reDRagon (Bobby Fish & Kyle O'Reilly) captured the World Tag Titles at the “11th Anniversary Event” by dethroning multi-time champions, and ROH founding fathers, Jay & Mark Briscoe. It was a shock to the world but, even if they were actually surprised by their victory, Fish & O'Reilly don't show it...
“Bobby and I have heard the word upset too many times to count.” said Kyle to ROHWrestling.com, “This was not an upset, that would imply we were underdogs heading into Chicago. How can you be an underdog when we had to beat one of the teams the ROH history books have deemed the best just to get a title shot? That same team had just LOST to the Briscoes a few weeks before too remember? Calling us underdogs going into Chicago, that was a slap in the face to all our hard work and training. Calling me and Bobby anything other than deserving champions would be spitting in the face of our success. We beat The Wolves, we beat The Briscoes, we will beat The Wolves again and again and The Briscoes again and again until Ring of Honor and the fans realize that it's everyone else who are the underdogs to reDRagon.”
Whether they were underdogs or not is now irrelevant because reDRagon must now be called champions, but a pair of true underdogs will be getting the opportunity of a lifetime against the champs on March 30th!
As he did at “The Hunt for Gold” with Tadarius Thomas' World Title Match, Nigel McGuinness is bringing the Underdog Challenge to Asheville! That night Alabama Attitude (Mike Posey & Corey Hollis) will get a chance to make their dreams come true as they challenge for the World Tag Team Titles!
“Posey and Hollis have been an impressive pair.” said McGuinness, “In their previous ROH appearances they have certainly stepped up their game each and every match, and held their own against reDRagon on TV earlier this year. This is Mike and Corey's chance to shock the world, just like Tadarius Thomas nearly did in Dearborn against Kevin Steen. All it takes is one win to erase the word underdog mates, and replace it with the word champion.”
Bobby Fish & Kyle O'Reilly defend the World Tag Team Titles for the first time on March 30th against Alabama Attitude of Mike Posey & Corey Hollis! It's an Underdog Challenge in Asheville and you can be there live to see if AA can shock the world!
