NEW JAPAN PRO WRESTLING: Jushin Liger to produce Super J-Cup...to be held in United States

Posted on 6/10/119 by Bob Magee

Super J-Cup is Back! Liger to produce first tournament in
the US!

Jushin Thunder Liger announces first Super J-Cup in three
years; SUPER J-CUP 2019 will be held in the US, for the
first time in tournament history outside of Japan.

In 1994, Jushin Thunder Liger was inspired to propose the
Super J-Cup, a single elimination tournament for junior
heavyweight wrestlers from promotions around the world. The
was an immense success, and from then on, it has served as
an irregular Olympic style event; a festival for the worlds
very best junior heavyweight wrestlers and a chance for its
participants to shine bright on a global stage.

On June 10 at a press conference in Tokyo, Liger announced
the seventh running of the tournament, which will take place
outside Japan for the first time ever.

I am honoured to be the producer of Super J-Cup 2019. The
excitement from Best of the Super Juniors hasnt faded, and
NJPW is planning another big tournament for the junior
heavyweights. Its been three years since the last
tournament, a true all-star event filled with dream matches.

Weve had several events in the United States over the last
few years, including Madison Square Garden. Now, the juniors
are taking over in America, as Super J-Cup hits the west
coast.

For 2019, 16 wrestlers take part in a 3-day tournament in
Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles.

・Round 1: August 22, 2019 (Th) at Temple Theater in Tacoma,
WA

・Round 2: August 24, 2019 (Sat) at SFSU Student Life Events
Center in San Francisco, CA

・Semi-Finals and Finals: August 25, 2019 (Sun): Walter
Pyramid in Long Beach, CA

*Entrants will be announced at a later date.

Dont miss the most electric junior heavyweight tournament
in the entire world!
