We have had the pleasure of working with PCW for the past few years, as they have brought several ROH wrestlers over for PCW events. In order to help PCW with promotion of their events, we allowed PCW to use the ROH logo and we were very happy with the work we did together.
Over the past few years, ROH has also been working toward producing our own tour of the UK, as the demand for our product has grown. It has been nearly a decade since we last produced a ROH-promoted tour and 2016 was the right time.
At the same time, ROH’s global presence has grown, thanks to working relationships with NJPW and most recently CMLL, while simultaneously growing our touring and television base domestically in the US.
We understand PCW felt slighted with our plans to promote our own tour and never did we plan to conflict with any of their dates. But with our schedule as currently constructed, only a few dates were available and unfortunately, there was a conflict.
When discussed, PCW and ROH agreed to not work together on a 2016 series of shows but the door was always open for the future.
