Since Ring of Honor and New Japan officially started mixing rosters in 2014, ROH wrestlers have a losing record on domestic ROH shows.

The count is ROH’s record is 35-52 overall since 2014. In 2016, the record is 18-30.

Most of the match-ups have been upper-tier New Japan stars against mid-card ROH wrestlers, creating situations where the New Japan stars are expected to go over.
