Bullet Club (KENTA, El Phantasmo & Hikuleo) defeated Fred Rosser, ACH & Blake Christian

***


KENTA has a brand new red “right-to-challenge” briefcase, one that is significantly less damaged than what we’ve seen in recent weeks.


El Phantasmo talked about facing Lio Rush after the match. Each member of BC said they weren’t scared of Lio Rush at all ahead of Rush’s coming NJPW Strong debut.


Final thoughts:

Tonight’s episode of Strong was, well, strong. It wasn’t as exciting as last week’s “season opener,” but it didn’t have to be. The main event was good while featuring a lot of new and possibly unfamiliar faces.

Next week features the return of Young Lion Ren Narita, who will take on ROH’s Bateman in the main event.
