This is actually the second time Okada has won the New Japan Cup. He previously won it in 2013, and went on to challenge then IWGP Heavyweight Champion Hiroshi Tanahashi at the Invasion Attack 2013 event and won. It would be interesting to see if Okada can manage to do the same this time too.

The “Switchblade” on the other hand has not defended his title since winning it on February 11 at The New Beginning in Osaka event.

Ring of Honor Wrestling (ROH) and New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) are co-promoting the G1 Supercard event in New York City’s Madison Square Garden on April 6th during WrestleMania 35 weekend.

The G1 Supercard event will air live on pay-per-view via cable and satellite FITE TV for $39.99 as well as on HonorClub and NJPW World. The two promotions will be announcing more matches for this show in the coming days. Here’s the updated card:

  • IWGP Heavyweight Champion Jay White vs. Kazuchika Okada
