ROH has a new annual tournament.
Ring of Honor is returning to the United Kingdom in the three cities they visited earlier this year. This time they will have a tournament with eight wrestlers from the United Kingdom and United States. The tournament will be the first "International Cup" and Ring of Honor intends on having other tournaments putting the United States wrestlers against wrestlers from around the world. The winner of the tournament will face the ROH World Champion on the last night of the Honor Re-United.
The following is a press release about the tour from ROHWrestling.com.
Coming off the highly successful Honor United Tour, the Best Wrestling on the Planet, Ring of Honor, returns to the UK with the HONOR RE-UNITED TOUR, featuring an eight-man, United States vs. United Kingdom Tournament! The tournament is the First Annual Ring of Honor International Cup with the first round taking place in Edinburgh on Thursday August 16, the Semi Finals and Finals on Saturday August 18 in Doncaster, with the winner challenging for the Ring of Honor World Championship in the Main Event on Sunday August 19 in London!
The tournament marks the first of many anticipated International Cups, all of which possess endless possibilities, including the United States vs. Japan, United States vs. Germany, United States vs. Mexico, and more!
As we have seen from the recent Reach For The Sky, War of the Worlds – UK, and Honor United Tours, Ring of Honor brings in the very best UK stars to compete against its own stars year after year! Previous tours have brought stars like “The Villain” Marty Scurll, Will Ospreay, Mark Haskins, NWA Worlds Champion Nick Aldis, and others to ROH competition, with all making the most of their opportunities. Will we see a breakout star make the most of this opportunity or will an established star win the first-ever ROH International Cup?
The best way to experience ROH is to be there LIVE! There is nothing like the hard-hitting, in-your-face-action Ring of Honor can deliver LIVE. Be sure to get your tickets NOW!
Fightful Wrestling will have results and coverage of the tour.
