ROH News: CMLL Stars To Compete and First “Honor United” Matches Announced

Ring of Honor has developed some very interesting partnerships with NJPW in Japan, RevPro in UK and CMLL in Mexico, producing some great events and tours all around the world. And this month, the same way CMLL welcomed some ROH stars, Ring of Honor is going to welcome 4 CMLL Luchadores in its ring.

All-time great Atlantis will makes his long-awaited ROH debut on June 15 in San Antonio and  June 16 in Dallas. Atlantis has been competing since 1983 and successfully defended his mask around the globe. A cultural icon in Mexico and true Legend of Lucha Libre, Atlantis has held the CMLL World Lightheavyweight Championship for nearly two years.

Titán and Ultimo Guerrero will make their return at the Manhattan Center’s Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City on June 2.  Titán made his ROH debut last summer, challenging KUSHIDA for the ROH World Television Championship while Guerrero was last seen at Manhattan Mayhem teaming with Jay Lethal against Dalton Castle and Volador Jr. Guerrero has had a long history with ROH Champion Dalton Castle and his challenger Matt Taven.

Stuka Jr. will also make his ROH return after nearly two years while Guerrero Maya Jr. will make his ROH debut, on June 15 in San Antonio and June 16 in Dallas. The two high-flyers have been a standout in tag team competition and both held CMLL Arena Coliseo Tag Team Championships on multiple occasions. 

Four matches have already been announced for Edinburgh and London “Honor United” UK shows on May 24 and 26. Top Stars from both ROH and NJPW will square off in interesting title matches.

In Edinburgh, IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Champions Evil and SANADA will face off The Addiction of Christopher Daniels and Frankie Kazarian. If the title will not be on the line, a win for Daniels and Kazarian could put them on the hunt of both IWGP and ROH Tag Team titles. In the main event, The Briscoes will put the ROH World Tag Team Championships on the line against Cody and Adam Page.

In London, ROH World Television Champion Silas Young, Hiroshi Tanahashi, SANADA will face off in a Four Corner Survival Match.
