First Time Ever Tag Team Match Set For Rahway!

The Briscoes collide with Edwards & Cole...

A slew of details about Ring of Honor's debut in Rahway, NJ on October 6th came out yesterday including the announcement that both the ROH World & Tag Team Titles would be defended at the event. In addition, it was also promised that we would be announcing the first official match for our return to NJ today and here it is...

 

For the first time ever, the 7-Time former ROH World Tag Team Champions Jay & Mark Briscoe will go up against the combined might of “Die Hard” Eddie Edwards & the ROH World TV Champion Adam Cole! The Briscoes are no strangers to Edwards with Eddie having spent a great deal of time engaged with them during The American Wolves run as a pair, but it is only the second time Cole has faced off with Dem Boys (the first being at “Honor Takes Center Stage Ch. 1”).

 

In addition, while Edwards & Cole have proven themselves a capable duo in the past (most notably at the “10th Anniversary Event”), this is the first time the two men have teamed up in many months while Jay & Mark spend virtually every ROH event competing as a tag team, not to mention their years of experience in the field. Despite those fact, Eddie Edwards remains unphased heading into this tag team challenge...

 

“I know Jay and Mark well.” said Edwards to ROHWrestling.com, “It's that kind of knowledge you only get when you've gone to war either against somebody or at their side. I have stood toe-to-toe with the Briscoes as we all gave everything we had for the right to either be called, or remain, champions and I have seen them as friends traveling the road together. I have seen every side of Dem Boys, I have seen the same of Adam Cole, and that is why I can go into Rahway with the utmost confidence that Adam and I...we will be walking out with our hands raised in victory. It will be a sweet feeling to come home from NOAH and head straight into that fight. And I'm kind of hoping Jay and Mark make it even sweeter by actually winning the tag team titles in Chicago Ridge. Becoming a champion again, now that would be a sweet homecoming.”

 

As noted yesterday in the Newswire, Eddie will be spending September in Pro Wrestling NOAH competing alongside Bobby Fish as part of the GHC Jr. Heavyweight Tag League before returning to ROH in October.  Also as Eddie mentioned it there, and it is a situation ROH officials will address should it arise, there is certainly the potential for Jay & Mark to roll into New Jersey as the new ROH World Tag Team Champions depending on how the Tag Team Title Tournament that starts this weekend on “Ring of Honor Wrestling” TV unfolds over the next few weeks. A Tag Team Title match has been promised to Rahway after all and you could be looking at said match right here!

 

It's Jay & Mark Briscoe vs. Eddie Edwards & Adam Cole in a 1st Time Ever Tag Team Encounter and it goes down on October 6th! There's a potential tag title situation brewing in this one when we make our debut at the Rahway Recreation Center in Rahway, NJ!
