NJPW has released the line-ups for the remaining four Summer Struggle cards that take place this week with four shows at Korakuen Hall.

The tour resumes on Tuesday with cards at Korakuen Hall each day this week through Friday. The shows will build to Friday’s main event with the return of Hiromu Takahashi in his first match since February after suffering a torn pectoral muscle.

The shows will feature the debut of the newest Young Lions, Kosei Fujita, and Ryohei Oiwa.

Oiwa is 22-years old and wrestled as an amateur in high school and college. He was part of the New Japan tryouts last December and has been training at the New Japan Dojo since April.

Fujita is 19-years old and was part of the same tryouts last December. He wrestled in high school at 80 kilos (176 pounds).
