ROH News: The Young Bucks regain ROH Tag Team Championships from the Hardy Boys

The Young Bucks once again reign supreme as the ROH tag team champions

What’s the story?

Over the past week, Florida has become the epicentre of some amazing wrestling shows put up by several promotions. The wrestling extravaganza will culminate in Wrestlemania, however, several independent promotions such as WCPW and ROH are also capitalising on the hype that has taken over the wrestling world.

Ring of Honor (ROH) scheduled their iPPV Supercard of Honor XI in Lakeland on Saturday Night. There were several highs for the pay per view, but the biggest talking point of the night was the Young Bucks capturing the Ring of Honor Tag Team Championships.

In case you didn’t know...

The Hardys were involved in a legal tussle with Impact Wrestling over the ownership of the ‘Broken’ gimmick. The gimmick went on to be the biggest talking points of 2016 and shot up Matt Hardy to main event status.

Now that the Hardys have severed ties with Impact Wrestling, the gimmick became a bone of contention between the two parties. However, a patent released by the US Patent Department stated that the gimmick was the creation of the Hardy brothers and was rightfully their intellectual property.

The heart of the matter

There has been a lot of speculation over the past few weeks regarding the Hardys. The rumours surrounding the Hardy brothers is that they may be on their way back to the WWE. The speculation further added to the build-up of the match, making it arguably the biggest tag team match of the weekend.

The match headlined the pay-per-view and stole the show as many fans and observers had predicted.

The Young Buck, who have built a reputation for themselves with their ‘Superkicks’, left it all on the line against one of the hottest tag teams in wrestling. The ladder match was filled with high spots that swayed the match to-and-fro.

The Young Buck finally reigned supreme when they superkicked the Hardy boys from the top of the ladder and sent them crashing to the mat. Matt and Nick then captured the ROH Tag Team titles amidst jubilant celebrations by the fans.

What’s next?

This match has led to fans believing that the Hardys may indeed be heading for the WWE. After the match, the Hardys put over the Young Bucks as the greatest tag team that they ever faced and claimed that the future of tag team wrestling is in good hands. This message seemed to be a farewell to the independent scene from the Hardy boys.

Author's take

There has not been any confirmation on the side of either the WWE or the Hardys about a possible contract negotiation. WWE likes to keep their fans in the dark about big signings to later surprise them at a pay per view or on their flagship shows.

With WrestleMania Monday being a renowned stage for returns and comebacks, the WWE Universe may be greeted with the nostalgia of the Hardy boys once again, this time with their new gimmick.
