Ring of Honor has announced that they will be returning to the UK this August for the first ever War of the Worlds UK Tour.
ROH will be joining Rev Pro, CMLL and New Japan Pro Wrestling for three dates in London, Liverpool and Edinburgh. Ring of Honor sent out the following press release for the Tour:
“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!
ALSO, RPW (Rev Pro) will host their annual ‘Summer Sizzler’, which will serve as a special Kickoff Event on Thursday August 17 at York Hall in London! From there, the stars of ROH, CMLL, NJPW, and RPW will compete at York Hall on Friday August 18 and then head the Liverpool Olympia on Saturday August 19! The tour will wrap up on August 20th in at the Edinburgh Corn Exchange to mark ROH’s first ever event in Scotland! Tickets for the most-recent WOTW USA Tour sold out so keep it locked into ROHWrestling.com to ensure you are the first to have the opportunity to purchase tickets to these historic events!
If history is any indication, anything can and will happen on these tours! On the Reach for the Sky Tour, the ROH World Television Title changed hands twice, while on the most recent War of the Worlds Tour, a New Japan star captured the World Television title!”
The last UK tour for Ring of Honor saw the company debuts of Marty Scurll and Will Ospreay, although there has been no indication of any debutants for this tour expect Ring of Honor to make a blockbuster announcement for their return to one of the hotbeds of pro wrestling later this year.
Ring of Honor has also announced that CMLL stars Atlantis, Rey Bucanero, Ultimo Guerrero and Mistico will be joining the historic tour in August.
