After their most recent trip to the United Kingdom for its Honor United events, today Ring Of Honor has announced its return to the UK this August which will feature the first annual Ring Of Honor International Cup, a tournament of matches pitting the United Kingdom stars against the stars of the United States:
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!

WWE News: Segment Added To Next Week’s SmackDown Live
More has been added to next week’s SmackDown Live!
Next week we will see the final episodes of WWE’s RAW and SmackDown Live before next Sunday’s Royal Rumble event and over the weekend we’ve had some announcements regarding what we will see on both shows (see the latest for RAW here).
Today, we learned that Tuesday’s edition of the blue brand will not only see Mustafa Ali take on Samoa Joe, but Rey Mysterio and Andrade will clash again in a rematch of last week’s epic encounter. Except this time around, it will be in a 2/3 Falls Match (read about that here).
Now, a segment has been revealed for SmackDown Live that will see Royal Rumble opponents AJ Styles and WWE Champion Daniel Bryan going “face-to-face”. What will make this interesting is the addition of a third body however, which will be none other than WWE Chairman Vince McMahon himself:
Tensions between WWE Champion “The New” Daniel Bryan and AJ Styles have continued to escalate over the past several weeks, and now, with their WWE Title Match in sight, the two will meet face-to-face this Tuesday night with Mr. McMahon moderating.
With both Superstars having attacked each other in arena concourses over consecutive weeks, animosity is running at an all-time high in this incredibly personal rivalry. And now, with Mr. McMahon moderating, who only a few weeks ago urged The Phenomenal One to bring out “the real” AJ Styles, will matters boil over just five nights before they square off at Royal Rumble?
Find out this Tuesday night on SmackDown LIVE!
WWE News: Women’s Royal Rumble Participants To Be Revealed On Twitter
More Women’s Royal Rumble competitors to be announced tomorrow!
We’re just over a week away now from one of WWE’s most anticipated pay-per-view events of the year, Royal Rumble, next Sunday from Chase Field in Phoenix.
With not much time left before the big show, there are still a large amount of spots left open in both the Men’s and Women’s Royal Rumble Matches (see the latest participant list here), but more particularly on the ladies’ side of things. At this juncture, there are eighteen slots left after Sasha Banks was finally, officially removed due to her getting a shot at RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey the same night. Of course, that doesn’t mean she still couldn’t enter the match.
As for those remaining spots, today WWE has announced that they will be doing a reveal starting at 12PM EST tomorrow on the company’s official Twitter account. It should be noted that it’s not known how many more Women’s Royal Rumble entrants will be revealed:
Let’s reveal who’s rumbling, shall we?
In a WWE first, a massive Women’s Royal Rumble Match reveal event will take place tomorrow, Sunday, Jan. 20. Starting at 12 p.m. ET on Twitter, a new Superstar will be revealed to be officially entering the Women’s Royal Rumble Match – every 30 minutes on WWE’s official Twitter page.
Which Superstars will take their place in the match that will guarantee one female Superstar a title opportunity at WrestleMania 35? Find out tomorrow as the field begins to take shape, exclusively on Twitter.
