Ring of Honor Wrestling is one of the top three professional wrestling companies in North America, behind only the WWE and alongside Impact Wrestling.

The company is touring the United States right now and has two big shows coming up in Texas — one in San Antonio on June 15 and a second in Dallas on June 16. Ring of Honor also has a special treat for their fans as former WWE and Impact Wrestling superstar Shane “Hurricane” Helms will make his Ring of Honor debut on those two shows.

However, while Hurricane Helms wrestling in Ring of Honor is fun, there are a lot more reasons to hit these shows than just to see the former WWE superstar.

For the San Antonio event, Ring of Honor will put on a show at The Aztec Theatre on June 15. The event will include Meet & Greets with ROH stars two hours before the event starts where fans can pay a flat sum to get a posed photo and signed 8×10 or personal item.

Wrestlers included in this are some of the biggest in Ring of Honor, including The Young Bucks, Cody Rhodes, Marty Scurll, Tenille Dashwood (Emma from the WWE), Hurricane Helms, The Boys and CMLL star Atlantis.

Hurricane Helms first match for Ring of Honor Wrestling will be a six-man tag team match in San Antonio. Helms will team up with Cheeseburger and Delirious to battle Punishment Martinez, Shane Taylor and WWE Hall of Fame superstar Bully Ray.

Outside of Hurricane Helms, the San Antonio event will see Jay Lethal battle T.K. O’Ryan, The Kingdom vs. The Boys, Cody Rhodes vs. Jonathan Gresham, a Women of Honor tag match, and Socal Uncensored vs. Team CMLL.

The main event in San Antiono will see The Bullet Club (Marty Scurll, Adam Page, Young Bucks) take on The Briscoes and Killer Elite Squad (Lance Archer and Davey Boy Smith Jr.).

The Dallas show on June 16 will take place at the legendary Gilley’s. The autograph sessions are the same as they were in San Antonio. Matches include The Young Bucks vs. The Boys, Marty Scurll will compete in a triple threat match against Flip Gordon and Jay Lethal, Cody Rhodes will battle Shane Taylor, and Team CMLL will battle The Kingdom. The Briscoes will also defend their tag titles against the Killer Elite Squad.

Hurricane Helms will be involved in tag team action in Dallas, teaming with Delirious to battle The Addiction — Christopher Daniels and Kaz.

The main event will be a huge six-man mayhem match with a lot at stake. Ring of Honor World TV champion Silas Young will compete in a match that also includes Jonathan Gresham, Punishment Martinez, Adam Page, Cheeseburger and Scorpio Sky. If one of those men pin Young, they get an instant TV title match. If Young pins one of the others, they can’t get a title shot for the next year.

Tickets for both events are on sale at ROH Wrestling’s official website.

Fans can watch Ring of Honor Wrestling every Wednesday night on their local Sinclair Network. They can also sign up for an Honor Club membership at the official ROH site to see all the television shows and catch up on past pay-per-view and special events as well.
