Ring of Honor issued the following:
Ring of Honor’s Aftershock Tour is lining up to be a can’t miss event of the summer! ROH returns to the historic 2300 Arena in South Philadelphia on Friday night August 21.
IWGP HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION KAZUCHIKA OKADA & ROPPONGI VICE vs. IWGP INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPION HIROOKI GOTO & THE BRISCOES
Current IWGP Heavyweight Champion KAZUCHIKA OKADA and fellow Chaos members ROCKY ROMERO & BERETTA, known as Roppongi Vice, will take on the IWGP Intercontinental Champion HIROOKI GOTO and former 8x ROH World Tag Team Champions THE BRISCOES in South Philly on Friday, August 21.
Rocky Romero has spent the better part of a week calling out tag teams in Ring of Honor on social media. Not happy with the loss suffered to the Briscoe’s at Death Before Dishonor XIII, Romero and Baretta want revenge. Joining them will be someone who most consider the best wrestler on the planet, current IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kazuchika Okada. The trio are members of the Chaos faction in Japan and are no strangers to teaming against common enemies.
The Briscoes are trying to keep their legacy moving and are striving for an amazing 9th ROH World Tag Team Championship. They received the challenge from Chaos and made a phone call to get one of the toughest men in New Japan Pro Wrestling to stand by their side, someone who fits the Briscoe brand of butt kicking: current IWGP Intercontinental Champion Hirooki Goto. Goto is known as a tough as nails hard hitting superstar who will without a doubt put a lot of people on notice in his Ring of Honor debut.
Roppongi Vice & Okada will be looking to send a message to their respective rivals and The Briscoes and Goto will be looking to do the same in South Philly!
This match will assuredly be one a lot of fans will be buzzing about. A few tickets remain, be sure to get yours! Click here to purchase tickets!
