On October 5th, we return to The Du Burns Arena in Baltimore, MD for another big live event and Nigel McGuinness has provided ROHWrestling.com with the details on the first official match!
Bobby Fish & Kyle O'Reilly, collectively known as reDRagon, are in the midst of their second reign as World Tag Team champions after defeating The American Wolves at “Manhattan Mayhem V”. That victory capped off what had been several weeks of “hot potato” for the tag team titles as reDRagon began the month of July as champions. Then we saw The Forever Hooligans claim them in Providence which was then followed up by Davey Richards & Eddie Edwards capturing them at “All Star Extravaganza V” before their aforementioned defeat in NYC.
And what started this series of events you ask?
Why it was the mouths of Fish & O'Reilly as they requested the Providence bout against Rocky Romero & Alex Koslov be changed from its scheduled Proving Ground stipulations into a World Tag Team Title defense!
Now it seems we are on the cusp of history repeating itself because, on October 5th, reDRagon will not only face off with “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin & Jay Lethal in a dream tag match but now, by champions request, the bout will be for the World Tag Team Titles!
“It shocked me when Bobby Fish & Kyle asked for this.” said Nigel McGuinness to ROHWrestling.com, “I only planned this as a bit of a dream match for the fans but the champions demanded the belts be put on the line. I don't know if it's the smartest decision reDRagon has ever made. Last time they opened their mouths The Hooligans left Rhode Island with the tag titles but who am I to deny the champions what they want?”
In the main event of the evening, it will be a dream tag match pitting reDRagon (Bobby Fish & Kyle O'Reilly) against Michael Elgin & Jay Lethal and, at the request of the champions, the World Tag Team Titles WILL be on the line! Will the ROH Faithful in Baltimore see a repeat of Providence?
Be there in Baltimore on Saturday night October 5th to find out for yourself!!! Tickets are on-sale now in the ROH Store!
