The Tag Gauntlet Is Getting... Insectoid

The King of Trios night three tag gauntlet is great for its unpredictability. Not every team is announced beforehand, so surprise teams coming in provide great crowd exciters. But sometimes, a team is announced beforehand that is so odd that it feeds into said unpredictability. The team of Bee Boy and the Genetic Grasshopper falls into that category. The team of insectoid wrestlers, hailing from Australia, will make the trek to Easton to compete in the tag gauntlet, along with the returning 3.0. I have no idea what to make of this team, because I've never seen them before. However, the names and the gimmicks are so out there that I can't help but love them upon arrival.

In addition to the tag gauntlet and the final matches in both the King of Trios and Rey de Voladores tournaments, Heidi Lovelace will defend her Young Lions Cup on night three. This defense will be only her second; she defeated Argus at Shock and Aww on June 14. Her opponent has not been named yet, but it's good to see the Cup defended live at Trios. King of Trios weekend begins tomorrow. I can't believe it's almost here, but it'll definitely be an awesome time. If you can head up for all three nights, then you're lucky. But even if you can only head up for one show, you're going to be in for a treat
