ROH and NJPW holding MSG event during WrestleMania weekend

Ring Of Honor And NJPW Will Put On A Show At Madison Square Garden During WrestleMania 35 Weekend

The event will run opposite the NXT Takeover event that will be held the same night in Brooklyn, New York at Barclays Center.

ROH COO Joe Koff told PWInsider last month that ROH had been working with MSG to decide when ROH's debut in the legendary arena would take place, but the Garden said "they were backing out after communications from the WWE". 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.

Championships from both companies will be defended, and Kazuchika Okada, Hiroshi Tanahashi, and Tetsuya Naito have all been confirmed for the show. This is because the promotion has never held a show in the world's most famous arena, and when it looked like that opportunity was going to present itself, WWE allegedly stepped in to keep Ring of Honor off of its home turf.

So apparently, Ring of Honor made a decision to team up with its pals from New Japan Pro Wrestling to get a deal done with Madison Square Garden. However, none of this would be possible without our fans, who are truly the best in the world.

Much has been made about Ring of Honor's attempt to hold a show in Madison Square Garden.

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

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. No other performers were advertised in the joint news release. It is also still not clear if AAA will use Madison Square Garden or the adjacent 4,500-seat theater.

- Meanwhile, several wrestlers commented on the huge event on Twitter. The first WrestleMania happened at MSG, as have numerous other major pay-per-views and major moments for the company.

An ROH-MSG partnership had been in the works for some time, but Koff claimed in an interview with PWI's Mike Johnson that WWE got involved in the early stages - forcing MSG to initially back out on the deal.

NJPW is the largest wrestling organization outside of the U.S., with over four decades of decorated history, and their most recent Wrestle Kingdom event in Tokyo was presented in front of over 40,000 fans. That said, it's phenomenal that the show is happening at MSG and it makes the weekend feel bigger than ever.
