New Japan today announced that they are launching a new series called NJPW Strong, which will premiere this summer. The show will be streaming on NJPW World starting August 7th at 10 PM ET (3 AM BST). No more details have been announced for the show for the moment.

NJPW also announced an upcoming series of shows at Jingu Stadium called the Summer Struggle. The company will begin the Summer Struggle tour on July 26 at Korakuen Hall, running through August 16 in Shizuoka (all the dates here).

During the New Japan Road event in Korakuen Hall July 20, the culmination of the Summer Struggle tour was announced, taking place in the famous Jingu baseball stadium on August 29. The tour closing event marks only the second time that NJPW has run an outside event in the sacred sporting stadium, Battle of Last Summer in 1999 seeing Shinya Hashimoto face Masahiro Chono, and Great Nita and Great Muta in a No Rope Exploding Ring Deathmatch. NJPW will bring the heat and the fireworks to wrestling’s biggest summer festival on August 29!
