Heavy Hitters Battle in Buffalo when Shane Taylor and Hikuleo Face Off For The First Time Ever

The partnership between Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro-Wrestling has never been stronger following the historic G1 Supercard in front of a sold-out Madison Square Garden! The fallout from G1 Supercard will be on full display when ROH and NJPW partner once again to deliver the 2019 War of the Worlds Tour! A staple since 2014, the tour is in its sixth year and will feature dream matches, title matches, and first-time matches you cannot see anywhere else with the stars of ROH and NJPW!

Two of the biggest men on the rosters of Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro-Wrestling will do battle in Buffalo! Bullet Club’s Hikuleo makes his ROH debut when he takes on Shane Taylor in a first-time superheavyweight clash!

HIKULEO vs. SHANE TAYLOR

Shane Taylor’s 2019 has seen him pick up big wins on television, including a Six-Man Mayhem Match from Atlanta and against the monstrous Luchasaurus from Las Vegas, while also making his New Japan debut on the New Japan USA tour earlier this year. 

Taylor has firmly entrenched himself in the ROH World Television Championship scene and has begun to make a big leap in 2019. Taylor is welcoming all comers, including the not-so-little little brother of ROH World Tag Team Champions Guerillas of Destiny, Hikuleo!

Hikuleo makes his ROH debut in Buffalo and the 6’8” Hikuleo may be the one man on the War of the Worlds Tour big enough and bad enough to step to Shane Taylor! Hikuleo emerged from the New Japan Dojo System as a Young Lion, paying his dues before joining his brothers Tama Tonga and Tonga Loa in Bullet Club. By 2018, he had already competed in the Tokyo Dome and by 2019, he was in his first New Japan Cup!

Who will win this first-time clash of these two behemoths? Join us in Buffalo to find out!

ROH and NJPW’s War of the Worlds Tour returns for the sixth-straight year! While Buffalo, Toronto, and Grand Rapids events are broadcasting LIVE for HonorClub and Chicago is being taped for international television, there is nothing like seeing the stars LIVE!
