If you love tag team wrestling, then Ring of Honor is the place to be for the summer of 2014!
The current ROH tag scene is getting hotter and hotter! Reigning champions reDRagon continue to back up their claim that they are the most cohesive, dominant team on the planet. They travel to New Japan Pro Wrestling in August to test themselves there. But back home, challengers are lining up fast!
Because there are currently so many teams with a legitimate argument they should be considered for title matches, Nigel McGuinness has decided to throw four of the top teams in ROH into one match! On July 19th in Dearborn, you'll see a 4 Team Survival Match with a future ROH World Tag Team Title opportunity at stake.
In one corner, "The Fallen Angel" Christopher Daniels and his partner Frankie Kazarian will fight for another shot at reDRagon. After debuting as a team in ROH at BEST IN THE WORLD, Daniels and Kazarian came up short against Bobby Fish and Kyle O'Reilly. But they definitely established that they are ready to compete against all the top teams in Ring of Honor - and that they're always ready for another shot at the titles.
It cannot be argued that The Decade are the backbone of ROH and constantly named among the top athletes in the company. While Jimmy Jacobs and BJ Whitmer might argue that their legacy as former ROH tag team champions entitles them to automatic title shots, it won't be quite that easy. The Decade is the second team in this Four Team Survival challenge and will have the opportunity to EARN a future title shot in Dearborn!
Who can stop WAR MACHINE? The three other teams in this match are certainly going to have their work cut out for them if they want to keep Hanson and Rowe out of the tag title picture. Two of the most physically intimidating athletes in pro wrestling today, Hanson and Rowe banded together and have recently aligned themselves with the new ROH World Champion, "Unbreakable" Michael Elgin. They've scuffled with reDRAgon in the past, but many are speculating that their new found focus will be what leads War Machine to success - and championship gold.
Finally, you can't discuss the ROH Tag Team picture without #DemBoys! Jay and Mark Briscoe have been tag champions in Ring of Honor a record setting EIGHT TIMES and are always looking to add another reign to their list of accomplishments. The Briscoes have the experience edge as a team over everyone else in this match - and most teams in pro wrestling. In fact, Jay and Mark say they've been teaming for life and and that's a bond no one can defeat.
Four teams...but only one winner! No doubt reDRagon will have their eyes on this match as well. It's a battle for a tag title shot and it's going down on the ROH SUMMER HEAT TOUR!
