Check back each day this week as ROHWrestling.com celebrates Supercard of Honor Announcement Week with exclusive news regarding international participants, championship matches and information on how to meet all of your favorite ROH, NJPW and CMLL stars!
The ROH Executive Committee is thrilled to announce that NJPW star YOSHI-HASHI will compete at Supercard of Honor!
Previously announced was an ROH World Title match with Dalton Castle as challenger, and appearances by Japanese legend Jushin “Thunder” Liger and CMLL star Dragon Lee.
Yoshi-Hashi, who made his pro wrestling debut with NJPW in 2008, is coming off the most successful year of his career and has scored pinfall victories over some of the very best competitors in the sport.
In his first-ever match in the G1 Climax tournament this past summer, Yoshi-Hashi defeated Bullet Club superstar Kenny Omega, the eventual winner of the tournament and one of the most talked-about wrestlers in the world.
Two weeks ago, Yoshi-Hashi pinned ROH World Champion Adam Cole in a six-man tag match in Tokyo to lead CHAOS (Yoshi-Hashi and Roppongi Vice’s Rocky Romero and Beretta) over Bullet Club (Cole and The Young Bucks’ Matt and Nick Jackson).
Yoshi-Hashi engaged in a fierce rivalry with Sanada in 2016 and forced him to submit in a tag match last June in which Yoshi-Hashi and Tomohiro Ishii beat Sanada and Bushi.
While Yoshi-Hashi has spent most of his career in NJPW, he also wrestled for CMLL in 2010 and 2011 to learn a different style and expand his repertoire.
Who will the Yoshi-Hashi face at Supercard of Honor? Will the CHAOS member take on someone from rival Bullet Club on American soil, or will the rising Japanese star wrestle an ROH or CMLL competitor?
