Last weekend in Hopkins, ROH fans were supposed to see a huge 6 Man War flight between Michael Elgin & War Machine and The Kingdom. Elgin and his crew had a score to settle with Hardy, Cole, and Bennett, who had interfered in the World Title match at BEST IN THE WORLD. But the 6 Man was ruled a no contest when JAY AND MARK BRISCOE hit the scene and attacked The Kingdom themselves. Since officials could not contain the chaos, the match was officially thrown out.
The Briscoes seemed to feel they have some unfinished business with The Kingdom. And while Hanson and Rowe no doubt respect a man's right to Hopkins, the Briscoe interference cost War Machine a huge opportunity to prove they have what it takes to compete against the top athletes in ROH. Not to mention the fact that they were denied the opportunity to destroy The Kingdom as planned.
Due to the mounting tensions between these two teams, Nigel McGuinness has decided to let them have at each other as soon as possible! That's right, just days from now in Cincinnati, Hanson & Rowe step into the ring with ROH tag legends Jay & Mark Briscoe!
In addition to a chance to settle the grudge from AFTERSHOCK, this is an enormous opportunity for War Machine. The Briscoes are record holding ROH tag team champions and represent everything that ROH is about.
Meanwhile, War Machine are new on the scene in Ring of Honor and doing everything they can to prove they belong. They are two of the most physically impressive giants in recent years. They've intimidated reDRagon and received a critical stamp of approval from current ROH World Champion Michael Elgin.
But on July 18th they face their biggest challenge as a team so far. War Machine vs. The Briscoes is set for Cincinnati!
