It was recently reported that Madison Square Garden officials are more open than ever to the idea of working with a wrestling promotion that’s not WWE, and it seems that’s the case as NJPW and ROH just announced a big event at the legendary venue.
The event is called G1 Supercard, and it’s set to take place on Saturday, April 6, 2019, the night before WrestleMania 35.
“This is destined to join a long list of historical wrestling moments and where better to hold it than at Madison Square Garden,” ROH COO Joe Koff said in a press release. “I am extremely proud of what we have been able to achieve as a company and am very appreciative of how great our relationship with New Japan Pro-Wrestling has become. However, none of this would be possible without our fans, who are truly the best in the world. Madison Square Garden would not be possible without them and for that I am most grateful.”
Championships from both companies will be defended, and Kazuchika Okada, Hiroshi Tanahashi, and Tetsuya Naito have all been confirmed for the show.
“We are thrilled to welcome Ring of Honor Wrestling and New Japan Pro-Wrestling to Madison Square Garden for the much anticipated G1 Supercard,” said Joel Fisher, Executive Vice President, MSG Marquee Events. “We expect April 6th to be another memorable night of wrestling at The World’s Most Famous Arena.”
Tickets are set to go on-sale on Wednesday, August 8th at 10:00 AM ET for HonorClub members and general ticket sales will being on Friday, August 10th.
