Jonathan Gresham and Jay White face off with War Machine at Queen City Excellence

The Best Wrestling on the Planet returns to The Cabarrus Arena in Concord, NC for an international TV taping featuring the hard-hitting, fast-paced, in-your-face action that only Ring of Honor can provide! All of your favorite ROH stars will be in action on Saturday, July 29 with a 7 PM EST bell time!

The fallout of Best in the World has sent shockwaves throughout the ROH locker room. In Concord, the IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Champions take on two of ROH’s brightest up-and-coming stars!

NON-TITLE

IWGP HEAVYWEIGHT TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS WAR MACHINE (HANSON & ROWE) VS. JONATHAN GRESHAM & JAY WHITE

“Warbeard” Hanson and Ray Rowe were none too pleased at Best in the World. For weeks following the War of the Worlds tour, their challenge to the ROH World Tag Team Champions The Young Bucks remained unanswered. Then, Matt and Nick Jackson said yes to the rubber match and the titles were set to be defended at Best in the World.

And then, everything changed. The Young Bucks added to their war chest of gold at New Japan Dominion, winning the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Championships. A steel chair cost War Machine the IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Championships. And before the match at Best in the World could even begin, Best Friends entered themselves into Hanson and Rowe’s championship opportunity. At the end of the night, War Machine left Lowell without the ROH World Tag Team titles and didn’t even figure into the decision.

War Machine, perhaps caught in a web of their own frustration, would drop a critical bout to the Motor City Machine Guns after Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin isolated Ray Rowe when it looked like Hanson was hurt on the outside. But a rematch against the Guerillas of Destiny proved to be just what War Machine needed. At G1 Special in the USA, War Machine got revenge and got back on track, capturing the IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Championships for the second time.

Now, their sights are set on their second ROH World Tag Team Championships.

Their first ROH bout since regaining the IWGP Tag Team titles is against a team that has teamed just one time before in 2-on-2 action! But they are two of best young, up-and-coming stars ROH has seen in quite some time. 

Jay White, on a major roll in singles competition with wins over Punishment Martinez and valiant efforts against the World and World Television Champions, teams with “The Octopus” Jonathan Gresham to take on War Machine in Concord! The two members of Search and Destroy will look to make up for a size and experience disadvantage with speed, agility, and explosiveness! At Best in the World, Gresham earned the deciding submission and he, White, and the Machine Guns defeated and disbanded The Rebellion. But can they defeat larger, more experienced, and undoubtedly angrier, opponents again, this time in 2-on-2 action? Join us in Concord to find out!

There is nothing like seeing the hard-hitting, fast-paced, in-your-face action of ROH LIVE! The Best Wrestling on the Planet has become one of the hottest tickets in town – don’t miss your opportunity to see ALL of the stars of ROH, LIVE!
