The rivalry between The American Wolves and reDRagon has been raging in one form or another since Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards reunited at “Final Battle 2012” to defeat Kyle O'Reilly & Bobby Fish. Since that December night, the two teams have met on several occasions but the most notable were certainly in New York City when, first at “Supercard of Honor VII”, reDRagon defeated The Wolves to successfully retain the World Tag Team Titles and then during the “Ring of Honor Wrestling” TV Tapings, Fish defeated Edwards while O'Reilly lost to Richards. Kyle's loss also saw him suffer a serious arm injury that forced the tag team champions to miss the “Border Wars 2013” weekend in Toronto.
As Eddie & Davey have rebounded from their tag title loss (their 2nd of 2013) with victories over RD Evans & QT Marshall, S.C.U.M, and Adrenaline RUSH so to have Fish & O'Reilly continued their winning ways with a tag title victory over The Briscoes, singles victories in San Antonio, and a successful title defense at “Best in the World 2013” over both S.C.U.M and C&C Wrestle Factory. Still, with the history Eddie & Davey have with Kyle & Bobby the threat of The Wolves is always looming over reDRagon's shoulder...
“We beat Eddie and Davey to earn our title shot.” said Kyle to ROHWrestling.com, “We then beat them at Supercard when the eyes of the entire wrestling world were on New York City. Bobby beat Eddie straight-up and Davey may have beat me, but he had to maliciously injure me, put me on the shelf for a month, in order to do it. We have dominated the tag team division here while the two of you have lost in both of your title chances this year. If you ask me, The American Wolves do not deserve another title shot until they prove themselves deserving.”
Based on Kyle's thoughts there he will likely be relieved to find out he & Bobby Fish will NOT have to defend the World Tag Team Titles against The Wolves when Ring of Honor returns to Milwaukee on July 12th. Just because they don't have to defend the belts against the Wolves though does not mean that reDRagon will not have to deal with Davey and Eddie that night.
In fact, the World Tag Team Champions will have to stand on their own because that Friday night it will be Kyle O'Reilly versus Eddie Edwards while Bobby Fish goes one-on-one with Davey Richards for the very first time! Can Kyle do something he has never done and beat Eddie? Will Fish make it 2-for-2 by defeating Richards? Or will The Wolves dominate the night and prove they deserve another shot at tag team glory? Be there live in Milwaukee on July 12th to see for yourself first-hand! Tickets are on-sale right now in the ROH Store!
