For the first time ever, New Japan Pro Wrestling’s annual G1 Climax tournament is coming to the United States and AXS TV will broadcast the opening night LIVE from Dallas, Texas.

The live broadcast of the opening night happens on Saturday, July 6th from the American Airlines Center.

“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.”

This will mark AXS TV’s fourth live broadcast of a NJPW event from the United States.

You can watch NJPW on AXS TV every Friday night at 7pm CT as part of the Friday Night Fights lineup which also includes WOW-Women of Wrestling and Legacy Fighting Alliance.
