Three-way Junior Heavyweight title match official for G1 Supercard


The IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship will be on the line in a three-way match at ROH & NJPW's G1 Supercard at Madison Square Garden.

ROH announced today that Taiji Ishimori will defend his Junior Heavyweight title against Dragon Lee and Bandido at G1 Supercard. NJPW (Ishimori), CMLL (Lee), and ROH (Bandido) will all be represented in the match.

Ishimori retained the Junior Heavyweight title by defeating Jushin Thunder Liger at NJPW's 47th Anniversary show. Ishimori then cut a promo where he said he wants to defend his title at Madison Square Garden. He challenged anyone from ROH, but Dragon Lee came out instead. 

ROH posted a video today where Bandido wanted to be added to the Junior Heavyweight title match.

G1 Supercard is taking place on Saturday, April 6. IWGP Heavyweight Champion Jay White will defend his title against the winner of the New Japan Cup. There will also be a Tag Team title vs. Tag Team title match. IWGP Tag Team Champions Tama Tonga & Tanga Loa will face ROH Tag Team Champions The Briscoes with both sets of titles on the line.

Before G1 Supercard, The Briscoes will defend their titles against PCO & Brody King at ROH's 17th Anniversary pay-per-view this month.
