ROH And NJPW Announce 4th Annual Honor Rising Event

Ring of Honor and NJPW have had a very successful partnership for years now. One benefit of the said partnership is the Honor Rising shows that ROH gets to put on in Japan. ROH has announced the 4th Honor Rising show is official for 2019:

For the fourth consecutive year, Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro-Wrestling will join forces to present Honor Rising, two nights of incredible action featuring the stars of ROH and NJPW at Korakuen Hall in Tokyo on Feb. 22-23.

Honor Rising traditionally features first-time-ever matches pitting top competitors from the two companies against one another, as well as tag matches in which ROH and NJPW stars team together. The ROH World Championship has been defended every year at Honor Rising events, which have all been held at Korakuen Hall.

ROH and NJPW have had a symbiotic working relationship since 2014 in which the companies exchange talent. Honor Rising takes place just seven weeks before G1 Supercard, a historic show co-promoted by ROH and NJPW at New York City’s Madison Square Garden on April 6. G1 Supercard sold out within minutes after going on sale to the general public.

Some of the many memorable moments from past Honor Rising shows include Tomohiro Ishii winning the ROH World Television Title from Roderick Strong, Jay Lethal and Tetsuya Naito forming a dream team and The Golden Lovers (Kenny Omega and Kota Ibushi) taking on Bullet Club’s Cody and Marty Scurll.

Keep it locked on and the ROH App for talent and match announcements.
