roh​New Japan Pro Wrestling star and current NWA World Heavyweight Champion Satoshi Kojima will be taking a trip to the United States this May, along with at least eight other NJPW stars.

However, at this time Satoshi is not scheduled to compete for Ring of Honor at the May 10th "Global Wars" event, or at "War of the Worlds" on May 17th. Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer stated weeks ago that the NWA does not want its title or the current champion appearing for Ring of Honor events. 

Satoshi will instead be making an appearance at an NWA Houston show on May 31st, at the Cauliflower Alley Club annual reunion from June 2-4, and at another NWA show in Texas. 

The following New Japan stars have been announced for the Ring of Honor iPPV events: 

-IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kazuchika Okada
-IWGP Intercontinental Champion Hiroshi Tanahashi
-Jushin "Thunder" Liger
-Shinsuke Nakamura
-Gedo & Jado
-Yijiro KUSHIDA
