Scott D’Amore of IMPACT Wrestling:
Since NJPW returned to AXS TV just over a year ago, we have been looking at ways to expand our working relationship between the two brands. Multiverse United on March 30th at the Globe Theatre in Los Angeles is the first of many exciting collaborations between IMPACT and NJPW.

New Japan Pro-Wrestling and IMPACT have been a winning combination on AXS TV, and now fans get to see these two companies share the same ring in person. I personally cannot wait to see what arises from this special card, and I can guarantee fans will experience a historic event the likes of which they’ve never seen before.
They are advertising Trey Miguel, Minoru Suzuki, KENTA, Rocky Romero, Chris Bey, Ace Austin, Clark Connors, Kevin Knight, Fred Rosser, and members of the Knockouts division for the card.
