New Japan Pro Wrestling is trying to expand into one of the largest markets in the world. They want to have more of a presence in North America. Thus, the company has introduced their own version of the United States Heavyweight Championship. A two night tournament will take place in Long Beach on July 1 and July 2 to determine a new champion. Not a whole lot of other details have been revealed about the title belt. However, they have announced the first contestant in the tournament. Jay Lethal will be one of the contestants to carry the belt. The ROH star has a very good chance at winning it.
