Ring of Honor has issued the following press release announcing that the Briscoes (Mark and Jay) will be facing off against RUSH and IWGP Junior Heavyweight champion Dragon Lee (also brothers) in a tag team bout on the June 29th Best in the World event in Philadelphia. Check out the details below.
Brothers RUSH and Dragon Lee are making an extremely rare appearance as a tag team on U.S. soil, and their opponents will be one of the greatest brother teams of all time, Jay and Mark Briscoe.
The first-time-ever match-up between the two sets of siblings goes down at the Best in the World international television taping at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia on Saturday, June 29.
RUSH and Lee are both at the top of their game in singles competition. RUSH has yet to be pinned or forced to submit since signing with ROH, scoring victories over the likes of Dalton Castle, Bandido, Mark Haskins and Silas Young. Lee, RUSH’s younger brother, is the reigning IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion, having won the title in a Triple Threat Match at G1 Supercard at Madison Square Garden on April 6.
RUSH and Lee have had a lot of success together in traditional tag and trios matches in Mexico, but when it comes to tag team success, few teams in pro wrestling history can touch the Briscoes. Jay and Mark Briscoe have held the ROH World Tag Team Titles a record 10 times, and they are hot on the trail of reigning champions The Guerrillas of Destiny.
The Briscoes don’t want to get derailed by RUSH and Lee, who undoubtedly would love to have a victory over the Briscoes on their already impressive resumes.
Which of these superstar brother teams will prevail in Philadelphia? Join us live to find out!
