ROH And NJPW G1 Supercard Is "A Testament To How Popular Wrestling Is" According To Flip Gordon

Flip Gordon says people thought Ring of Honor was nuts. 

The sold out co-promoted G1 Supercard has been scheduled for April 6th at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro Wrestling have come together to put on the card on the same weekend as WrestleMania 35.

In an interview with Vulture Hound, Ring of Honor wrestler Flip Gordon was asked about the landmark event. 

“It’s insane. Three months ago, if we were talking about even performing in the Garden, people would’ve said we’re nuts, and here we are. And we just sold out of the stadium. ‘The World’s Most Famous Arena,’ Ring of Honor and New Japan, just sold out, in just two days. That’s just a testament to how popular wrestling is right now," said Flip Gordon. 

When the event was first reported, there were also reports that the venue had backed out because of interference by WWE. Gordon said he found out about that on Twitter "like everybody else" and when the show was officially announced he also found out online. 

During the rest of the interview, he was asked about All In and his "All Out" party in the parking lot of the September 1st event. He said he would be trying to get booked until the final bell of the card.
