NJPW Strong is moving from Friday nights to Saturday nights. 

NJPW announced that Strong will move from its Friday 10 p.m. Eastern time slot to Saturday at 8 p.m. Eastern, beginning with the September 18 edition of the show. Strong airs on NJPW World and FITE TV. 

The Friday night landscape has grown increasingly crowded with the addition of AEW Rampage earlier this month. WWE has SmackDown on Fox at 8 p.m. Eastern and 205 Live on Peacock/WWE Network at 10 p.m. Eastern on Fridays. 

NJPW Strong debuted on August 7, 2020 and primarily features a different roster than the NJPW main unit. With pandemic-related travel issues plaguing NJPW’s main roster, some talent based outside of Japan that had been main unit mainstays have moved over to becoming Strong regulars, including Will Ospreay, Jay White, Juice Robinson and David Finlay.

Additionally, Hiroshi Tanahashi and Tomohiro Ishii were brought in for the most recent set of NJPW Strong tapings in Long Beach, California.
