Ultimo Guerrero to challenge for ROH World title

One of CMLL’s biggest stars will be next to challenge the Ring of Honor champion.

It was announced on Ring of Honor’s website that Ultimo Guerrero will challenge Dalton Castle for the Ring of Honor world title at New York City Excellence on June 2. It would be the first time a CMLL star has challenged for the title since the company forged a relationship with Ring of Honor back in  2016.

They did an angle back at the 16th anniversary show where Ultimo Guerrero stole the ROH title during a match with him and Volador Jr. against Jay Lethal and Dalton Castle. He later handed it back, with announcers speculating that he might want a title match down the line.

Titan, also from CMLL, has been signed for the event. He is set to face Cody. Other names signed for the show include The Kingdom, Silas Young, The Briscoes, Sumie Sakai, The Young Bucks. Kenny King, Jay Lethal, Adam Page, Bully Ray and a host of other talent. 

New York City Excellence, a television taping, will be held at the Hammerstein Ballroom on June 2 in New York City.
