Ring of Honor (ROH) begins to prepare one of the most important dates of the year. This afternoon, the company announced the presence of former IWGP Heavyweight champion Jay “Switchblade” White for the next edition of Supercard of Honor. The event will take place on Saturday, April 4 at the RP Funding Center in Lakeland, Florida, during the WrestleMania weekend.
According to Mike Johnson, from the specialized portal PWInsider, it seems that the leader of the Bullet Club would not travel alone to the state of Florida. The journalist says that there are still more announcements coming from the NJPW faction and that some of its members would occupy a prominent place at the top of the card. This will be White’s first appearance at an ROH show in almost a year since he lost the IWGP Heavyweight Championship against Kazuchika Okada in G1 Supercard.

The appearance of Jay White and other members of the Bullet Club could be an indicator that, despite the cancellation of the Honor Rising joint tour, the labor relationship between ROH and NJPW would be far from over and will remain a reality throughout 2020.
At the moment, no match has been confirmed for the Supercard of Honor. Even so, the company has ensured the presence of the following stars:
- PCO (current ROH world champion)
- “The Villain” Marty Scurll
- “The Mercenary” Flip Gordon
- Brody king
The Ungovernable Faction
- Dragon Lee (current ROH television world champion)
- Kenny king
- Amy Rose
- “Switchblade” Jay White
- Session Moth Martina
Ticket sales for Supercard of Honor will begin next Wednesday, January 15, starting exclusively for members of HonorClub, the ROH subscription video service. The rest of the world can buy their tickets when they go on sale from Friday, January 17. The show can also be viewed globally through the broadcast by HonorClub.
