KUSHIDA teams with Titan and Mistico to take on Los Ingobernables de Japon


 
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!
 
Officials from all four companies have been meeting throughout the early parts of the summer creating and signing matches the fans want to see. And in Edinburgh, a six-man tag has been signed with international significance!
 
LOS INGOBERNABLES DE JAPON (TETSUYA NAITO, NEVER OPENWEIGHT SIX MEN TAG CHAMPION BUSHI, & NEVER OPENWEIGHT SIX MEN TAG CHAMPION SANADA) vs. ROH WORLD TELEVISION CHAMPION KUSHIDA, MISTICO, & TITAN
 
Los Ingobernables de Japon have been the toast of the wrestling world for well over a year, seeing Tetsuya Naito capture the IWGP Heavyweight Championship, BUSHI and Hiromu Takahashi hold the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Championship, and BUSHI, EVIL, and Sanada dominate the NEVER Openweight Six Men Championship division. In the 27th G1 Tournament, Naito continues to prove while he is one of the best in the world while EVIL and SANADA have put their names on the map as singles stars to be reckoned with.
 
The quintet has been formidable in singles up through ten-man tag team competition and they look to build upon that success in Edinburgh when Naito, BUSHI, and SANADA team up to face a star-studded international trio of current ROH World TV Champion KUSHIDA and CMLL stars Titan and Mistico! There is no doubt this trio has what it takes to defeat LIJ but can LIJ’s opponents co-exist?
 
On Friday in London, Titan challenges KUSHIDA for the ROH World TV Title. And while Titan and Mistico have teamed together in a trios bout once before, the two-time former Mexican National Welterweight Champion defeated Mistico to capture his second title in their only meeting. If KUSHIDA, Mistico, and Titan are all able to get on the same page, the key factor may come down to conditioning.
 
LIJ faces Bullet Club in London’s main event while SANADA has the opportunity of a lifetime to defeat “The American Nightmare” Cody on digital Pay Per View in Liverpool. Meanwhile, KUSHIDA defends against Titan in London before the winner moves on to face Hiromu Takahashi, “The Villain” Marty Scurll, and Dalton Castle in Liverpool! Finally, Mistico has a ROH World Six Man Tag Team Championship opportunity in London before teaming with Titan against Ultimo Guerrero and Rey Buccanero. On the final night of the tour, the winner of this bout may be the team that has the biggest gas tank!
