The ROH Six-Man Tag Team Champions will be in action on ROH's next PPV, but not in a six-man tag match, and not for the titles.
The duo of TK O'Ryan and Viny Marseglia from Kingdom won't be defending their titles at ROH 17th Anniversary as their Kingdom leader Matt Taven is set for a title match of his own. They will, however, be taking on the Lifeblood tandem of "Hot Sauce" Tracy Williams and Mark Haskins in their ROH PPV debut.
ROH's official website posted the following:
Las Vegas is known for big fights and bright lights, so what better city for The Best Wrestling on the Planet to celebrate its birthday in? On March 15 at Sam’s Town Live in Sin City, Ring of Honor presents its 17th Anniversary show live on pay-per-view and for HonorClub VIP.
The show takes place three weeks before the historic G1 Supercard at sold-out Madison Square Garden, so what happens at 17th Anniversary in Vegas will not stay in Vegas; the ramifications will surely be felt at The World’s Most Famous Arena in New York City on April 6.
Members from two of the top factions in ROH will meet at 17th Anniversary when The Kingdom’s Vinny Marseglia and TK O’Ryan, two-thirds of the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Champions, face LifeBlood’s Mark Haskins and Tracy Williams in tag team action.
THE KINGDOM’S VINNY MARSEGLIA AND TK O’RYAN vs. LIFEBLOOD’S MARK HASKINS AND TRACY WILLIAMS
LifeBlood’s mission statement is to restore honor to Ring of Honor, and the faction has wasted no time in backing up its words. On this week’s episode of “Ring of Honor Wrestling,” The Kingdom’s Matt Taven, Marseglia and O’Ryan were beating down ROH World Champion Jay Lethal until LifeBlood -- Juice Robinson, Bandido, David Finlay, Haskins and Williams -- took it upon themselves to come out and run them off.
The Kingdom beat such a hasty retreat that they left behind Marseglia’s ax, O’Ryan’s bat and self-proclaimed “real ROH World Champion” Taven’s faux title belt. LifeBlood’s Tenille Dashwood grabbed a microphone and said that as long as Taven’s belt exists it’s a slap in the face to all of them and it’s time for it to be destroyed.
Lethal proceeded to use O’Ryan’s bat and Marseglia’s ax to obliterate the belt. As he did so, LifeBlood stood guard around the ring so that The Kingdom could not attempt to stop him.
Now Marseglia and O’Ryan are seeking retribution for Taven against LifeBlood, while Haskins and Williams are looking to make an example of two men they believe have no honor.
ROH 17th Anniversary takes place on March 15 from Sam's Town Live in Las Vegas Nevada, and can be ordered on PPV and ROH Honorclub VIP. Fightful will have full, live coverage of the show.
