Ring of Honor issued the following:
Could a thirst for gold be spreading the ROH World Champion too thin?
Truth Martini is a man of opportunity and knows that reDRagon, fresh off a tour with New Japan Pro Wrestling, will have an opportunity to dethrone the ROH World Tag Team champions, The Kingdom, in Milwaukee to become four-time ROH World Tag Team champions. Knowing that reDRagon are clicking on all-cylinders, Martini has become a gold prospector of sorts and has signed his team of Donovan Dijak and ROH World Champion Jay Lethal to a tag team encounter with reDRagon in what could be an ROH World Tag Team Championship match in Hopkins!
Martini has become a gambler, playing his hand from position of strength with every reason to believe he is on top of the world. Martini’s charges, Dijak, the 2015 Top Prospect, and Lethal, the reigning ROH World Champion and the longest-reigning ROH World Television champion, ever, have Martini filled with confidence. But will hubris be the House of Truth’s downfall?
Both Bobby Fish and Kyle O’Reilly came within milliseconds of taking singles gold from the waist of Lethal at All Star Extravaganza VII. In fact, had it not been for outside interference from Adam Cole, it is very likely O’Reilly would be the ROH World Champion. Fish and O’Reilly will return to the states with both men fixated on recapturing ROH Tag Team gold and resuming their hunt for singles’ championships. Could Truth’s overconfidence be putting Lethal in danger prior to his World Championship encounter at Final Battle against A.J. Styles?
In Hopkins, Martini will have to rely heavily on the 6’8” Dijak. Martini is betting on the development of the agile, hulking brute as an able-bodied tag team partner to the “Greatest First Generation Wrestler” that can not only protect Lethal but also serve as, potentially, one-half of the ROH World Tag Team champions. With Dijak proving himself as a breakout star in encounters with Moose and Michael Elgin, he looks to prove Martini doubters wrong in Hopkins.
But the question remains: what if Martini’s speculation doesn’t pan out? What if the Kingdom find a way to retain in Milwaukee and he instead subjects the HoT to a suddenly fire-breathing reDRagon with memories of their losses to Lethal in San Antonio burnt in their minds? You’ll have to be in Hopkins to find out!
