Due to injury, Kratos is off night two. 

The second of two shows that the NJPW STRONG brand are running in Japan is taking place on July 5th. Night one was on July 4th. 

There has been a change to the 7/5 Independence Day card due to an injury to J.R. Kratos. He tagged with Jorel Nelson and Royce Isaacs on night one and they defeated Alex Zayne, Lance Archer and Ryohei Oiwa. 

Kratos was cut open but was able to finish the match. He was scheduled to take on Oskar Leube on night two. Leube’s new opponent will be revealed when their entrance music hits. 

Due to an injury sustained last night in Korakuen Hall, JR Kratos will not be cleared to compete this evening.

Oskar Leube will face a mystery opponent in Kratos' place.
