ROH News: Main Event For Best In The World Official, Full Card For Columbus Event, More
Source: ROH Wrestling- On ROH Wrestling TV this week, Mark Briscoe came out to confront his brother Jay about his new attitude since winning the ROH World Title. Jay Briscoe then went on to tell Nigel McGuinness that he wanted a match against his brother at the Best In The World iPPV. ROH Match Maker said that he would consider the match and now he has made his decision.
Nigel McGuinness has decided to indeed make that the main event at Best In The World. Furthermore, if Briscoe is able to successful defend against Davey Richards in San Antonio and Eddie Edwards in Columbus, then his title will be on the line against Mark at Best In The World.
McGuinness had this to say to ROHWrestling.com: "Jay and Mark gave me something to think about. I look at 'Best in the World' and I see an event that should showcase why Ring of Honor is the best wrestling on the planet. Two years ago it did just that with Davey and Eddie's epic scrap and last year, even though it was Kevin Steen as champion, he and Davey demonstrated why our World Title is the most important one there is with how hard they fought. So this year, well what better way to celebrate honor than with a good old fashioned family feud between two of our founding fathers? Any time we've seen Jay and Mark go at it there's no holding back and that is just what I want to see at 'Best in the World'! Mark Briscoe versus Jay Briscoe will happen on June 22nd and if Jay makes it past both Davey and Eddie as champion in the next few weeks, then the World Title WILL be on the line!"
