AEW’s first trip outside of the United States has had plenty of news coming out of both Dynamite and Rampage. Rampage ended the debut of The Kingdom as Matt Taven, Mike Bennett, and Maria Kanellis made their debut for AEW.
The Kingdom Makes AEW Debut
— AEW on TV (@AEWonTV) October 15, 2022
Their debut came following the main event that saw FTR and Shawn Spears defeat The Embassy (Brian Cage and Gates of Agony). FTR and Spears were attacked by The Kingdom but the beatdown didn’t last long. Backup came in the form of Samoa Joe and Wardlow who helped even up the odds.
Taven, Bennett, and Kanellis all spent time in Ring of Honor prior to the company’s purchase by Tony Khan. Following Final Battle in 2021 when the status of ROH was in flux the trio made their way to IMPACT Wrestling as part of the Honor No More stable. During their time in IMPACT Taven and Bennett won the IMPACT tag titles once. They are still the title holders as of the latest television episode. Taven and Bennett and scheduled to defend the titles against Heath and Rhino next Thursday on IMPACT on AXS TV.
Taven and Bennett are also two-time Ring of Honor Tag Team Champions. Those titles are currently held by FTR, and their is no doubt The Kingdom has their eyes set on those titles.
