Backstage News On A New Tag Team Signing With AEW/ROH

ROH’s Supercard Of Honor Event last April 1st was a stacked card from top to bottom and it even saw a number of huge moments such as Jonathan Gresham becoming the Undisputed ROH World Champion, FTR (Cash Wheeler and Dax Harwood) beating The Briscoes (Mark and Jay Briscoe) to become the ROH World Tag Team Champions, The Young Bucks (Matt Jackson and Nick Jackson) and Samoa Joe make an appearance and Tully Blanchard introduce three of his new clients who competed in two separate matchups and win both their matches.

One of the matches saw Toa Liona and Kaun make their debut as The Gates of Agony and beat the team of Cheeseburger and Eli Isom in quick fashion. Later in the show, Brian Cage was introduced as the third member of Tully Blanchard Enterprises and he beat Ninja Mack in quick and impressive fashion as well. It seems that Tully Blanchard will be managing The Gates of Agony (Kaun and Toa Liona) and Brian Cage in ROH and in AEW as well at certain times.

Toa Liona recently appeared on the Koffin Radio podcast, where he noted he has signed a deal with AEW but he is also a part of the ROH roster and is contracted, so he could show up anytime on Dynamite on TBS or Rampage on TNT. According to Fightful Select, Kaun has also signed with AEW and is technically under contract to AEW, but that he is also a part of the ROH roster and can show up anytime on either show.

Prior to Tony Khan purchasing ROH, Kaun was already a part of the ROH roster as a member of the Shane Taylor Promotions stable and they have held the ROH World 6-Man Tag Team Titles on one occasion for a title reign of about 10 months before losing them at Final Battle to Vincent, Bateman and Dutch. Kaun has already competed for All Elite Wrestling on three separate occasions, the first is a Singles loss to Andrade El Idolo on the December 20, 2021 episode of Dark: Elevation, the second is a Singles loss to Frankie Kazarian on the December 28, 2021 episode of Dark and the third appearance is a one-on-one loss to Adam Cole on the January 18, 2022 episode of Dark.

Toa Liona, on the other hand, made his ROH debut at Supercard Of Honor, but he has also worked in AEW before during episodes of Dark and Dark: Elevation. There’s no word yet on when we could possibly see Tully Blanchard Enterprises compete in AEW or when we could see them challenge for either the AEW Tag Team Titles or the ROH Tag Team Titles, but updates will be provided once it has been made available.
