The Gentlemen's Club Will Deign King of Trios With Its Presence

The Gentlemen's Club is in, fellas

Squad number 10 for this year's King of Trios tournament represents another Challenge of the Immortals outfit. The Gentlemen's Club, headed up by possible future retiree Chuck Taylor, will send a delegation to the annual most-populated tournament in pro wrestling. Joining Taylor will be the indomitable mat technician Drew Gulak and earth elemental Swamp Monster. The odd man out in this quartet will be Orange Cassidy, but my guess is he'll need time to sleep it off like he did during last year's landmark comedy atomico between the Club and the Submission Squad.

The Club will probably not be a threat to win. It's not the kind of team built to make a long run into the tournament like Taylor's old group, Team FIST. FIST won the whole thing in '09, defeating Bryan Danielson, Claudio Castagnoli, and Squire Dave Taylor in the final. That tournament seems like two lifetimes ago. While Taylor's new trio probably won't win, they will be entertaining. They join the Bullet Club, Team Lucha Underground, Team Fight Club Pro, Team Attack!, the Blue World Order, Devastation Corporation, Dasher's Dugout, and the United Nations.
