Ring of Honor (ROH) tag team The Bouncers have admitted they are aiming to prove themselves as a legitimate threat. The team, comprised of The Beer City Bruiser and Brian Milonas, spoke with Wrestlezone ahead of ROH’s pay-per-view, Death Before Dishonor about their ambitions. They also discussed the current ROH landscape.
“We firmly believe we are one of the best tag teams on the face of the planet and we’re serious contenders for the ROH World Tag Team Titles,” Milonas said. “We’re out to show the world, to prove a point not only to Silas and Vincent, but to prove a point to the world at Sam’s Town.”
Addressing the current landscape in ROH, Milonas explained how there is currently plenty of opportunities for talent to shine. He believes that it is currently an exciting time for pro wrestling and ROH. Milonas added that he doesn’t give much thought to fans who are discussing the end of ROH.
“When you talk of a company like Ring Of Honor and in this company’s history—how many times has the death certificate been written by the internet wrestling community out there? But, it’s exciting cause for guys like us and for so many others it presents opportunity,” Milonas said.
He continued, “And what a better time. You can’t ask for a better time to be a pro wrestler in 2019 right now. It’s a question we get asked a lot, especially since the guys from The Elite left and went and started AEW which is a great thing as well, but it’s one of those things that I know and I can comfortably speak for The Bruiser too on this is that we looked around and Jay Lethal is still there. We looked in the other direction and The Briscoe Brothers are still there, and man, that’s the heart and soul of that locker room and that company. As long as those guys are there, to me all is right in the world.”
Beer City Bruiser agreed, adding that the ROH locker room is an amazing environment to be a part of: “Everyone gets along. There’s no egos. It’s a truly fun locker room to be a part of. The best thing about our locker room, everyone else here wants to prove all the critics wrong. Everyone wants to sign off Ring Of Honor, everyone wants to say that we’re dead, that we’re going downhill and this whole locker room wants to prove that it is not the case.”
ROH’s next pay-per-view, Death Before Dishonor, airs tonight. The show takes place from Sam’s Town Hotel and Gambling Hall in Las Vegas, Nevada.
