Golden Lovers vs. Young Bucks, White vs. Hangman confirmed for ‘Strong Style Evolved’

Three matches have been confirmed for New Japan Pro Wrestling’s visit to Long Beach, California next month. The following was confirmed by New Japan officials earlier today.

Tag Team Match
The Golden Lovers vs. The Young Bucks

IWGP United States Championship Match
‘Switchblade’ Jay White (c) vs. Hangman Page

Singles Match
Jushin Thunder Liger vs. Rey Mysterio

Major storyline advancements took place this past weekend at ROH: Honor Rising when The Young Bucks announced that they would be moving up to the Heavyweight division. This came after Kenny Omega made the claim that the Golden Lovers were the best tag team in the world. The Bucks are 7-time IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Champions in Japan and have also held ROH tag gold three times. They currently hold the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Title with Hangman Page.

Speaking of Hangman, last year’s ROH Breakout Star will look to claim his first major singles title since winning the CWF Mid-Atlantic Heavyweight Championship in 2012 when he challenges Jay White for the IWGP US strap. Hangman was prepared to let White know his intentions in Sapporo last month but would be interrupted by Omega, which would ultimately lead to the Cross Rhodes heard round the world and the Golden Lovers reuniting.

While we already knew that Mysterio and Liger would face off on the show, it’s still nice to see it in writing.

If you have yet to check it out, the latest episode of Being the Elite that dropped today featured more behind the scenes stuff between Kota, Kenny and The Bucks ahead of their impending showdown in Long Beach.

Strong Style Evolved will take place on March 25th at Walter Pyramid in Long Beach. Their are no tickets left for the show but it will air live on AXS TV with Jim Ross and Josh Barnett on commentary.
