Kevin Knight to debut in place of injured Karl Fredericks Saturday night
The full card is now final for Super J-Cup 2020, coming up Saturday night, with big tag team matches alongside epic tournament action!
An injury to Karl Fredericks will see him unable to compete on the night’s card. In his place will be the debuting Kevin Knight alongside Ren Narita opposite KENTA and Hikuleo. A 23 year old native of Atlanta, Georgia, Knight was a track and field athlete in high school and played American football in college before receiving his initial wrestling training at the Buddy Wayne Academy. Knight participated in the September 2019 LA Dojo tryout, and joined the LA Dojo this July. In light of Fredericks’ injury, Katsuyori Shibata has agreed to a debut for the 183cm, 91kg Knight.
Knight will be alongside Ren Narita, in Narita’s first appearance on NJPW World in over a year. How far has Ren Narita progressed? Certainly Hikuleo and KENTA offer a tall test in front of a worldwide audience.
Also official for Super J-Cup is Fred Rosser and Rocky Romero taking on Danny Limelight and JR Kratos of Team Filthy. Romero and Rosser have been battling Team Filthy for weeks on NJPW STRONG, and now just 24 hours removed from their respective clashes at Detonation, this issue continues.
Taking center stage though is Super J-Cup itself. Eight spectacular junior heavyweights in one single elimination tournament that you cannot afford to miss! It all kicks off at 10e/9c Saturday on NJPW World and FITE!
