"Filthy" Tom Lawlor has made history by becoming the first NJPW Strong Openweight Champion.

He won the championship this past Friday by defeating Ring Of Honor star Brody King via a Chokehold in the main event of NJPW Strong. 

Lawlor who is signed with Major League Wrestling (MLW) and with the promotion set to makes it's debut with ViceTV, along with appearances made by Rocky Romero within MLW, it breaks down the barrier in terms of title defences in other promotions.

With Lawlors win, there's a lot of room to maneuver and the possibilities of defences and new challenges is endless in terms of cross promotion competition. With that being said, it could lead to a multitude of contenders from any and all comers. 

Congratulations to the New NJPW Strong Openweight Champion "Filthy" Tom Lawlor!
