Christopher Daniels and Hiromu Takahashi Meet at Global Wars: Buffalo

The partnership between Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro-Wrestling has never been stronger and this fall, GLOBAL WARS descends upon the US featuring stars from both great organizations! The tour is highlighted by the United States return of the IWGP UNITED STATES CHAMPION KENNY OMEGA as well as the United States debut of YOSHI-HASHI! All of your favorite ROH stars will be on the tour, like ROH World Champion “The American Nightmare” Cody, the ROH World Six Man Tag Team Champions Adam Page and the Young Bucks, ROH World Tag Team Champions The Motor City Machine Guns, Jay Lethal, Silas Young, The Addiction, and more!
 
New Japan will be represented by former ROH World TV Champion KUSHIDA and rival Hiromu Takahashi, as well as Toru Yano and members of SUZUKI-GUN represented by NEVER Openweight Champion Minoru Suzuki and the IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Champions Killer Elite Squad!
 
Officials from ROH and NJPW have been working around the clock and matches are being signed daily! On Thursday, October 12 in Buffalo, a former ROH World Champion steps into the ring with a man he took under his wing while on excursion in the US who has become one of the world’s top Junior Heavyweights since returning to Japan!
 
“ALMIGHTY” CHRISTOPHER DANIELS VS. HIROMU TAKAHASHI
 
2016 was a pivotal year for professional wrestling. For Christopher Daniels, “The Fallen Angel” spent the summer as ROH World Tag Team Champion with “The Heavy Metal Rebel” Frankie Kazarian with a man then known as KAMAITACHI under their wing before reassessing their careers and choosing to compete for the ROH World Championship. For KAMAITACHI, an excursion to the United States from Japan via Mexico looked to be the finishing touch before one of wrestling’s top prospects returned to Japan.
 
Both men’s 2017s saw great fortune. Daniels completed a 26-year odyssey, winning the ROH World Championship for the very first time while KAMAITACHI made an explosive return to New Japan Pro-Wrestling, assuming the very-appropriate nickname “The Timebomb” and using his given name Hiromu Takahashi captured the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Championship for the very first time as a member of Los Ingobernables de Japon while befriending a cat named Daryl.
 
While there is no doubt Takahashi learned a great deal from Daniels, it is odd for some to see how adored Takahashi is in the United States despite his antics while Daniels is at odds with the fans, especially with how Takahashi’s excursion ended. After Takahashi, Daniels, and Kaz lost to Team CMLL in a World Six Man Tag Team Title Tournament match, Takahashi spit in the face of the Addiction.
 
Since then, Takahashi was electric on the War of the Worlds – UK Tour while Daniels and partner Kaz have pledged to ruin everything fans love about ROH. In a dramatic role reversal, the popular worldwide-star and his trusted feline pal Daryl go into Buffalo the fan favorites against the former ROH World Champion! Wrestlers forgive but never forget – who will win this battle between former mentor and mentee? Join us to find out!
