It’s hard to believe it, but Ring of Honor has now been running weekly TV for 500 episodes. Even though the pandemic shut down, they kept putting together episodes that showcased some epic matches, but since they’ve gotten back to new content? They’ve had a case for being the best weekly wrestling program. So for a milestone episode like #500? You need a huge main event. Why not have two men who have been on the roster since day one clash in that match. Even better, make it two brothers in Mark & Jay Briscoe.
Mark Briscoe & Jay Briscoe Clash In Their Fourth Ever Singles Meeting
While The Briscoes are eleven time ROH World Tag Team Champions, they’re also accomplished in singles action. Jay Briscoe especially is a two time ROH World Champion, which is where one of the previous clashes between brothers came. They met over that belt at Best In The World 2013, as well as in 2009 on episode #43 of ROH TV. Finally, they met in the semi-finals of the Sea Of Honor tournament in 2018.
Every single time they’ve met one on one? Jay Briscoe has come out on top. This time, Mark Briscoe is as determined as ever to finally beat his brother, on a marque episode. They are gonna fight like hell, there will be violence, perhaps even some blood, but they’re gonna still be as close as ever at the end.
Also Announced, Jay Lethal vs. Jonathan Gresham For The ROH Pure Championship
While Briscoe vs. Briscoe will be a wild brawl of a match, that’s not what ROH is about according to The Foundation. They will have an equally big match on this night, as Pure Champion Jonathan Gresham puts the belt on the line against Jay Lethal. This will be their fifth singles meeting, and Lethal leads that rivalry 3-1 currently, including a win in an ironman match in 2018.
The 500th episode of ROH TV is shaping up to be something special. Both announced matches could easily be the main events on a PPV, but we’re getting them on free TV. You can expect full coverage of both matches right here on TheOvertimer as well. Who do you think can walk away with the wins? Let us know what you think in the comment section down below.
