For the first time ever New Japan Pro Wrestling will be holding their 29th annual G1 CLIMAX tournament in the United States. The rigorous tournament kicks off on Saturday, July 6. at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.
Not only will you be able to stream the event live from New Japan World, AXS TV will also air the event the LIVE!
“The G1 CLIMAX tournament is the greatest tournament in pro wrestling and differentiates NEW JAPAN PRO WRESTLING from the competition,” said AXS TV FIGHTS CEO Andrew Simon. “Having night one take place in the United States shows that NJPW is now a global company with worldwide interest. We are excited to broadcast this historic night live to AXS TV fans.”
The G1 will commence in Dallas, Texas but will be continuing across Japan until the Aug. 12 finale in Tokyo. THE G1 will include 20 of the best wrestlers on New Japan’s roster and Kevin Kelly will be calling the action for AXS TV.
This is now the fourth time AXS TV broadcasts NJPW LIVE from the U.S.
