Two more matches have been announced by ROH Matchmaker Nigel McGuinness for THE SUMMER HEAT TOUR in Philadelphia, PA on August 9th. The first match is due to the results of the ROH World Tag Team Championship match at THE SUMMER HEAT TOUR in Cincinnati, OH. Because Alex Kozlov suffered an injury in Japan, ROH Matchmaker Nigel McGuinness came out at the beginning of the show to announce that Rocky Romero would get a one night replacement for a tag team partner. It was announced that "The Sicilian Psychopath" Tommaso Ciampa would fill in and be the partner of The Forever Hooligan Rocky Romero.
Romero quickly learned that he couldn't trust the Psychopath. After reDRagon defeated the team of Ciampa and Romero, Ciampa got into a shoving war with his one night partner. Security was brought to the scene as Ciampa and Romero got into a post match physical brawl. Because of this altercation the two will square off in a grudge match on August 9th in Philadelphia.
Also in Cincinnati, The Briscoes and WAR MACHINE faced each other for the first time. The match was indecisive as the team of Adam Cole and Jay Lethal hit the ring to attack both teams. This way probably the result of Jay Briscoe interrupting the new Iconic Champion Maria Kanellis just minutes before their match. Jay Briscoe still wants his "Real World Championship" back. A title that was taken by Adam Cole, then given to Matt Hardy, then renamed as the Iconic Title, and now has been given to Maria Kanellis. It's likely that Maria sent her "Kingdom" protege Adam Cole to the ring to attack Jay Briscoe for his actions and interruption.
Because of their involvement, the match was thrown out. Nigel McGuinness and the ROH fan base are still very intrigued to see who the true victors would be in a match up between The Briscoes and WAR MACHINE. Since we didn't get a decisive winner in Cincinnati, the rematch has been signed for August 9th in Philadelphia.
WAR MACHINE consists of the two finalists in the 2014 Top Prospect Tournament, Hanson and Raymond Rowe. The two men have yet to be pinned in Ring of Honor action since coming together as a team. They even hold a count out victory over ROH World Tag Team Champions reDRagon. Will WAR MACHINE be able to stay undefeated against "The Baddest Tag Team on the Planet" and the greatest tag team in ROH history The Briscoe Brothers?
