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! In Pittsburgh, two stars look to rebound after vicious brawls at Death Before Dishonor!
JAY WHITE vs. JAY LETHAL
Jay White and Jay Lethal competed in two of the most-grueling and violent matches seen in Ring of Honor in 2017. Worst yet, these two stars, who have become accustomed to winning were on the losing end of their battles. For over two years, Lethal had held either one or both of the ROH World and/or the World Television Championships. For nearly six months on Ring of Honor television, White was undefeated, including defeating future ROH World Champion Christopher Daniels in White’s ROH debut.
In Pittsburgh, both look to get back on track in singles competition following their brutal nights in Vegas at Death Before Dishonor!
But question marks surround both men – how healthy is either man? Lethal will be fighting on short rest fighting the man that cost him the Honor Rumble, Frankie Kazarian, in Buffalo while White has purposefully not signed any matches in an effort to recover from serious injuries sustained against Punishment Martinez.
For White, the gamble is worth the potential payoff – if White can heal and defeat yet another former ROH World Champion, his stock will rise exponentially. For Lethal, White is a worthy challenger looking to make a name but one he is willing to defeat to get back on track as he looks for ROH World Title number two! Who will win in this first-time one-on-one match up? Join us in the Steel City to find out!
