Last Saturday night in Providence, as part of the “Ring of Honor Wrestling” TV Tapings, World Tag Team Champions reDRagon (Bobby Fish & Kyle O'Reilly) were set for a Proving Ground contest against the reigning IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Champions The Forever Hooligans (Rocky Romero & Alex Koslov).
Well due to circumstances of reDRagon's own making (as you will see in this weekend's edition of ROH TV), that Proving Ground match became a World Title match and ultimately led to the crowning of brand new champions in Romero & Koslov! In addition, it also shuffled up the scheduled World Tag Title Team bout for “All Star Extravaganza V” this Saturday night in Toronto where Fish & O'Reilly were set to defend their championships against rivals The American Wolves (Eddie Edwards & Davey Richards)!
Now, as a result of their victory, on Saturday The Hooligans will make their first title defense against Eddie & Davey while reDRagon, in protest, has refused to even make the trip across the border to compete at “ASE V”! Still, as the former champions, there is a rematch in their future and ROHWrestling.com has learned that Kyle & Bobby will have their opportunity to reclaim the gold very soon...
“Despite their poor attitudes...” said Match Maker Nigel McGuinness, “Despite the undeniable fact that they requested the title match that ultimately changed their fates, reDRagon is in line for a rematch against whomever leaves Toronto as champion. That title opportunity will go down on August 17th in New York City as part of the 'Manhattan Mayhem V' event and be it The Hooligans or The Wolves, you know that the two teams fighting it out over the championships will show everyone why ROH has the best tag team wrestling on the planet!”
There you have it! reDRagon, will get their rematch in New York City in just two weeks! Not only does “Manhattan Mayhem V” feature the continuation of the World Title tournament but now a World Tag Team Title match WILL take place! Tickets are on-sale right now for our return to NYC so get yours now as this summer of honor heats up!!!
