After it was revealed yesterday that KUSHIDA would be making his return to Ring Of Honor for the Death Before Dishonor television taping in Las Vegas, Nevada on September 29th, today ROH has announced that New Japan Pro Wrestling’s EVIL, a member of Los Ingobernables de Japon, has also now been signed for the event:
The dark and mysterious EVIL makes his return to Ring of Honor at the Death Before Dishonor international television taping in Las Vegas on Sept. 29.
A member of Los Ingobernables de Japon, one of the top factions in the sport, EVIL is coming off a strong showing in New Japan Pro-Wrestling’s G1 Climax. In the tournament, EVIL scored victories over the likes of IWGP U.S. Champion Jay White and “Hangman” Adam Page and pushed eventual winner Hiroshi Tanahashi and Kazuchika Okada to the limit.
EVIL, a former IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Champion, NEVER Openweight Champion and three-time NEVER Openweight Six-Man Tag Team Champion, last appeared in ROH at the end of June.
The LIJ team of EVIL, SANADA and BUSHI came up just short against then-ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Champions The Kingdom (Matt Taven, TK O’Ryan and Vinny Marseglia) at the Best in the World pay-per-view, but they rebounded with a big win at the international television taping the next night over Bullet Club (The Young Bucks and Adam “Hangman” Page) and SoCal Uncensored (Christopher Daniels, Frankie Kazarian and Scorpio Sky) in a three-way match.
Who will LIJ’s “King of Darkness” seek to lay his wrath upon at the Death Before Dishonor TV taping? Join us in person in Las Vegas to find out!
