The G1 Supercard Could Have Negative Impact on WrestleMania

WWE has become the leading wrestling-based company in the world. Throughout the years it has trumped WCW, ECW, the NWA and various other promotions and organizations.

The G1 Supercard has made headlines as ROH and NJPW are scheduled to team up during WrestleMania weekend to hold their event inside Madison Square Garden.

Tickets go on full sale this Friday, but first appearances lead many, including The Wrestling Observer Newsletter to believe the event will be a sold-out event.

Dave Meltzer has revealed the G1 Supercard will be the first professional wrestling event in North America to do a $1 million gate that isn’t promoted or owned by Vince McMahon.

There is the possibility, according to Meltzer, that a large percentage of the audience attending the G1 Supercard do not and potentially will not attend WrestleMania 35.

This could mean WWE runs the risk of losing up to thousands of viewers live in attendance due to this event run by two different companies. It also means NXT TakeOver will likely get less viewership, as the G1 Supercard is expected to run on the same day and at the same time.

Do you believe the G1 Supercard will have an effect on the WrestleMania attendance? Are you attending the G1 Supercard, NXT TakeOver or WrestleMania 35? Sound off in the comments below.
