Hiromu Takahashi and Mark Haskins Clash at War of the Worlds UK: Edinburgh


 
Coming hot off the heels of the sold-out War of the Worlds 2017 Tour in North America, ROH is thrilled to announce, in conjunction with NJPW, CMLL, and Revolution Pro Wrestling, the first-ever War of the Worlds UK Tour from August 18th, 2017 – August 20th, 2017! With stronger-than-ever partnerships, stars from the top professional wrestling organizations in the world will do battle over the course of three nights!
 
The tour comes in overwhelming response to not only the resoundingly successful ROH Reach for the Sky UK Tour, but also to the rapid sellouts of Ring of Honor, New Japan, CMLL, and Rev Pro events around the globe. The match possibilities are endless, dream teams could be formed, and various championships WILL be contested!
 
Officials from all four companies have been meeting throughout the early parts of the summer creating and signing matches the fans want to see. And in Edinburgh, two of the best juniors in the world meet!
 
HIROMU TAKAHASHI vs. MARK HASKINS
 
In November 2013 at RevPro New Territory, Mark Haskins, already a two-time British Cruiserweight Champion, took on a young man looking to find himself, a former New Japan Young Lion sent around the globe to perfect his craft and to be the best professional wrestler he could be. Hiromu Takahashi would challenge the best RevPro had to offer but ultimately came up short before finding himself in CMLL.
 
Four years later and Haskins is still at the top of his game while Takahashi has firmly cemented himself as one of the very best on the planet. Takahashi since then has captured the CMLL World Lightweight Championship and the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Championship and joined Los Inobernables de Japon. Known as the “Ticking Time Bomb”, Takahashi returns to the UK four years more experienced with all the confidence in the world. But can he beat Haskins? Find out in Edinburgh!
