There are still two position left to fill and has learned that originally Match Maker Nigel McGuinness wanted to include BOTH Eddie Edwards and Davey Richards in the tournament given their respective championship resumes.

– Tadarius Thomas

The ROH World Tag Team Titles are the most wanted duos championships in all of professional wrestling today and Match Maker Nigel McGuinness is certainly keeping the division red hot!

It was announced in Milwaukee during the pre-show Q&A with McGuinness that on August 3rd in Toronto, as part of the “All Star Extravaganza V” event, The Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson) will make their long-awaited & highly-demanded return to the fold!

Then on Saturday in Dearborn it was announced that on July 27th in Providence The Forever Hooligans (Rocky Romero & Alex Koslov) will step into The Proving Ground with the World Tag Team Champions reDRagon (Kyle O’Reilly & Bobby Fish) in an attempt to earn a future Tag Title Match! The Hooligans were unsuccessful in their attempt back in March in Chicago but look to get back into the hunt in less than two weeks!

And speaking of the hunt, learned today that on August 3rd, as part of the aforementioned Toronto event, The American Wolves (Davey Richards & Eddie Edwards) will challenge O’Reilly & Fish for the World Tag Team Titles!

“I got my bell rung Friday night.” said Davey Richards to, “Bobby Fish certainly proved he’s got the stuff to be a top guy but I think Saturday night proved that you can’t keep me down for long. Not only was I able to bounce back from Fish’s kick, but me and Eddie were victorious over Jay & Elgin. As individuals sometimes we will fall, but as a unit, you will be hard pressed to stop The American Wolves. Kyle, Bobby, you guys stopped us once but you had to resort to pulling tights to do it. We stopped you once too but we did it straight up. Now in Toronto we will dance for a third time and this rubber match will see the crowning of new World Tag Team champions. The hunt is on boys.”

It’s reDRagon versus The American Wolves at “All Star Extravaganza V” and the tag team titles are on the line!!! In addition, has also learned that if The Forever Hooligans prove victorious in their Proving Ground match on 7/27, then on August 17th they will challenge the winner of the reDRagon/Wolves bout!

The temperature is heating up this summer and so is the Ring of Honor tag team title scene!!! Tickets for all these events can be picked up right here in the ROH Store! Don’t miss out on The Young Bucks, The Forever Hooligans, reDRagon, The Wolves, and all the other amazing teams here in ROH!
