Ring of Honor Suspends La Facción Ingobernable, ROH Tag Title Match Set For Week Of 5/22

ROH takes action against La Faccion Ingobernable.

Despite the fact that their name literally translates to the ungovernable faction, La Faccion Ingobernable members, including the World Champion, RUSH, have been suspended for an accumulation of “lawless actions” by the Ring of Honor Board of Directors.

From ROH:

The members of La Facción Ingobernable pride themselves on being ungovernable, but now they’ve learned that their actions do indeed have consequences.

LFI (ROH World Champion RUSH, Dragon Lee, Kenny King and Bestia del Ring) have been suspended without pay for the entire month of May by the ROH Board of Directors for an accumulation of lawless actions.

According to a person with direct knowledge of the situation, the board felt it had to take this measure because repeated fines did not deter LFI’s behavior, which included a heinous attack on former member, Amy Rose, at the 19th Anniversary show in March, and continuous disregard for the rules -- including the use of weapons -- in their matches.

The tipping point was LFI’s six-man tag match against Violence Unlimited two weeks ago. The bout degenerated into a chaotic brawl which resulted in the destruction of property and injuries to bystanders.

RUSH will address the suspension on “ROH Week By Week,” which premieres Tuesday at 1 p.m. Eastern on YouTube.

Fightful will continue to monitor the story and report all updates. RUSH recently announced the formation of his own promotion, Federacion Wrestling, which will launch this summer and feature stars from across the wrestling globe.

In addition to this news, Kevin Eck also reported that The OGK (Matt Taven and Mike Bennett) will challenge for the ROH World Tag Team Title against champions Tracy Williams and Rhett Titus of The Foundation on Ring of Honor TV the weekend of May 22.

Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp recently spoke to Mike Bennett. You can check out that interview here.
