On the heels of a landscape changing weekend in Baltimore, Ring of Honor heads out for a Triple Shot weekend starting in Chicago on July 11th, then heading to Milwaukee on July 12th, and wrapping up on July 13th in Dearborn! Yesterday it was announced that The American Wolves would go into singles action against reDRagon in Milwaukee and today ROHWrestling.com has learned that Davey Richards & Eddie Edwards will be in tag team action in Dearborn!
Their opponents that night in the Great Lakes State? The unusual pairing of “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin and Jay Lethal!
“Elgin and Lethal showed some great promise as a team back in Toronto.” said Nigel McGuinness to ROHWrestling.com, “And in light of recent events with Jay and Mark Briscoe, we wanted to make sure that the great fans in Michigan get to see the absolute best wrestlers in the absolute best matches and what better way than by doing what Ring of Honor does better than anyone else...tag team wrestling!”
The Wolves, former tag team champions, are no doubt one of the elite teams in all of tag team wrestling while Elgin (the current #1 contender) and Lethal can both lay claim to the same in the field of singles competition. There is history between all four men: Elgin has gone to war with both Davey and Eddie individually as well as in tag team battles while Lethal and Richards engaged in some classic battles in 2012 but Jay has yet to clash with Eddie inside the ROH ring.
The tag team advantage obviously lies in the Wolves camp but with two men as talented as Jay Lethal & Michael Elgin, if they stay on the same page then they will no doubt make The Wolves fight every single step of the way. Dearborn! July 13th! The American Wolves versus Jay Lethal & Michael Elgin!
Four of the best will show just why ROH is the home for best professional wrestling on the planet! Tickets are on-sale now!
