Tomohiro Ishii has his Supercard of Honor matchup.
On April 7th, Ring of Honor will be hosting Supercard of Honor XII which already has a World Championship, Television Championship and Women's Championship scheduled. Today, Ring of Honor announced another match between Punishment Martinez and New Japan Pro Wrestling wrestler Tomohiro Ishii who was announced for the event last week.
Ring of Honor made the announcement on Twitter and the Ring of Honor website.
The following is an excerpt from the press release from ROHWrestling.com.
A match has been signed between two of the heaviest-hitting stars in the world for the heart of New Orleans when the near 6’7” Punishment Martinez takes on “The Stone Pitbull” in front of what already is the BIGGEST crowd in ROH history! But don’t expect too many hammerlocks, wrist locks, or headlocks – these two will look to inflict pain on one another!
Ishii, who shocked ROH fans when he won the World Television Title from Roderick Strong during 2016’s Honor Rising Tour, is one of the most intimidating wrestlers of all-time. Ishii has established himself as the greatest NEVER Openweight Champion ever, holding the championship a record four times for over a year.
Martinez will bring a height and reach advantage into this match but Ishii will bring power, explosiveness, and a veteran’s savvy in what will be a major test for both men! Who will win this bout? Join us in New Orleans to find out!
