WOTW NIGHT 1 – FIRST 3 MATCHES SIGNED
TUESDAY, MAY 12TH, 2015 – 23OO ARENA – PHILADELPHIA, PA
Wrestling fans around the world have been buzzing since the announcement that New Japan Pro Wrestling stars will be appearing on four Ring of Honor events. The first two nights will be “War of The Worlds” and will take place Tuesday May 12th and Wednesday May 13th, 2015 at the legendary 2300 Arena, deep in the heart of South Philadelphia.
The updates are coming in quickly for matches and stars signed to this gigantic week of professional wrestling. Just signed for WAR OF THE WORLDS: NIGHT 1 in Philadelphia…
– DELIRIOUS vs. GEDO
DELIROUS returns to action on May 12th! He takes on longtime NJPW star, Gedo. No one was expecting to see Delirious in the ring, but he wasn’t about to miss out on such a huge night in ROH history. This show WILL sell out but there are still some standing room only tickets available. You never know when – or if! – you’ll get to see Delirious next so don’t miss this chance!
– RODERICK STRONG vs. KUSHIDA
Roderick Strong continues to prove why he is “Mr. ROH” night after night, and on May 12th he welcomes KUSHIDA back to Ring of Honor! We last saw the NJPW star at FINAL BATTLE, when he and his partner, Alex Shelley, were unsuccessful in their attempt to capture the World Tag Team Championship. Now KUSHIDA has the opportunity to beat a former ROH World Champion and start the week off with a huge singles victory!
– JAY LETHAL w/TRUTH MARTINI vs. WATANABE
Watanabe has spent over a year touring the world and gaining experience wherever can, including frequent appearances in Ring of Honor. But on May 12th he takes on the man who claims he is the best champion in professional wrestling, Jay Lethal. Lethal has defeated just about everyone, including the legendary Jushin Thunder Liger as SUPERCARD OF HONOR IX. The world will be watching when Watanabe faces his biggest challenge yet!
