Samir & Sunil Singh were once the sidekicks to WWE’s first Indian WWE Champion. The Superstar Spectacle brings them all back together, will Suarav and Rinku be powerful back-up for McIntyre on this historic day?
Ric Flair is honored to be here for this first-ever Superstar Spectacle. “Everyone knows that the WWE brings the world together like no one else.” Ric is so excited to see the members of the WWE Universe from India to be on the ThunderDome screens. But before he introduces this great Six Man Tag main event, Ric wants to wish everyone a very happy Republic Day, “WOO~!” With that, Mahal & the Bollywood Boyz make their entrance together, and Mahal has a mic of his own as Samir & Sunil film. “If there is one thing we should be celebrating, it is the return of the Modern Day Maharrrrraja, Jinder Mahal!” The now 1.4 billion have tuned in to see HIM! But here comes McIntyre!
McIntyre has a mic and says, “Jinder Mahal, my old buddy, welcome back.” No one is happier to see him than McIntyre. But there are some things you don’t do around here. First: you don’t interrupt the limosine ridin’, jet flyin’, kiss stealin’, wheelin’ dealin’ son of a gun, Ric Flair! Second: this isn’t about Mahal, but about the WWE and India! The time for talking is over, the time for fighting begins! Mahal has a trio, McIntyre has created his own Three Man Band of DESTRUCTION! Introducing Rinku and Saurav, INDUS SHER! The “Indian Tigers” are back!
The trios sort out, and Mahal steps up to McIntyre. They stand off, but then Mahal tags out to Sunil! Sunil tags out to Samir! McIntyre dares Mahal to get back in but Samir SLAPS McIntyre first!

Winners: Drew McIntyre & Indus Sher, by pinfall
A powerful victory for Rinku, Saurav and the Scottish Warrior! Triple H and the other superstars walk out to join them in the ring to not only celebrate this victory, but to celebrate Republic Day and the bright future pro-wrestling has in India!
A very fun special here, with great showings from every one of the young prospects out of India. Now obviously Balor and Styles were both going to win their matches, but they gave Guru Raaj and Jeet Rama good showings, especially with Jeet losing because of minor interference from Omos. Jeet is a legitimate national champion in Indian Pehlwani/Kushti wrestling, he can and should be a frontrunner in the singles division for “NXT India” or whatever it’ll be called. It was also cool to have a musical act, much like other big WWE events have, including Sunday’s Royal Rumble having Bad Bunny.
And then we got great wins for the Indian superstars in the tag matches. The 8 Man was a lot of fun because Zanjeer and Shanky are definitely giants. It definitely works that Charlotte helped Sareena get out of the Sharpshooter and the pin, Sareena is still too new to really get the win herself off of two very accomplished women in Natty and Bayley. The Six Man was great just to see Mahal back, as well as Indus Sher as they were serving some time-out punishment after one of the two went and spoiled Adam Cole VS Keith Lee, Winner Takes All. But Indus Sher is a big, strong team, they and McIntyre were of course winning, I’m sure Indus Sher can find themselves at the top of whatever tag division they’ll be in.
