NJPW have officially announced two STARDOM matches for Rumble On 44th Street, featuring an SWA Title Match and a Tag Team Match.
New Japan Pro-Wrestling will be returning to the US in the coming days, with the celebration of the Rumble On 44th Street PPV.
Even though NJPW always puts in some interesting matchcards, Rumble On 44th Street generated a little bit more expectations since the company had previously announced the presence of some STARDOM talents on the show.
After taking to social media earlier today, NJPW have finally announced two huge STARDOM matches for Rumble On 44th Street. About this, the NJPW Global official Twitter account shared the following message:
“Official for #njRumble FRIDAY! Mayu Iwatani defends the SWA World Championship against KiLynn King! In a special FREE kickoff match, Cosmic Angels’ Waka Tsukiyama and Mina Shirakawa take on Kylie Rae and Tiara James!”
About the SWA World Championship Match, it is important to mention that this will be Mayu Iwatani’s second title defense. After winning the title from Thekla on STARDOM’s Golden Week Fight Tour on May, “The STARDOM Icon” proceeded to make her first defense against Oedotai’s Fukigen Death.
So, since only wrestlers from a different country than the champion are eligible to challenge for the title, Mayu will be in for a good fight when she faces KiLynn King.
