As announced earlier this week the Ring of Honor World Tag Team Titles were stripped from ANX and the vacancy will be filled via an 8-Team tournament to be held over a series of upcoming ROH events beginning on August 3rd at The Du Burns Arena in Baltimore as part of the next round of “Ring of Honor Wrestling” TV Tapings. The first two teams have been announced and they are the 7-Time former World Tag Champions Jay & Mark Briscoe and The Young Bucks of Matt & Nick Jackson. Well now ROH officials have reached an agreement with some outside competitors to join the field and they are one man who is familiar to long-time ROH fans and another who has never seen action in our ring:
Representing BLK OUT: Ruckus & Jeez!
Ruckus saw plenty of ROH action several years ago as a member of The Vulture Squad with Jack Evans, Jigsaw, & Julius Smokes, challenged for the ROH World Tag Titles on several occasions, and even challenged then-World Champion Nigel McGuinness for the title. Jeez, on the other hand, has never stepped foot into Ring of Honor but has been competing around the world for years against top competition. As a duo, these two men have also been decorated Tag Team Champions elsewhere so it will be interesting to see how they stack up in one of the most competitive tag team divisions in all of pro wrestling.
The first round kicks off on August 3rd in Baltimore and your tickets are waiting for you right here! Make sure you keep checking back with ROHWrestling.com as the other 5 teams in the tournament are set...
