ROHWorld Weekend Roundup (8/3/12)

Final Teams Announced For Tag Title Tournament

The final two teams for the ROH World Tag Team Title tournament have been announced. The first of the teams includes Rhett Titus and a mystery partner. Titus was robbed of the chance to enjoy a successful reign with the belts after partner Kenny King left ROH and the titles were subsequently vacated. It is not known who will be partnering Titus as of yet.

The other team announced also involves a surprise partner as Charlie Haas will be teaming up with a yet unknown ally. With Shelton Benjamin ‘suspended’ (he’s actually competing in Japan), it looked as if Wrestling’s Greatest Tag Team would not be represented. However, a two-time ROH World Tag Team champion, Haas demanded to be involved in the tournament and he was subsequently added to the lineup. Much like Titus, we do not yet know who will be partnering Haas.

The first round of the tournament kick off tonight, Friday August 3 in Baltimore at the latest TV tapings and the full list of teams is as follows:

  1. The Briscoes
  2. The Young Bucks
  3. The BLK Out
  4. The Guardians of Truth
  5. Caprice Coleman & Cedric Alexander
  6. The Bravados
  7. Rhett Titus & ???
  8. Charlie Haas & ???
