The company said that more details will be announced for the pre-show soon. We’ll keep you updated as more information is revealed.
As for the main card of the event, the IWGP Heavyweight Champion Jay White will defend his title against the winner of the New Japan Cup. Guerrillas of Destiny (Tama Tonga and Tanga Loa) will go against The Briscoe Brothers (Jay Briscoe and Mark Briscoe) in a winner takes all tag team match for both the IWGP Tag Team Championship and ROH World Tag Team Championship. A three-way match for the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship match is also set in place where the champion Taiji Ishimori will defend against Dragon Lee and Bandido.
