LEAD STORY/RING OF HONOR/NEW JAPAN: Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro Wrestling to present G1 Supercard on Wrestlemania weekend at Madison Square Garden

Posted on 7/12/118 by Ring of Honor Wrestling

Baltimore, MD [07/12/18] For 16 years, Ring of Honor
Wrestling has created some of the top stars in professional
wrestling, and for nearly 50 years, New Japan Pro-Wrestling
has brought Japanese Strong Style to the world. Together,
these two companies have delivered world class shows such as
War of the Worlds, Strong Style Evolved, Global Wars,
Honor Rising, and the G1 Special, which NJPW has
launched as a special kickoff in the United States to their
annual G1 Climax, known as one of the most elite
tournaments in professional wrestling.

ROH and NJPW are proud to announce that on April 6th, 2019,
the companies will join forces to present the ultimate
wrestling event, G1 Supercard, to fans from around the
world, LIVE from Madison Square Garden in New York City!

Three years ago, one of our best fans told me in confidence
that Supercard of Honor just didnt feel super anymore,
said Greg Gilleland, ROH General Manager. He was right and
we took that to heart with the huge events we delivered in
Lakeland, FL in 2017, and New Orleans, LA just a few months
ago. With consecutive record breaking attendances, the
question became, how can we top that in 2019? More
importantly, how can we give the fans more of what they want
and what they deserve? The G1 Supercard is an event that can
only represent the absolute best possible matches with both
NJPW and ROH stars, and Madison Square Garden is the perfect
venue for them.

This is a historic initiative for ROH and New Japan Pro-
Wrestling, Harold Meij, President of NJPW proudly
commented. This gives us a great chance to expose fans to
NJPW in the building which housed so many memorable and
compelling matches.

Already confirmed for this show from NJPW are Kazuchika
Okada, Hiroshi Tanahashi, and Tetsuya Naito, in addition to
all of the top ROH Stars. This show is set to be massive in
magnitude including many matches to be announced with
championships from both companies defended. Fans will not
want to miss this marquee event at a venue with such an
amazing storied history of wrestling.

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 Worlds Most
Famous Arena.

ROH Chief Operating Officer Joe Koff is equally proud. This
is destined to join a long list of historical wrestling
moments and where better to hold it than at Madison Square
Garden. 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

G1 Supercard is sure to be a historical event in New York
City that promises to exceed all expectations.

Tickets will go on-sale on Wednesday, August 8th at 10:00 AM
ET for HonorClub members and Friday, August 10th for the
General Public.
