ROH vs. NJPW



Ring of Honor recently announced two super shows that they will be co-promoting with New Japan Pro Wrestling in 2014. Here's the promo for the shows coming up this year:



NJPW has previously worked with promotions such as World Championship Wrestling (WCW), Total Non-Stop Action Wrestling (TNA), Full Impact Pro (FIP), WAR, and even the WWE. New Japan also happens to be the home of "Rainmaker" Kazuchika Okada, who made this ridiculously AWESOME entrance recently at "The New Beginning" event on Feb. 11, 2014:



In other news, AJ Styles did not appear at Preston City Wrestling's "Festive Fury" on Dec. 6 to face Lionheart (More information on their war of words here). Instead, Styles returned to TNA where he dropped his belt to the interim champion, Magnus, unifying the TNA World Heavyweight Championship. After negotiations over his contract with TNA broke down, Styles returned to ROH defeating Roderick Strong in his return followed by Jay Lethal. Styles is still slated for an appearance at PCW soon but more importantly, might make an appearance at the super shows with NJPW.
