ROH Announces 2018 Dates, Female Tournament Returning To Company

Ring of Honor issued the following, announcing 2018 dates:

On-Sale Dates Announced For Big ROH Shows In Tennessee, North Carolina, Atlanta

Professional wrestling has a rich history in the South, and Ring of Honor will continue that tradition when the Best Wrestling on the Planet comes to Tennessee, North Carolina and Atlanta for live events in January and February 2018.

ROH will be in Nashville, Tenn., at the Nashville Municipal Auditorium on Saturday, Jan. 27 for an international TV taping; Concord, N.C., at Cabarrus Arena on Friday, Feb. 9 for an international TV taping; and Atlanta, Ga., at Center Stage on Saturday, Feb. 10 for a live event.

Tickets for each show will be available for RINGSIDE MEMBERS on Wednesday, Nov. 8 at 10 a.m. Eastern. Tickets go on sale to the GENERAL PUBLIC on Friday, Nov. 10 at 10 a.m. Eastern.

The action has been hotter than ever in ROH, which is coming off the highly successful Global Wars Tour that produced four sold-out shows on four consecutive nights in four different cities.

Every ROH live event is a unique experience and anything can happen on any given show. Reigning ROH World Champion Cody of Bullet Club has even made impromptu title defenses at recent events, so you never know when you’ll witness history at an ROH show.

Bullet Club—whose members include ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Champions The Young Bucks and Adam Page along with “The Villain” Marty Scurll—are arguably the most controversial and talked-about competitors in pro wrestling, and have even transcended the genre into the realm of pop culture. Bullet Club makes headlines wherever they appear, and they no doubt will be looking to cause a “spot of bother” in Nashville, Concord and Atlanta.

Other world-renowned stars who make the ROH roster second to none include former ROH World Champions Jay Lethal and Jay Briscoe, ROH World Television Champion Kenny King, ROH World Tag Team Champions The Motor City Machine Guns (Chris Sabin and Alex Shelley), The Addiction (Christopher Daniels and Frankie Kazarian), “Pro Wrestling’s Last Real Man” Silas Young, The Kingdom (Matt Taven, Vinny Marseglia and TK O’Ryan) and the demonic Punishment Martinez, among others.

In addition, Women of Honor continues to feature the most competitive and athletic women’s division in the sport.

There’s truly nothing like seeing the hard-hitting, in-your-face action that only ROH can provide LIVE. Don’t miss your chance to be there!
