New ROH World Six-Man Champs Crowned In Atlanta

**The following will air on a future episode of “Ring of Honor Wrestling” **

It was quite a homecoming for Cody in more ways than one when ROH held its latest set of international television tapings at Center Stage in Atlanta on July 21.

Not only was the Marietta, Ga., native wrestling in his home state and in a building in which his famous father, “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes performed, but Cody also was once again fighting side by side with his Bullet Club brethren, The Young Bucks (Matt and Nick Jackson), and the trio wasted no time winning gold together.

Cody and The Young Bucks defeated The Kingdom (Matt Taven, TK O’Ryan and Vinny Marseglia) to become ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Champions.

Cody, whose relationship with The Young Bucks had become strained due to his rivalry with Bullet Club leader Kenny Omega, buried the hatchet with Matt, Nick and Omega after the Cody vs. Omega match at New Japan Pro-Wrestling’s G1 Special in San Francisco July 7.

Cody and The Young Bucks’ victory ended The Kingdom’s second reign as ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Champions, which had begun on May 9 when Taven, O’Ryan and Marseglia defeated SoCal Uncensored (Christopher Daniels, Frankie Kazarian and Scorpio Sky) during the War of the Worlds Tour in Lowell, Mass.

Not surprisingly, The Kingdom is not taking the loss well. All three members of The Kingdom immediately went to Twitter to again accuse ROH of conspiring against them and giving Bullet Club preferential treatment.

This is Cody’s second championship in ROH and the first since he lost the ROH World Title in December. The Young Bucks previously held the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Titles with Adam Page, and that trio’s 201-day reign (Aug. 20, 2017 to March 9, 2018) remains the longest for the six-man titles. The Young Bucks also are the current IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Champions and NEVER Openweight 6-Man Tag Team Champions (with Marty Scurll).
