ROH issued the following press release, announcing an Honor Rumble for the ROH-NJPW G1 Supercard Pre-Show. Both ROH and NJPW stars are set to compete in the rumble.
The stars of Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro-Wrestling will compete in an Honor Rumble over-the-top rope battle royal as part of the G1 Supercard pre-show on Saturday, April 6 at sold-out Madison Square Garden.
The pre-show begins at a special start time of 6:30 p.m. ET, an hour before the start of the G1 Supercard pay-per-view. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. If you have a ticket, make sure to come early to get exclusive, commemorative G1 Supercard merchandise.
There have been seven Honor Rumble matches (a battle royal in which the competitors enter the match at time intervals), a staple of ROH since 2008. With the NJPW stars in the mix, this will undoubtedly be the biggest, most star-studded Honor Rumble yet.
More action for the preshow will be announced soon. Keep it locked onto ROHWrestling.com for information on how to watch the G1 Supercard Pre-Show.
