The match was set several weeks ago, The All Night Express (Rhett Titus & Kenny King) versus Wrestling’s Greatest Tag Team (Shelton Benjamin & Charlie Haas), but at the time there were no championship titles around the waist of either team. But that all changed at “Border Wars” when Haas & Benjamin defeated The Briscoes in a Fight Without Honor to capture the World Tag Team Titles for the second time.
As a result of that victory, combined with the fact that ANX has been waiting for a title match since defeating WGTT in a Proving Ground match last year during Charlie & Shelton’s first reign AND that ANX holds another victory over WGTT from the “10th Anniversary Event”, the decision has been made by ROH officials to make their scheduled bout for Richmond THIS Saturday a World Tag Team Championship Match!!!
“Damn right.” said a noticeably frustrated Kenny King to ROHWrestling.com, “It’s been a long time coming, this title match. From the night we earned this shot beating Haas and Benjamin, through the Young Bucks trying to take Rhett out, him coming back from surgery, putting a whooping on WGTT again in New York, then taking out the Jackson boys, it’s about damn time. This is what we’ve been waiting for, for months now, since we lost in Chicago last year, this second chance is what we’ve been waiting for. There ain’t no slipping in this one, no chance in hell we ain’t walking away with those titles finally belonging to ANX. Me and Rhett, we promised ourselves along time ago we would make this happen and I have to admit we broke that promise, hurts like hell to admit that too. So this time, this time, there’s no losing, there’s no coming up short, this time Charlie and Shelton, the All Night Express runs right over your asses and closes the book on your second title run right quick.”
Recent history, that ethereal concept of momentum, it all weighs in the favor of Rhett Titus and Kenny King. Can they finally achieve their dream and capture the ROH World Tag Team Titles this Saturday night in Richmond? Be there live to find out!!! Tickets are available right here or get them at the door!
