ROH: Coming To The UK In August

Ring of Honor, the USA’s top independent promotion, is proud to announce its first ever UK tour weekend on August 12th and 13th, 2006. For the first time ever ROH will fly its entire cast and crew overseas to bring European wrestling fans even closer to the most innovative pro wrestling product in the United States today.

The tour will make two stops with the first event taking place in the prestigious Liverpool Olympia on Saturday August 12. The ROH team will then travel south of the country to end its trip in one of UK wrestling fans favourite venues, the Broxbourne Civic Hall on Sunday August 13.

Tour organiser Alex Shane said: “Last year saw the birth of the UK Supershow featuring top US indie stars competing on UK events. This is the next step with an entire US indie promotion coming to the UK for a whole weekend of shows.

“This is not a UK show featuring ROH talent but a US style ROH show taking place in our own country. It will be something that no UK grappling fan will want to miss.”

ROH promoter Cary Silkin added: “We have a huge following over in the UK but the closest our British fans could get was to fly over to the States to get their ROH fix.

“This tour will show our fans that we want to pay them back for their loyalty to the product by bringing ROH to them. Our roster is really excited about this project and can’t wait to show UK fans what ROH has to offer them. We are all looking to impress and are 100% confident that we will leave British fans wanting more Ring of Honor.”
