Ring Of Honor announced today that they will be running two shows in February and the ROH title will be defended at that show.
Also, there will be wrestlers from New Japan appearing at the ROH 14th anniversary show in Las Vegas in February.
They will be expanding the annual New Japan tour to include more cities.
They also made a point to mention that their relationship with New Japan is stronger than ever. I don’t think there was any serious strain on the relationship. As it was noted to me, the Jushin “Thunder” Liger booking for NXT Takeover is a one-off and Liger wanted to do it because he has never wrestled in a WWE ring before so this is not a case of WWE looking to get New Japan talent on a regular basis like ROH does.
