  1. ISHII vs EVIL
    The Ring of Honor World Television Championship will be on the line in Japan as ROH Matchmaker Nigel McGuinness has signed Tomohiro Ishii’s first championship defense outside of the United States!

    Ishii, who won the championship from “Mr. ROH” Roderick Strong in Tokyo at Night 1 of Honor Rising, will face EVIL at Road to Invasion Attack on Sunday March 20 at Baycom Gymnasium in Hyogo!

    ROH fans were shocked when the New Japan Pro Wrestling star known the world over as “The Stone Pitbull” captured ROH gold in Japan! The hard-hitting, bulldozing Ishii is putting his money where his mouth is, fulfilling the promise of defending the championship worldwide against the world’s best competition! During the 14th Anniversary weekend, Ishii defeated Strong and number one contender Bobby Fish in a triple-threat match live on pay per view before completing a successful defense against Cedric Alexander the next night at a national television taping!

    Ishii has immediately established himself as a fighting champion but he may meet his match in Hyogo when he stands across the ring from Los Ingobernables’ EVIL! After a successful U.S. excursion from New Japan to Ring of Honor, Takaaki Watanabe returned to Japan and revealed himself to be The King of All Darkness, EVIL! With his new attitude and an alliance formed with Naito and Bushi, EVIL has shown his true colors – traits that have his former fans booing but tactics that have translated into success. While the transformation has left him nearly unrecognizable to ROH fans, EVIL has embraced his inner darkness and earned a shot at the ROH World Television Championship!

    Will the tough-as-nails Ishii strike his way to victory and outpower EVIL or will the venom of Los Ingobernables pour through Hyogo and power EVIL to the ROH World Television championship? Will Naito and Bushi be factors on the outside? And what would an EVIL victory mean across the globe with alliances seemingly established with ROH’s House of Truth and in Mexico? We will find out on March 20!
