Ken Anderson makes his ROH debut in Hopkins, MN and has a chance to capture championship gold on his very first night! Scurll, and champions before him like Jay Lethal, Tomohiro Ishii, and Bobby Fish before him have elevated the ROH World Television Championship to the level of the ROH World Championship and Anderson looks for an opportunity to add his name to this storied lineage.
Coming off the best year of his career in 2016, many wondered how “El Ingobernable” would top his accomplishments in 2017. 2016 saw Naito won the New Japan Cup and go on to add his name to the storied lineage of the IWGP Heavyweight Championship, a history that includes legends like Inoki, Tanahashi, and Choshu, defeating Kazuchika Okada for the championship. Though Naito would lose the championship back to Okada, Naito rebounded just three months later, capturing the IWGP Intercontinental Championship from Michael Elgin in Kobe, Japan.
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!
