The Heart Throbs is the name of a professional wrestling tag team consisting of Antonio Thomas and Romeo Roselli, currently wrestling on the independent circuit. Thomas and Roselli are billed as being popular "with the ladies", and typically approach the ring while performing pelvic thrusts to the accompaniment of dance music. They are perhaps best known for their appearances with World Wrestling Entertainment.

Career[edit]

Thomas and Roselli wrestled in the Eastern Wrestling Alliance and in Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW) as "The Heart Throbs".

World Wrestling Entertainment[edit]

Thomas and Roselli joined World Wrestling Entertainment in 2005.[1] The Heart Throbs made their WWE debut on the April 18, 2005 episode of Raw, losing to World Tag Team Champions William Regal and Tajiri. They participated in a tag-team turmoil match for the World Tag Team Championship at Backlash 2005, but were defeated once again.

The Heart Throbs mainly appeared on the Raw B-show, Heat. They had short-lived feuds with Eugene and William Regal, Hurricane and Rosey, and Val Venis and Viscera. In 2006, The Heart Throbs gained a great deal of fan reaction and began entertaining the crowd by bringing two "hot chicks" into the ring and getting them to dance. During a WWE Unlimited webcast the Heart Throbs were sitting with the fans and they ended up being on its "Kiss Cam" segment, each kissing a girl sitting near them.

Both Thomas and Roselli were released by WWE on February 10, 2006.[2]

Independent circuit[edit]

Since their release, they have been active on the independent wrestling scene. They have spent time teaming together, as well as in solo competition, where each has a victory over the other, and two matches that were declared no contests. Together they have beaten such teams as Lenny and Lodi and Sex and Violence. They also wrestled former NWA World Tag Team Champions The Naturals.

Total Nonstop Action Wrestling[edit]

Roselli and Thomas were backstage at Final Resolution 2007, and wrestled the Riggs Brothers at the January 29, 2007 TNA television tapings. At Destination X 2007 on March 11, 2007, Roselli and Thomas, identified as "The Heartbreakers", appeared as a tag team selected by the evil Christy Hemme to face the Voodoo Kin Mafia. The Heartbreakers were defeated by the Voodoo Kin Mafia. They were released months later. They have since worked in AWA Superstars.
