Ring of Honor Wrestling has officially announced that ROH World Champion Dalton Castle will be defending his title at Honor United: London on May 26th against current New Japan Pro Wrestling IWGP World Tag Team Champion EVIL, a member of Los Ingobernables de Japón.
EVIL is also a former NJPW NEVER Openweight Champion, as well as a three-time NEVER Openweight Six-Man Tag Team Champion along with Tetsuya BUSHI and Seiya SANADA.
It was previously reported that Castle has been dealing with various nagging injuries, particularly back problems. No word yet on whether ROH officials are talking about having Castle drop the ROH World Championship any time soon. Castle has been the champion since he defeated Cody Rhodes for it at Final Battle back in December.
