Mark Briscoe is the 16th Entrant to the ROH World Title Tournament
Earlier today we announced that the 15th entrant into the World Title Tournament would be determined by your votes on our official Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/ringofhonor) page. We also said that Nigel McGuinness had secured the last entry in the field and he has now confirmed that 16th, and final, name with ROHWrestling.com...
Mark has been out of action since the June 23rd TV Tapings in Baltimore when he was viciously assaulted by S.C.U.M after already having to bow out of Steel Cage Warfare due to injuries suffered during his "Best in the World 2013" World Title bout against brother Jay the previous night.
While Jay Briscoe is still slated to be out of action for the next 3-6 months due to the severe shoulder injury that forced McGuinness to strip him of the World Title, Mark has informed ROH officials that he expects to be cleared by the doctors from his recent concussion come July 26th!
With that in consideration, Nigel McGuinness has named Mark Briscoe as the last entry into the field with his first round match-up taking place on July 27th in Providence!
That's not all though; McGuinness has also informed of us of the first official Opening Round match-up for the tournament and it will be Mark Briscoe versus Adam Cole! In addition, we have also learned that the winner of that bout will move on to "All Star Extravaganza V" in Toronto for their second round match-up!
With one man left to be named tomorrow based on your Facebook votes, you can expect the other first round match-ups to also be set in the coming days. The road to the title begins in Providence and leads us straight back home to Philadelphia in September...tickets for all of the events are available right here (http://www.rohwrestling.com/catalog/tickets) in the ROH Store!
This is the summer of honor!
