It’ll be inter-promotional faction warfare when The Kingdom (Vinny Marseglia and TK O’Ryan) from Ring of Honor takes on Los Ingobernables de Japon (EVIL and SANADA) from New Japan Pro-Wrestling at the War of the Worlds tour stop in Toronto on May 9.
Both teams are well decorated. Marseglia and O’Ryan are three-time former co-holders of the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Titles along with Kingdom leader Matt Taven, while EVIL and SANADA are two-time former IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Champions.
Marseglia and O’Ryan have never faced EVIL and SANADA in a traditional tag team match, but they did meet in a six-man tag bout at the Best in the World pay-per-view in June, when The Kingdom successfully defended their ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Titles against LIJ’s EVIL, SANADA and BUSHI.
Marseglia and O’Ryan are coming off a strong showing in the Honor Rumble at Madison Square Garden earlier his month. EVIL and SANADA came up short in the four-way tag match for the ROH and IWGP Heavyweight Tag Titles that night, but two weeks earlier SANADA made it all the way to the finals of the prestigious New Japan Cup.
Join us in Toronto or live on HonorClub to find out which of these talented teams will prevail!
