NJPW has confirmed that they have visas for their Japanese wrestlers to wrestle in the United States as they prepare for the G1 Climax 29 Opening Day this summer.
In a simple statement on New Japan’s site, the company wrote “New Japan Pro-Wrestling’s Japanese wrestlers have obtained their visas for the United States. We truly appreciate the understanding and support of our fans.”
The company also confirmed that tickets will go on sale for their G1 Climax 29 Opening Day event in Dallas, Texas on March 13 starting at 12 p.m. Central time. Prices will start at $50 and will go as high as $300.
Due to the United States government shutdown that started in December and ended a month later, New Japan was unable to get visas in time for shows that took place during the New Beginning tour earlier this month. As a result, a number of planned matches featuring the likes of Tomohiro Ishii, Yuji Nagata and Hirooki Goto had to be scrapped. ROH and other local talent were brought in instead for the shows.
