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!

Officials from ROH and NJPW have been working around the clock and matches are being signed daily! The air traffic controllers in the Chicagoland Area will be working overtime when a high-flying dream match has beee signed! FLIP GORDON vs. “THE AERIAL ASSASSIN” WILL OSPREAY
Will Ospreay captured the ROH World Television Championship in on his very first night. He did so with an array of innovative, high-flying maneuvers. Ospreay parlayed that success into huge wins as a member of CHAOS in New Japan Pro-Wrestling as well as the deciding pinfall in the main event of War of the Worlds – Dearborn against Bullet Club and a win against Jay White at the War of the Worlds Pay Per View! Ospreay reached the Best of Super Juniors Finals and has continued to be one of the most innovative aerial competitors in all of wrestling!
Standing across the ring from the British star may be his American mirror image.
Flip Gordon was one of independent wrestling’s hottest commodities before signing with Ring of Honor. The pride of Kalispell, MT is a C4 explosives expert in the Army National Guard but is equally explosive in the ring with innovative moves like the Kinder Surprise springboard superkick and the Four Nifty. Gordon has begun to pick up wins in singles competition in Ring of Honor and has a chance to assert himself as the world’s top high flyer in Chicago!
