Final NJPW Resurgence PPV Line-Up, Jon Moxley And More In Action Tonight

The NJPW Resurgence pay-per-view is set to air tonight at 7:20 p.m. ET from Long Beach, California’s Walter Pyramid. It will be broadcast live on NJPW World with English and Japanese commentary, and then later on NJPW Strong.

The inaugural NJPW Strong Women’s Champion will be crowned at Resurgence in a one-night tournament. Willow Nightingale of AEW will face Momo Kohgo, and Mercedes Moné will face Stephanie Vaquer of CMLL. The winners of those matches will then square off in the main event, with the winner taking home the title.

KENTA will also face Hikuleo again for the NJPW Openweight Title in Resurgence. KENTA became the third-ever NJPW Strong Openweight Champion on February 18 when he ended Rosser’s 238-day reign at NJPW Battle In The Valley. Hikuleo then defeated KENTA at NJPW Wrestling Dontaku on May 3.
