Ring of Honor announced on Monday that they will be bringing in stars from New Japan Pro Wrestling for their first PPV event of 2016, their 14th anniversary show, as well as for television tapings the next day.

Both the 2/26 PPV and the 2/27 taping for four weeks of TV will be held at Sam's Town Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, NV. The weekend is timed to take place between New Japan tours so the top stars will be available, ensuring they'll be on several weeks of ROH TV.

The first name publicly announced is New Japan's most charismatic wrestler, current IC champion Shinsuke Nakamura with other names to be announces soon.

Just last week, ROH announced their move to Comet TV, a Sinclair-owned science fiction station that is available in some form or fashion in 65 million homes. The company's final show on Destination America will be this Wednesday at 11 PM EST.
