The N-1 (Noah-One) Victory (N-1(ノアワン)勝利, Noah-One Victory) is an annual professional wrestling round-robin tournament held by Pro Wrestling Noah (Noah). Originally known as the Global League (グローバル・リーグ, Gurōbaru rīgu) from 2010 until 2018, the tournament was given its current name in March 2019. Created by Akira Taue, the tournament has been held annually since 2010 and is ranked as the most prestigious event in the Noah calendar. The tournament is compared to All Japan Pro Wrestling (AJPW)'s Champion Carnival and New Japan Pro-Wrestling (NJPW)'s G1 Climax.

The N-1 Victory is held under a round-robin system, with two points for a win, one for a draw and none for a loss. The wrestlers finishing atop the points standings in the two blocks advance to the knockout stage, where the winner is determined in a head-to-head match to determine the tournament winner. The tournament matches are held under the GHC title match rules as the base rule, having a 30-minute time limit.

In the below results, (C) signifies the GHC Heavyweight Champion at the time of each tournament. Usually, the winner of the tournament earns a shot at the title, assuming they are not already the champions.

Tournament HistoryEdit

In 2010, Pro Wrestling NOAH announced a new tournament "Global League" comprising and showcase twelve of Noah's top heavyweight stars and have them compete in round-robin matches where the winners of the two divisions would then square off in the tournament finals. The Global League has often been used as a platform for NOAH to push their rising stars. Wins by young up-and-comers over Japanese legends would usually take their respective careers to new heights.

Past winners include Takeshi Morishima, KENTA, Takashi Sugiura and Naomichi Marufuji. The winner of the tournament, assuming they are not already the champion, has traditionally earned a shot at the GHC Heavyweight Championship. The first tournament was held from March 28 to May 2, 2010. The winner of block A Jun Akiyama faced the winner of block B Yoshihiro Takayama at finals where Takayama won. Yoshihiro Takayama would then receive his shot for the GHC Heavyweight Championship against Takashi Sugiura. However, Takayama would fail to win the championship.

Usually, the winner of the tournament gets his GHC Heavyweight Championship in December. Yuji Nagata was the only wrestler to win the Noah's Global League, the AJPW's Champion Carnival and NJPW's G1 Climax. In 2011 and 2013 until now the number of participants as increased. Naomichi Marufuji was the only wrestler to successfully win his opportunity and become the new GHC Heavyweight Champion after winning the tournament, while Kenoh became the first wrestler to win the tournament in his first appearance.

On March 30, 2019, following the takeover of Pro Wrestling Noah by LIDET Entertainment it was announced that the tournament would be renamed to N-1 Victory as part of LIDET Entertainment's plan to relaunch Noah as the second top promotion in Japan. It was also announced that the tournament would take place in the summer opposed to the old format of taking place in the winter. Throughout the relationship between Noah and American promotion Major League Wrestling, Alex Hammerstone and El Hijo de Dr. Wagner Jr. were announced to take part of the new tournament. For the second time in the tournament history, reigning GHC Heavyweight Champion, Kaito Kiyomiya will not take part of the tournament. The winner of the tournament will receive an opportunity for GHC Heavyweight Championship on November 2 at the Ryōgoku Kokugikan.
