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.

Here are the cards for the Honor Rising shows. Both nights will air live on New Japan World with English commentary available:

Night one (February 23rd) --
Kenny Omega, Kota Ibushi & Chase Owens vs. Cody, Marty Scurll & Hangman Page

Aside from that three-way, night one just looks like a waste of time. Who the f*ck thought anyone wanted to see Omega and Ibushi teaming together for the first time in many years be as apart of a six-man unit with f*cking Chase "I'm only in this company so I can take pinfalls when my team has to lose" Owens.

Also, Scurll and Page should really switch places on night 2. I know Scurll is the bigger star, but based on the story, Page makes the most sense in this spot.

And where is KUSHIDA on night two? Or Naito, Okada, Suzuki, Ospreay, Elgin, and the rest of the top of New Japan's card? And where are The Briscoes, MCMG, Kenny King, Punishment Martinez, and other pushed acts in ROH? These cards feel very weak. This isn't a joint show between ROH and New Japan, it's a joint show between three-quarter-assed ROH crew and a one-quarter-assed New Japan crew.

not disagreeing, but White and Page are likely going to build their title feud in their match, and this could be where Scurll decides on who's side he is on, so there may be a purpose to this.

Good points. I forgot that White vs. Page is a thing.
