ROH Wrestlers Headed to CMLL in Mexico

Updated: Jul 29, 2018

Ring of Honor is engaging in a talent exchange with CMLL.

The following is the press release from the about the new talent exchanges.

"ROH World Tag Team Champions Jay and Mark Briscoe, Matt Taven and Christopher Daniels will travel to Mexico next month to compete on CMLL events, CMLL announced today on its “CMLL Informa” program.

The Briscoes will appear on the Aug. 3 show at Arena Mexico, and Daniels will be on the Aug. 5 show at the same venue. Taven, CMLL’s NWA World Historic Welterweight Champion, will compete in CMLL starting with the Aug. 3 event.

Taven, who also is one-third of the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Champions with fellow Kingdom members TK O’Ryan and Vinny Marseglia, has established himself as a top star in CMLL. He won the NWA World Historic Welterweight Title from Volador Jr. at Arena Mexico on March 30.Taven also has had an ongoing rivalry with Ultimo Guerrero, the latest chapter of which saw Taven defeat the CMLL legend in a thrilling match at New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom on a recent episode of “Ring of Honor Wrestling.”

Talent exchanges such as this one are made possible by ROH’s partnerships with promotions around the world. In addition to CMLL, ROH enjoys working relationships with New Japan Pro-Wrestling, Revolution Pro Wrestling in the U.K. and Japanese women’s wrestling promotion Stardom."

This is big news to Ring of Honor as we know Impact Wrestling has a working relationship with Mexico's 2nd biggest wrestling promotion AAA Lucha Libre Worldwide.

I wonder what kind of match-up we will soon get between these two companies.

Let us know what you think about this in the comment section.
