The next match announcement for Field of Honor ’15 is…
NON TITLE MATCH
IWGP INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPION HIROOKI GOTO vs. FORMER ROH WORLD CHAMPION “UNBREAKABLE” MICHAEL ELGIN
As of this announcement both Hirooki Goto and Michael Elgin are in Japan on a collision course. They both sit tied with 6 points in New Japan Pro Wrestling’s annual G1 Climax Tournament. This grueling tournament holds the prestigious prize of a shot at the IWGP Heavyweight Championship.
“Unbreakable” Michael Elgin rededicated himself after an up and down 2014, which saw him achieve his dream of winning the ROH World Championship and then lose it a few months later. He struggled with personal issues that affected his career. Those issues shrouded him in controversy for the remainder of 2014. A rejuvenated and focused Elgin stormed into 2015 with a “take no prisoners attitude.” He dedicated himself to getting an invitation to the G1 Climax and did exactly that! Now he is taking New Japan Pro Wrestling by storm and turning heads with his impressive arsenal.
Hirooki Goto will be making his Ring of Honor debut the night before Field of Honor in Philadelphia. The 2x IWGP Intercontinental Champion has an impressive resume that includes multiple major championships in New Japan Pro Wrestling. He currently holds the prestigious IWGP Intercontinental Championship and is second in the history books for having the longest reign as champion. Goto will be looking to impress the fans of Ring of Honor in Brooklyn and a win over a former ROH World Champion is a great place to start.
This will be a very hard hitting contest. Both men are known for going above and beyond in the physicality department and this will assuredly be no different. Either of these men could come home as the winner of the G1 Climax which would be added pressure. A win for Elgin would almost guarantee a title opportunity for him at Goto’s championship. Goto is looking to establish himself in the U.S. and will need a win here to do that. Do not miss your chance to see two bulls collide head-on in a special environment!
It’s Elgin v Goto at Field of Honor and they will not disappoint! Order your tickets now!
