ROH Wrestling sent in the following today:
ROH Tag Title match announced for Toronto
Chris Hero & Claudio Castagnoli have demanded competition from Ring of Honor officials. They want to face the best tag teams ROH can find and continue to prove they are THE dominant tag team in ROH today. With six successful title defenses in this reign, including two over the Briscoes, one over Cabana & Generico, one over the Motor City Machine Guns, one over Chris Daniels & Davey Richards, and one over The All Night Express, Briscoes, & Dark City Fight Club in Ultimate Endurance, it is hard pressed to argue against them. Then again, if you ask Hero, keeping the belts through Ultimate Endurance would probably give The Kings more like eight or nine successful defenses.
Well in accordance with the wishes of The KoW, ROH officials have named the next challengers to the ROH World Tag Team Titles. In a match taking place on November 13, 2010 in Mississauga, ON, Canada it will be Kevin Steen & Steve Corino who challenge Hero & Claudio for the ROH World Tag Titles!
“It’s about time we get the opportunity we deserve.” said Kevin Steen, “Steve and I are undefeated on HDNet as a team, UNDEFEATED! Who else can claim that? We weren’t even given a chance to…to qualify in Tag Wars! Why you ask? Is it because the Kings are scared little girls? Were they afraid we would hurt them? Maybe it’s because they can see we are vicious bastards who will stop at nothing to get what we want…and right now we want your belts.”
Will Steen & Corino’s homecoming be a victorious one? Or will The Kings of Wrestling, now creeping on their 7th month as champions, continue to reign supreme over the ROH tag team division? Thoughts from both teams will hopefully be available in upcoming ROH Video Wires, and tickets are available for this huge event http://www.rohwrestling.com/store.php?sec=prod&prod=569 where all three ROH World Titles will be on the line!
