A match that Ring of Honor fans have long desired has been officially signed for ROH’s return to the 2300 Arena. Former ROH World Champion Adam Cole will take on “The King of Strong Style” Shinsuke Nakamura of New Japan Pro Wrestling in a true dream match.

Adam Cole returned from injury this past May at the ROH/NJPW’s War of The Worlds. He surprised everyone by announcing he was going to challenge then-IWGP Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles. The stunned audience couldn’t believe the fortitude of Cole. He was fresh off major shoulder and elbow surgery and he didn’t take it easy on his return. He went right at Styles and nearly defeated him. Cole showed the world that he was back. Since that point Cole has been in a state of flux, not only in the ring, but apparently in his relationship with his Kingdom stablemates.

“The King of Strong Style” Shinsuke Nakamura is a phenomenon that Ring of Honor Fans can’t get enough of. The charismatic in-ring artist brings an unbridled energy to everything he does. His most recent tour of Ring of Honor saw him score major wins over The Briscoe’s, Jushin Liger, ACH & “Mr ROH” Roderick Strong. These wins speak volumes for Nakamura’s immense talents.

These two huge stars have never met inside the ring. Cole is finding his groove since returning from injury and a win over Nakamura would not only send shockwaves through Ring of Honor, but send a clear message to the stars of New Japan Pro Wrestling as well. Nakamura would love nothing more than to add the head of another major ROH superstar to his growing mantle. Cole is healthy and ready. Nakamura will be fresh off the grueling G1 Climax Tournament. Will Nakamura be ripe for the picking? Be there in South Philadelphia as two of the very best in the world collide for this first time!
