In a rematch from last year's UK tour, Dalton Castle and Marty Scurll face off in Liverpool

Coming hot off the heels of the sold-out War of the Worlds 2017 Tour in North America, ROH is thrilled to announce, in conjunction with NJPW, CMLL and Revolution Pro Wrestling, the first-ever War of the Worlds UK Tour from August 18th, 2017 – August 20th, 2017! With stronger-than-ever partnerships, stars from the top professional wrestling organizations in the world will do battle over the course of three nights!

The tour comes in overwhelming response to not only the resoundingly successful ROH Reach for the Sky UK Tour, but also to the rapid sellouts of Ring of Honor, New Japan, CMLL, and Rev Pro events around the globe. The match possibilities are endless, dream teams could be formed, and various championships WILL be contested!

Officials from all four companies have been meeting throughout the early parts of the summer creating and signing matches the fans want to see. And a rematch between two of ROH’s most popular stars will take place in Liverpool!

DALTON CASTLE vs. “THE VILLAIN” MARTY SCURLL

“The Villain” Marty Scurll returns home to the UK for the War of the Worlds UK Tour a hero. On the last ROH UK tour, Scurll made an instant impact, winning the ROH World TV Title from Will Ospreay on the final night of the tour. But a match that goes overlooked because of that achievement was the match that set the tone of the tour, a win classified as an upset at the time: Scurll submitted Dalton Castle in his ROH debut! Castle, who has one of ROH’s best singles records in 2017, heads to Liverpool looking for revenge in a match-up of two of ROH’s most popular stars.

Recently, these two stars have seen their stocks rise. Scurll was riding high following a successful defense of the ROH World Television Championship on the War of the Worlds Pay Per View and a coordination as the newest Bullet Club member. The same night, Dalton Castle won a Four Corner Survival match against Silas Young, Bobby Fish, and the man that would dethrone Scurll, KUSHIDA! Their records established them as two of the top stars in ROH.

Despite being called a villain, Scurll’s antics in the ring and on the popular web series “Being the Elite” have endeared him to the ROH fans and fans around the globe, popularity rivaled, perhaps, only by Castle. Like Scurll, who had many big World Television title defenses, 2017 has been very good to Castle. Castle has picked up wins against stars like Jay Lethal, Bobby Fish, Jonathan Gresham, and Colt Cabana!  

With both men among the top contenders in ROH, this match is not only a dream rematch fans have demanded but it is also a match the will go a long way in determining contention for singles gold! Additionally, the ROH Board of Directors have pledged to revisit the stipulations surrounding this match should Scurll capture the championship from KUSHIDA in his championship rematch at Best in the World!

This rematch, with championship implications, will take place in Liverpool! Who will win this battle between two of the most popular stars in ROH? Join us to find out!

The stars of ROH, NJPW, CMLL, and REV PRO will do battle for three nights on the War of the Worlds UK Tour with a special Rev Pro Kickoff event Thursday August 17! Don’t miss these once in a lifetime events when the four best professional wrestling organizations in the world unite on the War of the Worlds UK Tour!
