NJPW G1 Special in USA card info announced



Following this past weekend’s incredible Dominion show out of Osaka, the focus turns to Long Beach, where New Japan Pro Wrestling is set to invade the United States of America for the very first time. 

The first night of the special will broadcast live on AXS TV beginning at 9 pm ET on July 1st while the July 2nd show will not air on AXS until July 7th. Both shows will air on NJPWWorld, but the 1st show will not air live in the States – you’ll have to wait to see it On Demand if you don’t have AXS.
