    For the second year in a row, Ring of Honor celebrates its anniversary in LAS VEGAS! On February 26th, all your favorite ROH stars head to the fight capital of the world for ROH's 14TH ANNIVERSARY! Not only will this be a massive live event for all in attendance, the 14TH ANNIVERSARY is available LIVE on pay-per-view. Plus, this year's anniversary features stars from NEW JAPAN PRO WRESTLING!

    Just one week after some of ROH's athletes journey to Japan for a weekend of collaborative events, some of the top stars from NJPW - including current IWGP Heavyweight Champion OKADA - will travel to Las Vegas and compete at the 14TH ANNIVERSARY! And the very next night, February 27th, Ring of Honor is back at Sam's Town Live! for an ROH television taping featuring all of the fallout from the 14 ANNIVERSARY!

    Just signed for February 26th as ROH celebrates its 14TH ANNIVERSARY:

    TOMOHIRO ISHII VS. HIROOKI GOTO

    One of the most requested talents in the history of Ring of Honor FINALLY makes his way to the 14TH ANNIVERSARY! Fans have been clamoring to see Tomohiro Ishii compete inside an ROH ring. As part of the ever-growing relationship between ROH and New Japan Pro Wrestling, you can see Ishii on February 26th LIVE on pay-per-view!

    Tomohiro Ishii is a nearly twenty year veteran of professional wrestling, but it is relatively recently that he gained international acclaim and attention. He has made up for lost time quickly! This includes capturing the NEVER Openweight Championship four times, with his most recent reign concluding mere weeks ago at NJPW Wrestle Kingdom. As a member of CHAOS alongside current IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kazuchika Okada, Ishii is a charismatic star known for his brawling as well as his unique persona. And he finally competes for Ring of Honor on February 26th!

    His opponent that night is not unfamiliar to ROH audiences or to Ishii himself: HIROOKI GOTO! This highly decorated competitor makes his return to Ring of Honor for the 14 ANNIVERSARY. ROH fans got to see Goto live at FIELD OF HONOR when he battled Michael Elgin! Prior to that encounter, Goto had teamed up with the one and only Briscoes to take on RPG Vice and Okada!

    But that match was just a taste of CHAOS vs. Goto, a rivalry that has since intensified. Goto has his sights set on Okada's IWGP Heavyweight Championship. That can't sit well with fellow CHAOS member Tomohiro Ishii! The hostilities between CHAOS and Goto add yet another layer of intensity to what was already certain to be an epic encounter in Sin City.

    Tickets for the 14th Anniversary Pay Per View event are SOLD OUT, but you can still see the stars of ROH & New Japan collide the National TV Taping on Saturday, February 27th. Order your tickets now by clicking HERE, as this event is expected to sell out as well!

    We will see you there live as Ring of Honor celebrates 14 years of the best wrestling on the planet!

  2. Nice. Although I was hoping Ishii would face some of the ROH guys.
     
  3. On paper a good match indeed but this is pretty disappointing, wanted to see them against a few roh talents though that was the point in bringing them over for this. oh well.
