The Kings of Wrestling (Chris Hero & Claudio Castagnoli) vs. The All Night Express (Kenny King & Rhett Titus) from Ring of Honor 2011


Anniversary Show
Chicago Ridge, Illinois
February 26, 2011

This was for the Kings’ ROH World Tag Team Championship.

Originally reviewed here.

ANX had the early advantage. KK hip-tossing Titus for an assisted plancha got a pop out of me. The Kings fought back quickly enough and cut off Rhett. Titus eventually escaped, and King made a hot that suggests he should be the hot tag in a tag team before anything else in wrestling. The Kings fought back, and the teams went back and forth. Kenny busted out a shooting star press, and Hero had to save Claudio. King intercepted Hagadorn’s attempt to toss Hero the loaded elbow pad. Claudio and King then seemingly botched the UFO. It was really awkward. Hero hit King with the loaded elbow anyway: 1…2…3

Wow, time has not been overly kind to this one. I remember this one over-delivering at the time, but it came across very flat the majority of the match this time. King busted out some cool stuff, but this was very disappointing to re-watch.

Match Rating: **3/4
