New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) held its show “THE NEW BEGINNING in OSAKA 2020” this morning. During the show, the Japanese company has made announcements about new dates in its calendar for 2020. After many rumors in recent days, New Japan confirms that they will return to Madison Square Garden in a few months.
The new event will be called WRESTLE DYNASTY, taking place on Saturday, August 22 from New York, United States. This show will take the place as a great summer event after the delay of the G1 Climax in the autumn, visiting “the most famous stadium in the world”.
On this occasion, NJPW will perform the show individually, without any co-production. The show can be seen live from New Japan World worldwide.
On April 6, 2019, NJPW and Ring of Honor (ROH), its allied company in the United States, jointly conducted G1 Supercard from the famous New York venue. The success for both companies was resounding, getting 16,534 spectators to the show starring a defense of the IWGP Heavyweight Championship between Kazuchika Okada and Jay White.
In addition, NJPW has confirmed new dates for the G1 Climax 30. The first two days of the most important tournament in New Japan will be on Saturday, September 19 and Sunday 20 of the same month from the EDION Arena Osaka.
The competition will revisit the same venue on Saturday, October 10, in the final stretch. For its part, NJPW will return to another large venue, confirming a G1 show on Sunday, September 27 from the Kobe World Memorial Hall in Kobe, Hyogo, Japan.
