The Hart family have been winning championships for 88 years and on Saturday night February 2nd the new era Hart Foundation will have their dance with destiny as they challenge for the World Tag Team Championship in Philadelphia. But can anyone keep up with the most celebrated World Tag Team Champions today in the Lucha Bros.?
Since being crowned the World Tag Team Champions last June, the Lucha Bros (Pentagon Jr. and Rey Fénix) have defeated every tag team in Major League Wrestling… but one: the Hart Foundation.
Equally impressive are the trio known as the Hart Foundation consisting of Teddy Hart, Davey Boy Smith Jr. and Brian Pillman Jr. Since exploding on the scene last summer, the Hart Foundation have dominated all in their path on the road to a title match.
The bout, originally scheduled for MLW’s December Never Say Never card, was postponed due to Rey Fénix suffering an injury that put him on the injured list for several weeks.
On a collision course since the fall, the media and fans alike have been buzzing about the dream match; a match which will now serve as a double main event bill for MLW’s Philadelphia MLW: SUPERFIGHT card.
The much-anticipated bout marks the first time both teams have squared off against each other in tag team competition. With the Harts representing Canada and the World Tag Team Champions fighting out of Mexico, this international encounter has captured the interest of fans around the world.
“This is a big match,” said MLW CEO Court Bauer. “Fénix and Penta have practically cleaned out the division while the Hart Foundation have not just dominated but straight up decimated everyone we’ve thrown at them. Philly is in for something special when these four throw down.”
But which two members of the Hart Foundation will wrestle in the title fight? Good question… one the unpredictable trio isn’t disclosing at the moment. Ever the fighting champions, Pentagon and Fénix are unfazed by the unpredictable nature of the Hart Foundation: they just want to prove once and for all they are the true kings of tag team wrestling in the sport.
Will the Hart Foundation bring championship gold back to Calgary, Alberta Canada or will the Lucha Bros. prove unstoppable again in 2019? Find out live Saturday night February 2nd in Philadelphia at the 2300 Arena! Buy tickets at MLWgo.com.
