A day after cancelling the Best of the Super Juniors tour, in response to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic and its continued effect on social gatherings all over the world, NJPW has arrived at the decision to postpone Wrestle Dynasty, which was scheduled to take place on August 22 2020, to a date in 2021 to be announced. The company had previously cancelled early ticket sales for the show.
The move comes as the state of New York is still affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and as health officials still urge that stay-at-home orders still be maintained. State of emergency measures have also been extended in Japan as well. Wrestle Dynasty was set to take place at Madison Square Garden, marking a return to the venue after co-promoting the G1 Supercard event at MSG.
The company will announce the new ticket information and event date in the future. In the meantime, pre-sale registration will continue, fans can still sign up to our pre-sale list to be informed of the new date for Wrestle Dynasty the moment details are confirmed, and will still be able to get early access to tickets.
New Japan Pro-Wrestling remains extremely appreciative of all our great fans worldwide. While this postponement is unfortunate, the health and safety of wrestlers, staff, fans and society at large is the company’s utmost priority. NJPW wrestlers and staff are coming together under the NJPW Together project to continue to do what they can to bring content to fans on NJPW World. NJPW says they hope to be back in the ring in the near future. NJPW currently do not have any future shows scheduled for June or beyond.
You can still sign up for pre-sale here: https://willap.jp/p/acc_2374/Wrestle_Dynasty/
In the interests of running the best and safest possible event for fans, NJPW has arrived at the decision to postpone Wrestle Dynasty in Madison Square Garden.
Sorry for the delay, but we'll be back stronger in 2021!
