ROH World Champion Matt Taven will be in the ring with two men gunning for his title (if he is still champion) when he and Vincent take on RUSH and Jeff Cobb in a tag match at Global Wars Espectacular in Milwaukee on Sept. 8.
RUSH and Cobb have been nearly unbeatable in singles competition since entering ROH. RUSH has never been pinned or forced to submit, while Cobb has only suffered one pinfall loss -- to Taven at the Best in the World pay-per-view in June.
While RUSH and Cobb are a dream team on paper, the reality is that they’re not friends and it remains to be seen if they can function as a team. Taven -- who will defend his title against Volador Jr. the night before in Chicago -- is a marked man, but at least he has a partner he can count on in fellow Kingdom member Vincent.
RUSH confronted Taven at Summer Supercard on Aug. 9 and made it clear that he wants a shot at the ROH World Title, but Taven told RUSH he’ll never be world champion and then walked away from him.
During the Champions vs. All-Stars elimination eight-man tag match in Atlanta two weeks later, Taven sent a message to RUSH by beating him down with a chair. Taven was disqualified for his actions, and RUSH and Cobb went on to be the sole survivors. Cobb extended his hand to RUSH after the match, but RUSH kicked it away and bumped Cobb with his shoulder as he exited the ring.
The next night in Nashville, Tenn., Cobb earned a future ROH World Title shot by winning Defy or Deny. Taven also was disqualified in that bout, this time for hitting Cobb with the title belt. Also in Nashville, RUSH scored a hard-fought victory over Vincent.
Who will prevail in this star-studded tag match. Join us live in Milwaukee or streaming for HonorClub to see this exciting matchup and all the top stars from ROH and CMLL compete on Global Wars Espectacular!
