2016 saw stars from all around the globe descend up ROH. In June, former New Japan Young Lion New Zealander Jay White made his ROH debut the night after Best in the World defeating now-ROH World Champion “Almighty” Christopher Daniels. ROH traveled to the UK in November and it was there that native son “The Aerial Assassin” Will Ospreay captured the ROH World Television Championship in his very first match defeating Bobby Fish.
In Japan, it is of the highest honor to be referred to as an Ace. An Ace personifies the most athletic and most accomplished wrestler within a company. For over a decade, New Japan’s Ace has arguably been Hiroshi Tanahashi. A record-setting seven-time IWGP Heavyweight Champion, Tanahashi has the most successful defenses ever of said championship and has held it for the most combined days in history among his reigns.
For the fourth-consecutive year, the stars of Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro-Wrestling will do battle with and against one another on the War of the Worlds Tour! Titles will be contested and dream matches realized as all of your favorite stars from ROH and NJPW do battle in Toronto, Dearborn, New York City, and Philadelphia! With the relationship between ROH and NJPW stronger than ever, tickets have moved fast and these events will sell out. If you are considering coming, do not hesitate!
