ROH officials stated weeks ago that the ROH World Tag Titles would be defended in Richmond, VA on July 8th when we return to the Richmond Raceway Complex. It was also stated that the challengers would not be any of the teams competing in the Elimination Four Way at “Best in the World 2011”. So after Wrestling’s Greatest Tag Team retained the belts, it removed the Briscoes, the KoW, and the ANX from possible contention. ROH officials took a look at the rest of the tag team scene, and in the spirit of promising many first time match-ups in Richmond & Charlotte, found the team that would challenge Charlie Haas & Shelton Benjamin for the belts…
…New ROH World TV Champion El Generico & Colt “Boom Boom” Cabana!
Generico & Cabana have challenged once before for the belts as a unit (“Fade to Black” in 2010) but both men, being former champions, are very familiar with the ROH World Tag Titles. They offer a challenge to WGTT unlike any they have faced during their time in ROH, and certainly different more unorthodox than any team they have defended the belts against since capturing them in April Generico & Cabana, as evidenced by WGTT’s interview Sunday night (http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/wre...sign-with-roh/
), should also be prepared for a side of Haas & Benjamin that the ROH faithful have yet to see.
“I’m excited!” said Colt Cabana, “Excited to bring those beautiful tag belts back home with me to Chicago, excited to help my buddy El Generico become ROH’s first double champion, just excited to get back in the ring in Richmond. But after watching that interview from Charlie and Shelton…oh boy, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a bit scared too. That was intense man, but we’ll be ready for fight if that’s what it takes. Me and Generico will fight you, we’ll wrestle you, we will give you everything we’ve got for those belts, for those fans in Richmond, just for the pride of being professional wrestlers.”
