NJPW Announces Madison Square Garden Return

During Sunday’s New Beginning In Osaka event, New Japan Pro-Wrestling announced that they will be returning to Manhattan’s Madison Square Garden. NJPW Wrestle Dynasty will take place on August 22nd from “The World’s Most Famous Arena.”

The event marks NJPW’s second event in the arena, the first being 2019’s G1 Supercard, produced in tandem with Ring of Honor. Wrestle Dynasty will be the first sole NJPW production from MSG, and the name is eerily similar to Wrestle Kingdom, which is the name of NJPW’s premiere January event in Tokyo.

The event is scheduled for the night before WWE SummerSlam, and the same night as NXT Takeover: Boston.
