First Matches Set For ROH War Of The Worlds Tour

War of the Worlds
Ring of Honor: War of the Worlds

ROH (Ring of Honor) has announced the first matches for the War Of The Worlds Tour.

It all kicks off on Wednesday, May 8 in Buffalo, NY at the Buffalo RiverWorks and wraps up Sunday, May 12 in Chicago, IL at The Odeum in Villa Park. This year’s War of The Worlds tour will feature the fallout from the sold-out G1 Supercard event from Madison Square Garden.

PCO is set to challenge Matt Taven for the Ring of Honor World Championship in Toronto and Jay Lethal & Jonathan Gresham will challenge Guerrillas of Destiny (Tama Tonga & Tanga Loa) for the ROH Tag Team Titles in Buffalo.

ROH set up the World Title Match once PCO pinned Taven in a six-man tag match at ROH’s Masters of the Craft event on Sunday night. The result of that match featured Villain Enterprises (PCO, Marty Scurll & Brody King) retaining their Six-Man Tag Team Titles against The Kingdom (Taven, Vinny Marseglia & TK O’Ryan)

Taven became ROH World Champion when he beat Lethal and Scurll in a triple threat ladder match at the G1 Supercard event.

The annual tour features talent from New Japan Pro Wrestling. The promotion will be announcing more matches for these shows in the coming weeks. Here’s the full slate of shows:

  • Wednesday, May 8 – Buffalo, NY – Buffalo RiverWorks – 7:30pm
  • Thursday, May 9 – Toronto, ON – Ted Reeve Arena – 7:30pm
