NJPW-ROH Honor Rising cards: Omega teams with Ibushi


New Japan Pro Wrestling and Ring of Honor will be following up on the Bullet Club's ongoing split at Korakuen Hall later this month.

Kenny Omega & Kota Ibushi will be teaming up for the first time in a few years as NJPW and ROH present their two-show Honor Rising tour. Omega, Ibushi & Chase Owens teaming against Cody Rhodes, Marty Scurll & Hangman Page is the main event on night one. On night two, Omega & Ibushi take on Cody & Scurll.

Omega and Ibushi reunited in an angle at the New Beginning in Sapporo in January. Omega lost his IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship to Jay White and was laid out by Cody after the match, then Ibushi made the save for Omega and they hugged to close the show.

There will also be three title matches on the Honor Rising tour. Dalton Castle's ROH World Championship will be on the line as he faces Beretta on night two, with Bad Luck Fale & Guerrillas of Destiny defending their NEVER Six-Man Tag Team titles against Jushin Thunder Liger, Delirious & Cheeseburger on that show as well.

Night one has Beer City Bruiser challenging for Hirooki Goto's NEVER Openweight Championship.
