Prior to last night’s 8/21 ROH TV Tapings in Philadelphia, ROH COO Joe Koff and New Japan president Naoki Sugibayashi announced the following to the live crowd:

* Their working relationship is stronger than ever

* Ring of Honor will be running two live events in Japan in February 2016, with the ROH Title defended on those shows

* New Japan stars will be part of the 14th Anniversary show for ROH in February in Las Vegas

* The annual New Japan US tour in May will be expanded to more cities and with more New Japan talent, including ones that have not gotten to see the New Japan talent live before.

ROH & New Japan will be releasing an official presser on the announcement over the weekend.
