Ring of Honor issued the following statement just hours after it was revealed by WWE that former New Japan Pro Wrestling star Shinsuke Nakamura would be debuting for NXT soon.
NAKAMURA OUT FOR VEGAS
Thanks to the Best Fans on the Planet, 2015 was Ring of Honor’s BIGGEST year to date! With our sights set on an EVEN BIGGER 2016, ROH heads to Las Vegas to celebrate our 14th ANNIVERSARY for two GIANT events emanating from Sam’s Town Casino!
Limited tickets still remain for the hard-hitting, fast-paced, Best Wrestling on the Planet when it returns to Sin City with the STARS OF NEW JAPAN PRO WRESTLING for the 14th Anniversary Pay Per View on Friday February 26 and our national television taping on Saturday February 27! Our pay per view main event is set: ROH World Champion JAY LETHAL with TRUTH MARTINI will defend against top challengers ADAM COLE and KYLE O’REILLY in a triple threat match! Keep ROH Wrestling tuned in on your Sinclair Broadcasting affiliates and Comet for more match announcements involving the stars of ROH and NJPW!
Many Ring of Honor fans were looking forward to “The King of Strong Style” SHINSUKE NAKAMURA appearing throughout Ring of Honor’s 14th Anniversary Weekend. It is with great regret that we must inform our fans that Nakamura will no longer be competing the weekend of ROH’s 14th Anniversary.
While Nakamura is unable to compete, a New Japan Pro Wrestling star has already signed to take “The King of Strong Style’s” place! Will it be a star making his first journey to the US? Will it be a star returning to ROH? Keep your browsers locked on ROHWrestling.com in the coming days to see which New Japan star will be replacing Nakamura in Sin City!
Limited tickets still remain for the 14th Anniversary Pay Per View extravaganza as well as our GIGANTIC NATIONAL TELEVISION TAPING the following night featuring the stars of New Japan Pro Wrestling!
