NJPW returning to Madison Square Garden for Wrestle Dynasty


New Japan Pro Wrestling is returning to Madison Square Garden this summer.

During the New Beginning in Osaka, NJPW announced that they'll be holding a show at Madison Square Garden in New York City on Saturday, August 22. The event is called Wrestle Dynasty.

Ticket information for Wrestle Dynasty has yet to be revealed. NJPW's English-language website wrote to stay tuned for further information about the show.

NJPW and ROH co-promoted G1 Supercard at Madison Square Garden on the Saturday of WrestleMania weekend last year. The show was headlined by Kazuchika Okada defeating Jay White for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship.

Wrestle Dynasty is taking place on the same day as NXT TakeOver: Boston. The TD Garden in Boston is hosting SmackDown on August 21, TakeOver on August 22, SummerSlam on August 23, and Raw on August 24.

NJPW's G1 Climax would normally be held in August, but the tournament was moved back this year due to Tokyo hosting the Summer Olympics. The G1 tournament will begin in September and conclude in October.
