Global Wars was a professional wrestling event held since 2012 by the American Ring of Honor (ROH) promotion. Originally named Border Wars, the event was renamed Global Wars in 2014 after ROH announced a partnership with the Japanese New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW) promotion. Under the new name, the event became a supershow co-produced by the two promotions. From 2012 to 2016, the event was held in May, but in 2017, Global Wars was moved to October and made a four-event tour across Buffalo, New York; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Columbus, Ohio; and Villa Park, Illinois. The 2019 were co-promoted between CMLL and ROH
