AEW Stars Set For Upcoming NJPW Independence Day Show AEW/NJPW

Two AEW stars and NJPW Strong are heading to Japan for “Independence Day” at Korakuen Hall in Tokyo on July 4 & 5 2023.

The upcoming Korakuen Hall show will see NJPW Strong heading across the water to Japan with the fallout of the recent NJPW Dominion show being felt.

NJPW has now provided details on their Japanese language site, revealing who will be involved in the two-day event.

With a loss to Will Ospreay costing him a shot at the IWGP United States Championship, NJPW have confirmed that “Murderhawk Monster” Lance Archer will be on the July 4 & 5 show.

It has also been confirmed that Eddie Kingston will face Kenta on July 5 for the STRONG Openweight Championship.

Elsewhere, NJPW fans can see expect to see David Finlay’s newly formed Bullet Club in action with Alex Coughlin & Gabriel Kidd appearing.

The pair of LA Dojo graduates have aligned with Finlay and now call themselves the Bullet Club War Dogs.

Fellow Bullet Club member Dan Moloney will also be in action with the former United Empire member teaming with Clark Connors for the IWGP Junior Tag Championship currently held by Francesco Akira & TJP (Catch 2/2).

At NJPW Dominion, Bryan Danielson set out a challenge to Okada for the upcoming AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door show on June 25.

Following his victory over Lance Archer, Will Ospreay would make his feelings about Canada clear as he set his sights on Kenny Omega and his IWGP United States Championship.

According to a recent report, AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door is close to selling out, although options exist to increase capacity.
