ROH Stars Announced For NJPW G1 Climax Finals
Last night during NJPW’s Dominion iPPV, a video package ran announcing that Ring of Honor’s Adam Cole, Michael Bennett, Maria Kanellis and reDRagon (Bobby Fish and Kyle O’Reilly) would be representing the company at their G1 Climax Tournament Finals show on August 9th at Seibu Arena. The G1 Climax Finals is considered the second biggest show of the year in NJPW after the January 4th Wrestle Kingdom show. Seibu Arena is a baseball stadium and can hold 34,000 for baseball games. How this impacts ROH is, on August 9 they are holding a show in Philadelphia at the National Guard Armory and will not only be without Cole, Bennett, Maria and reDRagon, but Michael Elgin is at least scheduled to perform in the UK that weekend. Plans could change between now and August 9.
