It has been debated between ROH officials in many a heated meeting over the past several weeks, angry words and demands have been thrown out over Twitter and Facebook from the men involved in the situation, and all have been calling for some resolution to the same situation: Ladder War III.
Jay and Mark Briscoe want it, just look at a pair of Jay's tweets over the last few days: @jaybriscoe84 "ROH officials…grow some ***** balls and make it official! #LadderWar" and "ANX were the dumbasses that pulled the ladder out of the truck… Give us what we want ROH #LadderWar #MakeItHappen".
The sentiment from Rhett Titus & Kenny King has essentially been the same: @rhetttituxanx "wondering how this @ringofhonor meeting is going regarding #LADDERWAR … why the hell wasnt I invited???" or @kennykingpinanx "Man **** these briscoes, ima spare everythang but these briscoes, take a ladder out the damn truck and crush these briscoes #ladderwar"
The consensus of the two teams involved in this contest is obvious; give them Ladder War, but ROH officials, based on the previous Ladder Wars, and particularly the last one the Briscoes were involved in at "Man Up", have been extremely hesitant to ever allow that match stipulation to come into play again.
But things finally came to a head this morning and a decision was made…
"We have spent the better part of the last month butting heads over this decision." stated ROH Executive Producer Jim Cornette, "The Ladder War is dangerous to everyone involved and presents a liability that Ring of Honor has not wanted to take on, especially in light of our debut on broadcast TV in a few weeks. That being said, we have come to a conclusion that this issue between The Briscoe and The All Night Express is not going to be settled any other way. These four men have essentially told ROH officials they will not stop the violence until the Ladder War is set for New York, and quite frankly, I am sick and tired of having to pull them apart at every turn. So, on September 17th at 'Death Before Dishonor IX', live on iPPV, it will be Jay and Mark Briscoe versus Rhett Titus and Kenny King…in Ladder War 3! A contract for a title shot at 'Glory by Honor X' will hang above the ring, I just hope these four guys live to regret their choices…"
