Saturday, Aug. 27th – MCU Park – Brooklyn, NY 6pm

Ring of Honor continues the rich history of pro wrestling events at ballparks when it brings FIELD OF HONOR ‘16 to MCU Park in Brooklyn for the third year in a row on Aug. 27th.

Fans can expect a lineup of power hitters and plenty of strikes and slams when the best wrestlers on the planet compete under the stars.

ROH Matchmaker Nigel McGuinness has just signed a huge main event for the show:

ROH WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP – FOUR CORNER SURVIVAL
ADAM COLE vs JAY LETHAL vs TETSUYA NAITO vs HIROSHI TANAHASHI

With four highly decorated athletes such as Adam Cole, ROH World Champion Jay Lethal, Tetsuya Naito and Hiroshi Tanahashi in the ring at the same time with the title at stake, this undoubtedly is one of the biggest matches in ROH history.

The presence of the two New Japan Pro-Wrestling stars adds huge international implications to the match, as former IWGP Heavyweight Champions Naito and Tanahashi will each be vying to become just the second Japanese wrestler to win the ROH World Title (Takeshi Morishima held the championship for eight months in 2007).

This match will also mark another chapter in the fierce, highly personal rivalry between Lethal and Bullet Club’s Cole that has been raging for more than two months. Either man could enter this match as the defending ROH World Champion, as Lethal will put the title on the line against Cole eight days prior at the Death Before Dishonor XIV Pay Per View.

Cole escalated the conflict when he and The Young Bucks attacked Lethal and proceeded to humiliate him by cutting off his signature braids and shaving his head at a recent national TV taping.

ROH matchmaker Nigel McGuinness had earlier proclaimed that Cole would never receive another world title shot as long as he is in charge, but Lethal and the fans convinced McGuinness to reverse his decision at Aftershock in Philadelphia on July 16th.

Winning major championships and competing on the big stage are nothing new for Tanahashi and Naito.

Tanahashi has won the IWGP Heavyweight Championship a record seven times and headlined NJPW’s annual Wrestle Kingdom show in the Tokyo Dome a record eight times, winning six of the main events he has competed in at the major show.

Naito won the IWGP Heavyweight Championship from Kazuchika Okada this past April and went on to hold it for two months before losing it back to Okada.

The leader of the villainous Los Ingobernables de Japon has proven time and again that he is as devious as he is talented, so he will likely to stoop to any depths in the Four Corner Survival Match to put gold back around his waist.

Regardless of who leaves Brooklyn with the championship, this figures to be a match that fans will be talking about for years to come.
