GLOBAL MAIN EVENT OFFICIAL 

We are less than one month away from GLOBAL WARS and the WAR OF THE WORLDS TOUR!  The collaborative relationship between Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro Wrestling continues, bringing you matches and experiences you can’t find anywhere else!  First up, on Sunday May 8th, GLOBAL WARS is coming to you LIVE on pay-per-view from Chicago Ridge.  This massive event kicks off a busy week for the stars of ROH and NJPW, who are hitting the road to Dearborn, Toronto, and New York City! 

A challenge was issued last month at Supercard of Honor X in Dallas. ROH World Champion Jay Lethal was taken to the limit Night One against the 2016 Top Prospect Lio Rush, with Rush coming within an eyelash of winning the ROH World Champion in his first attempt! Following the bout, ROH legend COLT CABANA made his surprise return after a five year absence, confronting “The Greatest First Generation Wrestler” after Lethal claimed he had run out of challengers for his ROH World Championship!

On Night Two, Lethal, flanked once again by the “Poison Princess” Taeler Hendrix dismissively defeated Cheeseburger, a handpicked challenger by Lethal, who claimed ‘Burger was more deserving of a title match than Cabana. Cabana once again appeared, this time to challenge Lethal right then and right there! Cabana used the element of surprise to defeat Lethal with a roll-up!

Because of Cabana’s victory in Dallas, ROH Matchmaker Nigel McGuinness has announced that the main event of GLOBAL WARS live from Chicago Ridge, IL on PPV will be hometown hero, Chicago native COLT CABANA versus ROH WORLD CHAMPION JAY LETHAL for the ROH WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!

On a night that the biggest stars in the world from New Japan and Ring of Honor will compete, Cabana once again returns to a ROH ring and will look to win the only championship that has ever mattered to him, one that has eluded him throughout his career.

Cabana has challenged for the championship before, including a shot in Chicago in 2009 which included a stipulation where he could never challenge for the ROH World Championship in his hometown again. As part of the negotiations with Cabana to return to ROH for a series of dates Colt wanted to be able to compete for the ROH World Championship in Chicago, which Nigel has granted him and the stipulation has been overturned. Seven years later, Cabana looks to cash in his millions of miles of world travel and experience against a man that has held a ROH World singles championship for two consecutive years.
