Jeff Cobb-Will Ospreay title vs. title match set up for G1 Supercard


A second title vs. title match has been set up for Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro Wrestling's G1 Supercard at Madison Square Garden.

After Jeff Cobb retained his TV title against Shane Taylor at Friday's ROH 17th Anniversary pay-per-view, ROH announced that Cobb had challenged Ospreay to a title vs. title match at G1 Supercard. Cobb's TV title and Ospreay's NEVER Openweight Championship will both be on the line.

Ospreay pinned Cobb in a tag match at NJPW-ROH Honor Rising night two on February 23.

Cobb vs. Ospreay likely won't be officially announced for G1 Supercard until Ospreay is eliminated from the New Japan Cup. Ospreay is facing Kazuchika Okada in a quarterfinal match on Wednesday (March 20).

The winner of the New Japan Cup will challenge for Jay White's IWGP Heavyweight Championship at G1 Supercard.

IWGP Tag Team Champions Tama Tonga & Tanga Loa are also set to face ROH Tag Team Champions The Briscoes (who are defending their titles against PCO & Brody King at ROH's Anniversary PPV) in a title vs. title match at G1 Supercard, which is taking place on Saturday, April 6.
