    WOTW Night 2 KO NAITO
    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. The first two nights will be “War of The Worlds” and will take place Tuesday May 12th and Wednesday May 13th, 2015 at the legendary 2300 Arena, deep in the heart of South Philadelphia.

    The updates are coming in quickly for matches and stars signed to this gigantic week of professional wrestling. Just signed for WAR OF THE WORLDS: NIGHT 2 in Philadelphia...

    - ADAM PAGE vs. WATANABE

    Adam Page's attitude has done a complete 180 since the last WAR OF THE WORLDS event. The former Decade "young boy" has embraced the bullying and intimidation encouraged by BJ Whitmer and transformed into an angrier, more aggressive athlete. Recently, Page has been preoccupied with humiliating ACH. But on May 13th he'll have to shift his focus when he takes on WATANABE!

    Watanabe will be coming off a huge match against Jay Lethal just one night before. Plus, he has his own history with The Decade. It seemed they were trying to influence him and possibly even recruit him last year, but Watanabe didn't bite. No doubt BJ Whitmer still takes offense to that slight, and he's been in Adam Page's ear pushing him as he prepares for WAR OF THE WORLDS.

    - MICHAEL ELGIN VS. KUSHIDA

    It's strength vs. speed on Night 2 of WAR OF THE WORLDS! Michael Elgin might be the powerful man in professional wrestling, amazing crowds night after night with seemingly impossible feats of strength. His opponent on May 13th won't be able to overpower him. But KUSHIDA brings his own brand of speed and agility to this match. Each of these athletes also has an arsenal of submission maneuvers he calls upon, so this promises to be a wild mix of styles and techniques. Both of KUSHIDA's matches at WAR OF THE WORLDS are against former ROH World Champions, so he has the opportunity to rocket up the standings himself on May 12th and 13th!

    *CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR FUTURE EPISODES OF ROH TV*

    - KYLE O'REILLY vs. TETSUYA NAITO

    Naito's first foray into ROH presents so many exciting possibilities for match-ups against the best professional wrestlers on the planet. His Night 2 opponent is a star of both the singles and tag team scene. Former ROH World Tag Team Champion Kyle O'Reilly may have just recently lost his title along with Bobby Fish, but he's cited by virtually everyone as a guaranteed future ROH World Champion! O'Reilly's ascension as a global force has seen him take on the past, present, and future of professional wrestling, including war against Samoa Joe on a recent episode of ROH TV. This is another "dream match" and now it's finally been signed. O'REILLY VS. NAITO on May 13th at WAR OF THE WORLDS: NIGHT 2!
