New Japan Pro-Wrestling has announced that IMPACT Wrestling X Division Champion Josh Alexander will make his NJPW debut this Friday. He’ll be in action in a singles match against Alex Coughlin on NJPW Strong.
Here’s the official announcement from NJPW’s official website:
“Last week on STRONG, Alex Coughlin fell short in a hard fought battle with BULLET CLUB’s gargantuan Young Gun Hikuleo. Far from letting the loss get the better of him however, Coughlin instead said he had the time of his life, and demanded that he face all comers going forward. This week then, the first match in Coughlin’s open challenge match series will put him opposite IMPACT Wrestling’s X Division Champion, Josh Alexander.
With both Coughlin and Alexander extremely proficient amateur grapplers, this is an excellent matchup on paper. Alexander has beaten El Phantasmo on IMPACT programming recently, but could Coughlin upset the Walking Weapon?”
