There has been plenty of news since the ‘Best In The World 2013’ iPPV. Firstly, ROH confirmed that iPPVs are a thing of the past for the time being and we are now hearing that the Briscoe Brothers could be done with the company.
PWInsider reported that Sunday’s TV tapings were the last bookings for both men for the forseeable future. Mark didn’t actually appear on the TV tapings with ROH saying he was injured the night before in the World Title match against his brother.
Jay, the ROH World Champion, was on the TV tapings where he defended his title against Matt Hardy but it’s possible that might be his last match in ROH. Before ‘Dem Boys’ faced off at BITW, there was a whole episode of TV dedicated to the pair called the life and times of the Briscoes which may suggest ROH knew about this in advance.
After speaking to a source about the situation, we have been told that the Briscoes are on their way to the WWE along with another possible current Ring of Honor talent. The Briscoes were famously told they weren’t ‘cosmetically pleasing’ but that seems to have been overlooked at last.
Losing the Briscoes would be a big blow for ROH, they have been a mainstay almost since day one and have given everything to the company. But all good things must come to an end and it’s about time the brothers from Sandy Fork, Delaware, made some serious cash because they most certainly deserve it.
