After four tremendous joint events last week with New Japan Pro-Wrestling and the relationship between the two companies growing even stronger. ROH is now looking to make some what of a big impact with their return to NYC in August when they are at MCU Field in Brooklyn. It has been that they want to do something similar for this stadium that is comparable to their WrestleMania weekend shows.
For those of you that may not be aware the date of this event is Saturday August 22nd and the next night Sunday August 23rd will Summerslam live on PPV. Once again if you don't know Summerslam will be in the tri-state area this year at the Barclay Center in you guest Brooklyn, NY. This explains why ROH wants to have such a big show at MCU Field the night before because they are going up against the WWE PPV the next day. As of this writing there are no plans known to use Alberto El Patron for the event, but both parties would be willing to work together again.
I am well aware that in most cases WWE & ROH appeal to different audiences in almost all cases, but in some cases wrestling fans are wrestling fans. I completely agree with ROH's idea to want to put on a tremendous show the night before Summerslam as a way to set the bar high for the WWE the next night. There is no real way for us to predict what either company will be doing in August, but all we know is that right now it seems that the weekend of the 21-23 will be a great weekend for wrestling. Other then that sit back relax and enjoy.
