CMLL's Titan gets his shot at the ROH TV Title in London!

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, a first-time ever clash between two of the world’s best will take place with the ROH World Television Championship on the line!

ROH WORLD TELEVISION CHAMPIONSHIP

ROH WORLD TELEVISION CHAMPION KUSHIDA (IF CHAMPION) vs. TITAN

KUSHIDA is on the roll of a lifetime! After a loss in near record time to Hiromu Takahashi, KUSHIDA looked for a change of pace in North America and joined the ROH War of the Worlds Tour. On night one in Toronto, KUSHIDA defeated former ROH World Champion Jay Lethal. Then, in Philadelphia, KUSHIDA pinned ROH World Television Champion Marty Scurll to capture the title!

Immediately following that victory, it appeared the rigors of travel threatened to slow KUSHIDA down. KUSHIDA lost his first three matches in the Best of Super Juniors 2017 Tournament before winning five win-or-go-home matches, including the final against Will Ospreay to capture his second BOSJ win in three years!

KUSHIDA returned to ROH and defeated Scurll in a rematch to retain the championship at Best in the World. This weekend on ROH TV, KUSHIDA defends against Jay White and the winner faces Kenny King in Concord, NC. If KUSHIDA can run the gauntlet, he will face the tour’s wildcard, CMLL’s Titan!

Titan was added as a replacement for the injured Atlantis but now makes his own ROH debut with the ROH World Television Title on the line! Titan will face whomever the champion may be come London and has the biggest opportunity of his career in front of him! At just 26 years old, Titan is already a 10-year veteran of professional wrestling and is poised to pick up championship gold in London.

But if KUSHIDA should get to London still the ROH World Television Champion, there will be no element of surprise. KUSHIDA and Titan have teamed before, specifically during NJPW and CMLL FantasticaMania events! For that reason, Titan may be hoping for a Jay White or Kenny King win!

Two of the best athletes in the world will meet at War of the Worlds UK – London for the FIRST TIME, and the ROH World Television Title on the line! Who will head to Liverpool with the gold? Join us in London to find out! 

The stars of ROH, NJPW, CMLL, and REV PRO will do battle for three nights on the War of the Worlds UK Tour with a special Rev Pro Kick off event Thursday August 17! Don’t miss these once in a life-time events when the four best professional wrestling organizations in the world unite on the War of the Worlds UK Tour!
