Ring of Honor and NJPW’s G1 Supercard rocks Madison Square Garden with spectacular event for the ages

*Saturday night April 6th, 2019 will be the day that Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro Wrestling changed the face of professional wrestling forever, in the best possible way.*

In front of 16,534 fans in a sold out Madison Square Garden in New York City, Ring of Honor and NJPW wrestlers became legendary by being a part of one of the most historic events in the history of the business. The energy in the arena, as the late-great Gorilla Monsoon would say, you could cut with a knife. From the opening dark match, through the main events for the ROH and NJPW Heavyweight titles, every fan in the house could barely sit down due to the excitement brought forth during the first non-WWE professional wrestling event in ‘The World’s Most Famous Arena’. The card for this mega-event went as follows:
