For the second week in a row, the Bro Mans retained their World Tag Team titles on TNA Impact, despite losing to The Wolves via disqualification.
Eddie Edwards was on the verge of gaining the decisive pin on Robbie E, when Zema Ion jumped into the action from ringside and struck Edwards over the head with his laptop.
The referee awarded The Wolves the victory via disqualification, but once again the result allowed the Bro Mans to keep their belts.
A week earlier, the defending champions attempted to extract themselves from their scheduled title defence with a forged excuse. Having already earned a reprieve due to an injury sustained by Jesse Godderz while training, they then claimed that Robbie E’s flight had been delayed, meaning that they would be unable to compete.
Unimpressed by their arguments, MVP decreed that the Bro Mans would defend their titles later that night, regardless of whether or not Robbie E was able to make the event. He told a disgruntled Jesse that Zema Ion would instead be his tag team partner.
Twice they came close to suffering defeat: The Wolves hitting a combo dive on both Jesse and Zema while on the floor, before they hit the ‘Alarm Clock’ and covered.
As referee Brian Hebner went down to make the count, he was dragged out of the ring by Robbie E, who had sprinted down to ringside to intervene. An appalled Hebner immediately called for the bell and the end of the match, awarding The Wolves the win via disqualification.
The Bro Mans won their titles for the first time at Bound for Glory in October of last year. They were beaten by The Wolves in a TNA House Show in February, but held the belts for just seven days, with Robbie and Jesse winning back their gold in the Kaisen: Outbreak event in Japan.
The Wolves have now made three unsuccessful attempts to win back their titles, including a three-way match with the duo of Sanada and Tigre Uno.
