- According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, ticket sales for the upcoming July 7 G1 Special at the Cow Palace in San Francisco have been underwhelming thus far. Despite getting a venue to hold around 10,000 fans, only around 3,300 tickets sold on the first day. The slower sales could be attributed to NJPW not announcing any matches or even wrestlers who will be at the event. Their previous U.S. show, Strong Style Evolved (results here), almost immediately sold out a 4,700 seat arena.

- PWG announced The 2018 Battle of Los Angeles three-day show will take place on September 14, 15, and 16 at the Globe Theatre in Los Angeles, California. The 16-man tournament is PWG's biggest of the year, last year Ricochet won by defeating Jeff Cobb and Keith Lee in the finals. Their usual home venue (American Legion) in Reseda was thought to be sold and eventually destroyed for new development, but that sale has yet to officially go through. Despite that, PWG will be returning to the Globe Theatre after holding a show there back in March, which you can see a photo of below.
