At War of the Worlds UK: London, Mark Briscoe Faces One of the Best High Flyers in the World


 
Coming hot off the heels of the sold-out War of the Worlds 2017 Tour in North America, ROH is thrilled to announce, in conjunction with NJPW, CMLL and Revolution Pro Wrestling, the first-ever War of the Worlds UK Tour from August 18th, 2017 – August 20th, 2017! With stronger-than-ever partnerships, stars from the top professional wrestling organizations in the world will do battle over the course of three nights!
 
The tour comes in overwhelming response to not only the resoundingly successful ROH Reach for the Sky UK Tour, but also to the rapid sellouts of Ring of Honor, New Japan, CMLL, and Rev Pro events around the globe. The match possibilities are endless, dream teams could be formed, and various championships WILL be contested!
 
Officials from all four companies have been meeting throughout the early parts of the summer creating and signing matches the fans want to see. And in London at York Hall, the Sussex County Chicken meets one of the best high flyers in the world!
 
MARK BRISCOE vs. RYAN SMILE
 
The Sussex County Chicken travels across the pond and out of his comfort zone to take on one of the best high flyers in the world, Ryan Smile! An eight-time ROH World Tag Team Champion, Mark Briscoe has always kept his eye on the World Television Championship, a well-documented goal of his. And a win over one of the hottest, up and coming high flyers may do a lot to put Briscoe on the championship path.
 
But despite the experience edge, Briscoe will absolutely have his hands full. Smile has engaged in feuds and has emerged victorious against former ROH World Television Champions “The Villain” Marty Scurll and “The Aerial Assassin” Will Ospreay. Smile has a variety of aerial moves of his own that make him a tough draw and knows that a win over Briscoe could put him directly in line for his own ROH World Television Championship shot!
