The working agreement with ROH & New Japan takes another step forward as they will be holding their yearly co-promoted event in May. The only difference this year is that it won't be in the United States or Japan, but instead it will be held in the United Kingdom. According to ROHWrestling.com this event will feature stars from both New Japan and Ring of Honor as ROH bring the "Best Wrestling on the planet" to the UK. Thus far talent like such as The Kingdom, Cody, Jay Lethal, Young Bucks, Adam Page, Bully Ray, and various others have been confirmed with more likely to be added.
After drawing a record crowd over Wrestlemania Weekend it is clear that ROH is the hottest they have ever been and I would guess this means these shows have all the making of being the biggest yet. In all likely the expense is what prevents ROH from visiting the UK more but starting on May 24 Ring of Honor will make their highly anticipated return with the start of the Honor United Tour. Though American fans can be special it is always the case that when an American company heads overseas the fans show just how "different" they are and excited they can be to see wrestling they don't always get live. Overall this might not seem like a big deal, but in reality when a company with a smaller budget like ROH makes the trip overseas it is always a big deal as it shows they are confident enough to try and expand more.
