Ring of Honor issued the following press release announcing a new tag match for the September 6th Global Wars Espectacular event from Deaborn Michigan. The Kingdom (ROH champion Matt Taven & Vinny Marseglia) will battle CMLL’s Triton and Volador Jr. one night before Taven defends the title against Volador Jr. in Chicago. Details are below.
The night before Matt Taven defends his ROH World Championship against Volador Jr., the two rivals will be on opposite sides in a tag match at Global Wars Espectacular in Dearborn, Mich., on Sept. 6. Taven will team with fellow Kingdom member Vinny Marseglia against Volador Jr. and fellow CMLL star Triton.
Taven and Volador Jr. have a storied history as both friends and foes in CMLL in Mexico, but this will be the first time they have been inside an ROH ring together. Volador Jr. is the last man to pin Taven in a singles match, doing so on Aug. 3, 2018, when he defeated Taven to regain the NWA World Historic Welterweight Title.
Taven and Volador Jr. teamed together to face RUSH and Barbaro Cavernario in a Hair vs. Hair Match in the main event of CMLL’s 85th Anniversary show last September, but Taven attacked Volador Jr. after they lost the match (and their hair).
In Dearborn, Taven will have the loyal and sadistic Marseglia on his side, while Volador Jr. will be joined by the talented Triton, who will be making his ROH debut. This match will determine whether it’s Taven or Volador Jr. who goes into their title match the next night in Chicago with momentum.
Join us live in Dearborn or streaming for HonorClub to see this exciting matchup and all the top stars from ROH and CMLL compete on Global Wars Espectacular!
