ROH and New Japan again teaming up to present Honor Rising

Dec 19, 2018 - by Steve Gerweck

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.
