Another match has been announced for the already stacked “Revolution” weekend. The current Ring of Honor Tag Team Champions Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin will take on the impressive young team of Adam Cole and Kyle O’Reilly in a non-title match.
Haas and Benjamin have been very impressive since their debut in Ring of Honor at “Glory by Honor IX” in September of 2010. They have been a dominant force since losing their debut, although that was via underhanded tactics by the Kings of Wrestling. They defeated the Briscoes at the “9th Anniversary Show” to become number one contenders to the Kings’ belts. They finally met the Kings of Wrestling for the titles at “Honor Takes Center Stage: Chapter One” and came away victorious after a fantastic match. They did not have long to celebrate however, as they were competing the next afternoon against the American Wolves. They once again came away with the win that day as well. There is not a hotter tag team in Ring of Honor right now.
Standing across the ring from them will be the team of Cole and O’Reilly. These two terrific young athletes had the biggest tests of their careers during the “Honor Takes Center Stage” weekend. They faced off against the Briscoes the first night and they were the first to face the Kings of Wrestling after they lost the titles. They were unable to pick up a win on either event, but they showed that they are more than capable of facing off against the top teams in Ring of Honor. Their great outings have landed them the biggest match of their careers as they wrestle the Ring of Honor tag team champions. They have shown that they are able to go head-to-head with any team in Ring of Honor, and nothing less should be expected at “Revolution: USA.” A win for Cole and O’Reilly would not only further cement themselves as major players in the tag team scene, but would also set themselves up for a title shot in the future.
It is going to be a great match regardless who wins, but it seems like it is finally Cole and O’Reilly’s time to shine. Haas and Benjamin versus Cole and O’Reilly takes place at “Revolution: USA” in Dearborn, Michigan on May 6!
