Ring of Honor star A.C.H. is heading to Japan in July.
A.C.H. will be competing in Pro Wrestling NOAH’s 10th annual Jr. Hvt. Tag League tournament, teaming with Taiji Ishimori.
Also in the tournament is Texas independent wrestler Andy Dalton, who is teaming with Hitoshi Kumano.
The tournament begins July 16 in Tokyo and concludes July 30 as part of a big show at Korakuen Hall that will also include Go Shiozaki defending the GHC Hvt. Title against Takashi Sugiura.
A.C.H. noted in a recent interview that he was eager to tour in Japan, hinting that it would be ROH affiliate New Japan Pro Wrestling. However, A.C.H. is starting with NJPW affiliate NOAH.
“After my showings from a couple of weeks ago, I think some things could happen pretty soon (on working in Japan). Things are looking up for me. I’m healthy and I’m making a lot of better decisions nowadays. So, I feel like something could happen pretty soon,” A.C.H. told Brian Fritz for Sporting News.
