Ring Of Honor & New Japan Teaming Up At Madison Square Garden Next April

Published

on

In some surprising news today, Ring Of Honor has just announced that it will be teaming up with New Japan Pro Wrestling on April 6th, 2019, at ‘The World’s Most Famous Arena’, Madison Square Garden, for the G1 Supercard. This means that the event will be held the night before WrestleMania 35 at MetLife Stadium and the same night as NXT TakeOver at the nearby Barclays Center. Previously, it was reported that WWE had stepped in to prevent Ring Of Honor from appearing during WrestleMania weekend (read more about that here), but obviously something seems to have changed.

We will provide more details as they become available, but until then here is ROH’s full announcement:

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 didn’t 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 World’s 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 grateful.”

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.

IMPACT News: Tonight’s IMPACT Wrestling Non-Spoiler Preview (7/19/18)

Published

on

Tonight’s episode of IMPACT Wrestling is the go-home show for Slammiversary. IMPACT has been building towards their biggest show of the summer and the card is shaping up nicely. All the titles will be on the line and someone will either lose their mask or hair that night.

With Slammiversary just three short days away here is the rundown for what IMPACT is advertising on the go-home show:

  • Aries and Moose Confrontation

Austin Aries and Moose have been going back and forth with each other for weeks now since the match was announced. We have seen video packages of how they got into the wrestling business and their personal lives. Last week we got to hear an update on Moose’s training from hiw friend and former professional football player DeAngelo Williams. This eventually lead to Aries assaulting Williams which lead to Moose “calling into the show” and telling Aries that he will be there next week and that he has made this personal. What will happen when champion and challenger come face to face for the first and only time before their huge match at Slammiversary?

  • The Prestigious One’s IMPACT Debut

Two weeks ago on IMPACT Wrestling in a backstage segment “The Prestigious One” Joe Hendry made his IMPACT debut and was introduced as Grado’s friend. Last week he accompanied Grado to the ring along eith Katerina for his match against former IMPACT World Champion Eli Drake. Drake would go on to win the match and try to flirt with Katarina before Hendry would step in. This post-match altercation lead us to tonight’s match. Hendry will be making his in-ring debut against Eli Drake. How will Hendry fare against the former world champion?

  • Sami Callihan

Last week oVe defeated Pentagon Jr, Fenix, and Rich Swann in a six man lucha rules tag team match. The match was highly praised and in the end Sami Callihan was able to pick up the win for oVe. Tonight will be his last match before his mask vs. hair match with Pentagon Jr. Will this be the last time we see Sami Callihan with hair or will he add another one of Pentagon’s mask to his collection?

  • Killer Kross vs. Petey Williams

Two weeks ago Killer Kross made his in-ring debut against Fallah Bahh. Kross would go on to win the match and begin a post match beatdown which lead to KM getting involved to save his partner. Unfortunately KM would suffer the same fate until Petey Williams would run down with a steel chair to make the save. Petey hasn’t forgotten about the attack backstage and is out for revenge. Will Petey get his revenge or will Killer Kross continue his reign of dominance?

  • Desi Hit Squad

Last week KM and Fallah Bahh were trying to get back on the same page and be friends again when they ran into the Desi Hit Squad. Words were exchange and Gama talked down about Americans which lead KM to challenging them to a tag match for tonight. Will the Desi Hit Squad add another W to their win column or wil KM and Fallah Bahh hand them their first lost?

  • Konnan addresses The OGz

Last week on IMPACT The OGz laid down a challenge to LAX in a 5150 street fight for the tag titles. Tonight Konnan will address the challenge and The OGz. What will Konnan have to say?

All this and more will be on tap tonight. Who will get the last bit of momentum heading into the 16th Anniversary show known as Slammiversary?
