For over a year, the team of LSG and Shaheem Ali, Coast 2 Coast, proved they were worthy competitors to compete on ROH events when they dominated Future of Honor tag team competition. These wins earned them opportunities against some of the top teams in professional wrestling like The Young Bucks, The Addiction, and Best Friends but the duo ultimately fell short in each bout. They gave themselves an ultimatum for 2018: win their next match or disband amicably.
When Coast 2 Coast was told who their next opponents would be, they were not deterred. In Shaheem Ali’s hometown of Philadelphia, the duo pulled out one of the most shocking upsets in ROH history when they defeated former ROH World and IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Champions War Machine, kicking out of Thor’s Hammer and Fallout to pick up their biggest victory to date!
They have been undefeated in 2-on-2 competition since that victory and have been turning heads as the hottest tag team in Ring of Honor! The largest team in Ring of Honor history Beer City Bruiser and Brian Milonas felt so threatened by this duo’s success that they viciously attacked LSG, injuring him before the recent Tag Team Gauntlet. In Pittsburgh, the two teams will settle their score!
COAST 2 COAST (LSG & SHAHEEM ALI) vs. BEER CITY BRUISER & BRIAN MILONAS
In Nashville, Coast 2 Coast was to face Beer City Bruiser and Brian Milonas, the largest team in Ring of Honor history. Bruiser had selected Milonas as his partner after Silas Young captured the World Television Championship and were the first opponents for Coast 2 Coast following their huge win against War Machine! That match was interrupted with Kenny King and Young interfering before the match was turned into a six-man tag.
In Pittsburgh, these two teams will meet once again but the stakes have been raised! Coast 2 Coast has remained hot but potentially hobbled: prior to the Tag Team Gauntlet on Ring of Honor Television, Bruiser and Milonas took things into their own hands after finding out that they and Coast 2 Coast drew entries one and two, injuring LSG. With LSG back to full health, not only will Coast 2 Coast look to extend their hot streak but they will seek revenge against the largest team in ROH history! Who will win this tag team clash? Join us in Pittsburgh for Steel City Excellence to find out!
