The Young Bucks now defend their ROH Tag Team Titles against The Kingdom at Gateway to Gold

The stars of Ring of Honor return to Collinsville, IL, just across the river from St. Louis, MO, when Gateway to Gold comes to the Gateway Center on Sunday June 4! All of your favorite ROH stars will be there with championships on the line and a number of first-time ROH bouts!

The Main Event for Gateway to Gold has been signed and the ROH World Championship will be on the line. Prior to 15th Anniversary, “Almighty” Christopher Daniels was 0-8-1 in ROH World Championship bouts. In Collinsville, Daniels has a chance to make his record in championship bouts 8-8-1 in his seventh defense!

Announced as a ROH Update Exclusive, Ian Riccaboni announced that the Young Bucks would be defending the ROH World Tag Team Championships against OI4K. Due to an injury to Dave Crist, OI4K will not be competing against the Young Bucks. Jake Crist has been added to the Gateway to Gold Gauntlet for an opportunity to compete for the ROH World Championship and the ROH Board of Directors have signed a ROH World Tag Team match with the Young Bucks and one of ROH’s top tag teams!

ROH WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP

ROH WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS THE YOUNG BUCKS (MATT & NICK JACKSON) vs. THE KINGDOM (MATT TAVEN & VINNY MARSEGLIA)

The Young Bucks are on top of the world right now, ROH World Tag Team Champions for the third time. As champions, they have made an open challenge to all teams past, present, and future. In Collinsville, the Young Bucks will defend against a team that may have found their number: The Kingdom!

It was during All Star Extravaganza Weekend that The Kingdom reformed in Matt Taven’s image made their debut. Taven brought INKSANITY Vinny Marseglia and “The Sassy Wild Horse” TK O’Ryan with him and in their debut match they defeated the then-ROH World Champion Adam Cole and then-ROH World Tag Team Champions The Young Bucks in the first round of the ROH World Six Man Tag Team Title tournament!

A question that has been on the minds of many has been: did The Kingdom use the element of surprise to defeat three of the best in the world or were they the perfect trio? It has been on the mind of the Young Bucks, whose win/loss record and championship history shows that they are tough to beat!

The Young Bucks have been preparing for OI4K but now will once again face The Kingdom on short notice. Taven has been one of the few ROH stars to have Bullet Club’s number, having defeated then-Bullet Club member and former three-time ROH World Champion Adam Cole at Masters of the Craft in addition to their six-man win. Can Taven become a two-time ROH World Tag Team Champion with Marseglia as a first-time champion? Or will the Bucks break out the favors and decorations and lead a Superkick Party in Collinsville? 

There is nothing like seeing the stars of Ring of Honor LIVE! Be there for the hard-hitting, fast-paced, in-your-face action that only ROH can provide! The previous six ROH events have had turn-away sellouts so DO NOT wait – get your tickets now and see the Best Wrestling on the Planet, live!
