    Last year, Ring of Honor Wrestling debuted at MCU Park in Brooklyn, NY for the inaugural Field of Honor event. The night was filled with the stars of ROH displaying the Best Pro Wrestling on the Planet.

    Ring of Honor Wrestling will return to Brooklyn on Saturday, August 22nd, 2015 to present FIELD OF HONOR ’15 at MCU Park in Brooklyn, NY. This year, stars from NJPW will be joining us for even more incredible action!

    “Wrestling has a rich history at ballparks dating back almost a hundred years and we are excited to return to MCU Park, to celebrate that history by partnering with the Brooklyn Cyclones,” said Joe Koff, COO of Ring of Honor.

    The next match announcement for Field of Honor ’15 is…

    A matchup featuring the new IWGP Heavyweight Champion, Kazuchika “Rainmaker” Okada, facing off against the #1 Contender for the ROH World Championship, “Mr ROH" Roderick Strong, is now signed for Field of Honor ’15!

    Both men have carved out legendary careers, earning the top prizes in their respective companies and displaying the endurance and fortitude to win matches in high-pressure situations time after time. Just look at what each man has accomplished:

    Roderick Strong is one of two men to have earned the right to be called a “Triple Crown Winner” in Ring of Honor, having held the ROH World Championship, ROH World Television Championship and the ROH World Tag Team Championship. Strong walked into “Best in the World” holding one of the best won/lost records in ROH in 2015 and defeated Moose and “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin to become the #1 Contender for the ROH World Championship.

    After defeating “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles this past weekend, Kazuchika Okada is now a 3 time IWGP Heavyweight Champion. He is a two-time G1 Climax Tournament winner. In fact he is the youngest winner in that prestigious tournament’s history. Okada will come into Field of Honor fresh off competing in his 4th G1 Climax tournament. For those unfamiliar, the G1 Climax is 20 man tournament spread out across 19 events and is without a doubt one of the most physically grueling tournaments in wrestling! Okada will need to be as healthy as possible coming into this battle with Strong. He will be facing one of the hottest wrestlers today, one that is hungry and looking for every opportunity to prove he is the very best. This dream match is one that will leave the world talking!
