The NEW BEGINNING in USA card has been released and some exciting key matches have been arranged.
2019/01/30 – Los Angles, CA
On January 30th, in Los Angeles, California Roppongi Vice re-unite for one night only! Rocky Romero will team-up once again with his former tag team partner, Beretta. The duo are one of the most legendary junior tag team partnerships in recent history, having won the titles 4 times, most recently in April 2017. Later that year, Beretta moved up to the heavyweight division and their partnership dissolved. They take on Juice Robinson and Tracy Williams of the newly formed Lifeblood faction.
Los Angeles also sees Chuckie T take on David Finlay in a special singles match. The two men have unfinished business as Chuckie T has been repeatedly abusing Finlay over the course of the past few months, showing his willingness to cause havoc, even if it has cost his team the match. Finlay for his part is eager to rise to the occasion after a very successful 2018.
Karl Fredericks of the NJPW LA Dojo will face the ROH World Television Champion, Jeff Cobb in the 5th match. Cobb’s strength and speed are uncanny and Fredericks will face a tough challenge in taking down the former olympian.
2019/02/01 – Charlotte, NC
On Febraury 1st in Charlotte, North Carolina, the IWGP US Championship will be on the line as Beretta challenges the 5th Champion, Juice Robinson. Beretta was initially scheduled to challenge the 4th champion, Cody, last year, but the match was postponed due to Cody’s untimely injury. After Juice regained the Championship at Wrestle Kingdom, Beretta challenged him backstage in a good-natured confrontation. Juice’s first reign was disappointing for him, as he failed to make a single successful defense of the title, but he seems confident going into the first defense of his second reign that he’ll be able to make this defense much more successful.
In the semi-main event, Rocky Romero will be teaming-up with his CHAOS stablemate, Chuckie-T as they take on David Finlay and Tracy Williams.
Elsewhere on the card, we see a special match as Alex Coughlin faces an uphill battle in a special singles match against 3-time IWGP Tag Team Champion and member of the Killer Elite Quad, Davey Boy Smith Jr. The Great O-Kharn will also debut in NJPW, as he faces another new-comer in Tracer X
2019/02/02 – Nashville, TN
The final night of the tour will be held on February 2nd in Nashville, Tennessee and is scheduled to go out with a bang as we play host to a CHAOS vs. LIFEBLOOD Elimination Match. Rocky Romero will team up with the Best Friends as they take on FinJuice and Tracy Williams in a true test of the new faction’s strength. The Best Friends fought FinJuice in World Tag League on 7th December, where the match ended controversially as Chuckie T was disqualified for using foreign objects on Finlay and choking him with his belt. Whilst it was not unusual for Chuckie to attack his opponents in this brutal manner, it was on this night where he went one step further, pile-driving the referee. When they fought again in New Year Dash!! earlier this year, Chuckie was similarly erratic, once again beating Finlay brutally before being disqualified. Whilst CHAOS and the Main Unit have had a rapprochement in recent months, the capricious Chuckie T has proved to be an obstacle in any true burying of the hatchet.
Nashville also sees a Special Single Match between Brody King and Jeff Cobb.
In the 5th match, young Lion, Clark Conners will also be taking on former IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion Marty Scurll in what is sure to be a tough match for the LA dojo trainee.
The first matches will feature Young Lions from the LA Dojo in singles matches against each other
