Ricky Morton and Robert Gibson are primed to make their New Japan Pro-Wrestling (NJPW) debut. The Rock N Roll Express will officially be a part of NJPW’s Fighting Spirit Unleashed Tour, which starts on September 27th and ends on September 29th. The tour includes shows in Lowell, Massachusetts; New York, New York and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
NJPW1972.com highlighted the team’s lucrative career, writing that the duo has been wrestling over four decades and have had over 30 championship reigns all over the world. Despite their success, the team have never wrestled for NJPW—but Fighting Spirit Unleashed changes that.
More Names Announced
NJPW also announced that SHO, YOH, Rocky Romero (Roppongi 3K), and Suzuki-Gun member Lance Archer will also be in attendance. Roppongi 3K was recently over in the United States for the promotion’s Super J-Cup tour. Archer, meanwhile, participated in NJPW’s gruelling G1 Climax tournament this summer.
These names join several of NJPW’s top stars including Kota Ibushi, Hiroshi Tanahashi, Tetsuya Naito, Tomohiro Ishii, and IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kazuchika Okada.
For those interested in attending, there are still tickets available for NJPW’s show in Lowell, MA. Both Fighting Spirit Unleashed shows in New York and Philadelphia, however, are sold out.
