Ring Of Honor announced last night that IWGP United States Champion Kenny Omega will be competing on their upcoming ROH: Supercard of Honor XII event on April 7, 2018. This is ROH’s biggest PPV of the year and this PPV is scheduled to happen in the same town that WrestleMania is scheduled to take place which is in New Orleans. This PPV is scheduled to take place a day before WrestleMania.
Below is the official announcement from ROHWrestling.com:
BREAKING: Kenny Omega Will Compete at Supercard of Honor XII
The IWGP United States Champion “The Cleaner” Kenny Omega stood victorious following his win in the main event of Global Wars: Chicago, which was the capstone of a history-making tour, selling out in four cities, four nights in a row. As previously announced, Kenny will continue competing in ROH rings on November 11 in Ft. Lauderdale, FL and November 12 in Lakeland, FL – and tickets are moving fast for those events. Do not miss your chance to get great seats to these shows!
Breaking now, it is with great excitement that, in addition to competing at Ring of Honor’s upcoming events in Florida, “The Cleaner” has been signed to compete at Supercard of Honor XII on Saturday, April 7, 2018 in New Orleans! Omega joins current IWGP Intercontinental Champion Hiroshi Tanahashi as the first two names confirmed for the event!
Omega assumed the role of Bullet Club leader in early 2016 and has propelled himself to become one of the best and most popular professional wrestlers on the planet. This is Omega’s first time in the Big Easy with ROH!

This April, ROH looks to supersede 2017’s event in every way possible as we travel to the Big Easy to present the stars of ROH and NJPW. This will be a bigger and better Supercard of Honor as we deliver the absolute Best Wrestling on the Planet that ROH fans have come to expect.
