Officials from NJPW and ROH have been working around the clock to finalize matches for the War of the Worlds Toronto stop. A first-time tag team bout has been signed for Toronto!

THE KINGDOM (MATT TAVEN & VINNY MARSEGLIA) vs. LOS INGOBERNABLES DE JAPON (IWGP INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPION TETSUYA NAITO & BUSHI)

Matt Taven sits just one championship away from having completed the Ring of Honor Grand Slam, having held three of the four current ROH Championships. Taven will challenge for the fourth at War of the Worlds – Dearborn against ROH World Champion Christopher Daniels. But, ahead of that, he will team with Kingdom member Vinny Marseglia against two of the most dangerous men in wrestling, representing Los Ingobernables de Japon, IWGP Intercontinental Champion Tetsuya Naito and BUSHI!

Naito reached the pinnacle of New Japan when he captured the IWGP Heavyweight Championship and rebounded following his loss of the championship, capturing the IWGP Intercontinental Championship and defending it successfully against Michael Elgin, Jay Lethal, and Hiroshi Tanahashi! One of the premiere wrestlers in the world, Naito teams with his LIJ group member BUSHI to comba the Kingdom! BUSHI is a former IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Champion and CMLL World Welterweight Champion with a history of tag team gold in his past!

On the surface, one may wonder why Taven would take a match so close to his World Championship bout against competitors the caliber of Naito and BUSHI. When asked directly by ROHWrestling.com, Taven responded, “Get lost, Melvins.” Who will win this first-time tag team bout at War of the Worlds – Toronto? Join us to find out!
