As someone that has attended a War of the Worlds event, the response by fans in attendance is rabid. The fevered pitch that fans bring to an ROH show is only matched by their match quality. When this is coupled with the inclusion of NJPW talent, War of the Worlds is sure to be a hit. At the moment no announced names from either promotion have been announced. Both fan favorites and champions from both companies are likely to be a part of the tour.
