According to PWInsider.com, after ROH and NJPW sold 9,000 G1 Supercard tickets during the HonorClub pre-sale on Wednesday, today’s pre-sale sold out almost immediately. With approximately 15,000 tickets being allocated for the event, it’s likely the event will sellout quickly after Friday’s public on-sale.
