Tag title vs. tag title match confirmed for ROH-NJPW G1 Supercard


A match for both the ROH and IWGP tag team championships has been set.

At this morning’s Honor Rising event, the Guerrillas of Destiny defeated EVIL and SANADA for the IWGP tag team titles. The Briscoes also won their match, retaining the ROH tag team titles against Juice Robinson and David Finlay in the main event.

After the main event concluded, Jay Briscoe got a mic and challenged GoD to a title for title match on April 6 at the G1 Supershow. GoD then came out, with Tanga Loa accepting the challenge on behalf of his team. The four then had a staredown, lifting both sets of titles in the air.

A few days later, New Japan officially confirmed that both champions will face one another. The ROH tag team championships will be defended on the ROH 17th Anniversary show, with the Briscoes defending against Brody King and PCO. The winners of that match will likely face GoD.

This would be the first match officially set for the G1 Supercard, which will take place at Madison Square Garden. It was announced earlier this week that the winner of next month’s New Japan Cup tournament will face IWGP Heavyweight champion Jay White for the title.
