AEW and ROH star Willow Nightingale defeated Mercedes Mone’ Sunday night at the NJPW STRONG Resurgence PPV event, to become the first-ever STRONG Women’s Champion.

Our own Alex Kahrs attended the event live, saying this was possibly the shock of the night, with Nightingale pinning Mone’ to win the championship.

Alex did indicate that it appeared Mone’ was injured during the match, when Mercedes hit Nightingale with a clothesline from the top rope. She had to be carried out after the match ended. We will provide further details in a separate report with more information as it becomes available.
