    Wrestling fans around the world have been buzzing since the announcement that New Japan Pro Wrestling stars will be appearing on four Ring of Honor events. On May 15th and 16th, GLOBAL WARS hits Toronto! The two-day conclusion of this massive collaboration between ROH and NJPW will feature an iPPV on Night 1 and a taping of ROH TV on Night 2. GLOBAL WARS: Night 1 will be available on iPPV for just $19.99 right HERE, and you will be able to pre order it starting, Friday, May 8th, 2015.

    The updates are coming in quickly for matches and stars signed to this gigantic week of professional wrestling. Just signed for the ROH iPPV GLOBAL WARS: Night 1 on May 15th...

    THE KINGDOM (MICHAEL BENNETT & MATT TAVEN) w/Maria Kanellis vs. MATT SYDAL & JUSHIN THUDER LIGER

    The current IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Champions take on an unlikely new team in Matt Sydal and Jushin Thunder Liger! While in most cases the advantage always goes to the more cohesive team, the union of Sydal and Liger combines so much talent that The Kingdom can't let their guard down in Toronto. As always, Bennett and Taven have Maria Kanellis patrolling ringside and ready to interfere whenever and however necessary.

    FOUR CORNER TAG SURVIVAL
    IWGP JUNIOR HEAVYWEIGHT TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS RPG VICE vs. ROH WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS THE ADDICTION vs. REDRAGON vs. THE DECADE’S ADAM PAGE & BJ WHITMER

    Four teams, eight individuals and one goal. Victory. But with the newly crowned ROH World Tag Team Champions, the Addiction, there is one team with a huge bulls-eye on them and three teams looking to strike.

    But RPG Vice comes into this battle as the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Champions and will find themselves as targets as well. The key to victory could be focus and which team can harness it, especially for reDRagon. They want revenge and their titles back from the Addiction but Romero and Beretta hold titles that used to belong to Fish and O’Reilly as well.

    The Decade team of Page and Whitmer seem to have the ability to steal wins and outsmart their opponents. Can the Decade quietly slip through and pick up a win in this high-profile, one-fall match? Or will champions past and present control the action and fight it out for victory?

    CEDRIC ALEXANDER vs. KAZUCHIKA OKADA

    One year ago, at War of the Worlds in New York, Cedric Alexander was scheduled to face former IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kazuchika Okada. And after a win at Global Wars over then-Decade member Roderick Strong, it looked as if Cedric would head to NYC with a ton of momentum into the huge test against Okada.

    However, when the Decade struck Alexander following his win over Roddy, their sneak attack would leave Cedric injured and unable to compete against Okada. Now, one year later, Cedric gets his match against Okada and looks to turn things around in what has been a challenging time for the explosive athlete from Charlotte. Cedric found a winning formula in 2014 but has been hard-pressed to consistently get back in the “winner’s circle” since last summer.

    Getting the match is one thing but winning can be another. Defeating Okada will take a Herculean effort, as the former IWGP Heavyweight Champion has once again set his sights on the top title in New Japan Pro Wrestling. Talented, focused and driven, Okada will deliver like he always does but can Cedric Alexander quiet the doubters and get his first big win of 2015?
