As the 6/18 episode of NJPW Strong came to an end, it was announced that in July, a tag team tournament will take place on the NJPW Strong program. A total of eight teams are scheduled for the tourney and coming back under the New Japan Pro-Wrestling banner for the first time since 2016 are The Good Brothers (Doc Gallows & Karl Anderson).
