The ROH Executive Committee is thrilled to announce that CMLL star VOLADOR JR. will compete at Supercard of Honor!
Previously announced was an ROH World Title match with Dalton Castle as challenger, and appearances by Japanese legend Jushin “Thunder” Liger, CMLL star Dragon Lee and NJPW star Yoshi-Hashi.
Volador Jr., a second-generation luchador and the nephew of the original La Parka, has been one of the most highly acclaimed stars in CMLL since making his debut there in 2001.
A huge fan favorite, the high-flying Volador Jr. has held numerous championships, including the CMLL World Tag Team Championship, CMLL World Trios Championship, Mexican National Light Heavyweight Championship, Mexican National Trios Championship, NWA World Historic Middleweight Championship and NWA World Historic Welterweight Championship.
Volador Jr. also has competed for New Japan Pro-Wrestling. He had a strong showing in last year’s Best of the Super Juniors tournament, where a loss to eventual winner Will Ospreay in his last round-robin match prevented Volador Jr. from reaching the finals.
Volador Jr. worked as a headliner on the past five Fantastica Mania tours, which are co-promoted by NJPW and CMLL and held in Japan.
Who will Volador Jr. face in his much-anticipated ROH debut? Join us in Lakeland for the biggest night in ROH history to find out!
