JULY 1, 2017 – from Between The Ropes
Last night, New Japan Pro Wrestling held its historic first show on US soil at the Long Beach Convention and Entertainment Center in Long Beach, CA. In the main event, IWGP Heavyweight Champion successfully defended his title, turning back the challenge of Bullet Club Member Cody. After the match, Bullet Club leader Kenny Omega gave a warning to Okada about their rematch tonight at the second half of the G1 Special double-header.

The second G1 Special show – featuring the conclusion of the IWGP US Heavyweight Championship tournament – happens tonight in Long Beach, CA and will air on AXS TV on Friday, July 7.
