“ROH has announced the first set of participants for the Honor Rumble, which takes place on the G1 Supercard pre-show. They are: Kenny King, PJ Black, The Bouncers (Beer City Bruiser and Brian Milonas) and Cheeseburger. New Japan Pro-Wrestling previously announced that the legendary Jushin “Thunder” Liger will be in the Rumble.
I’m told there will be several surprises in the Rumble, including one competitor who has had numerous matches at Madison Square Garden and even defended a world title there.”
The Honor Rumble is a Royal Rumble-style battle royal match that will air on the G1 Supercard pre-show, which begins at 6:30 p.m. EST. leading into the big event.
The NJPW & ROH G1 Supercard show is scheduled for Saturday, April 6th, from the world-famous Madison Square Garden arena in New York City, New York. The show will be available via pay-per-view, as well as on the Honor Club and FITE TV digital subscription streaming services.
