ROH WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP: TOMMASO CIAMPA VS. ADAM COLE (c)
In the fall tournament for to crown a new ROH World Champion, Tommaso Ciampa and Adam Cole battled in the semi-finals. Cole came out on top and went on to win the title. Now "The Sicilian Psychopath" has another shot at Cole - and the title is on the line!
 
The advertised main event for BEST IN THE WORLD assumes Adam Cole will retain his title in Collinsville. But Tommaso Ciampa is tired of assumptions and tired of being overlooked. On June 7th, he's out to take Cole's title, shake up the PPV, and show why maybe it's Tommaso Ciampa who is really the best in the world.
 
ROH TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP: MARK BRISCOE & JAY BRISCOE VS. KYLE O'REILLY & BOBBY FISH (c)
Kyle O'Reilly and Bobby Fish are ROH World Tag Team Champions for the third time after defeating The Young Bucks at WAR OF THE WORLDS. But reDRagon's very first title reign came after besting legendary Briscoe Brothers in March of last year. Now in Collinsville, Jay and Mark have the chance to recapture gold! A victory would make the Briscoes NINE time champions - a record no other team has come close to beating. Bobby Fish and Kyle O'Reilly claim they ARE tag team wrestling - the best of the best. On June 7th , the best tag team wrestling the planet will be on the ROAD TO BEST IN THE WORLD!
 
PROVING GROUND: THE ROMANTIC TOUCH VS. JAY LETHAL W/ TRUTH MARTINI (c)
Since securing the World TV Title joining The House of Truth, Jay Lethal has been a changed man - the same elite athlete, but with a whole different attitude. And many have said there's something familiar yet different about his mysterious opponent, The Romantic Touch. Now The Romantic Touch has the chance to prove he deserves an ROH TV title shot on THE ROAD TO BEST IN THE WORLD...if he can beat or outlast Jay Lethal!
 
MICHAEL BENNETT W/ MARIA VS. "UNBREAKABLE" MICHAEL ELGIN
"Unbreakable" Michael Elgin's last stop before his title match at BEST IN THE WORLD will be against the increasingly aggressive Michael Bennett! These two men broke into ROH at nearly the same time. Their careers may not have crossed all that often so far, but on June 7th they collide! Elgin knows he needs to go into BEST IN THE WORLD with a victory.  But Maria Kanellis never goes into a match without a plan...
 
ACH VS. SILAS YOUNG
The "Last Real Man In Professional Wrestling" always wants a fight. In Collinsville, he takes on one of the most exciting athletes in ROH - ACH!. Silas has been antagonizing Kevin Steen, so there's no doubt he'll be in a particularly foul mood come June 7th. ACH, on the other hand, is always flying high and ready to show how much heart he has.  This is a huge clash of styles you don't want to miss!
 
BJ WHITMER W/ TADARIUS THOMAS VS. CAPRICE COLEMAN
Recently, BJ Whitmer and his cohorts in The Decade have been gunning for Cedric Alexander. They feel Cedric is a disrespectful young punk who needs to learn the lesson their "young boys" like Adam Page and Tadarius Thomas have accepted. At BEST IN THE WORLD, Cedric Alexander gets another crack at Roderick Strong in a Submissions Match. But first, his former tag team partner has the chance to gain his own measure of revenge on Cedric's behalf against BJ Whitmer! But besides revenge, this match is a huge one for Caprice no matter what. Whitmer is one of the longest tenured members of the ROH roster - a fact he has never hesitated to point out.  This could be a monumental victory for Caprice Coleman and the night he proves he has what it takes to be a singles star in ROH!
 
There will also be a Pre Show Autograph signing with THE BRISCOES & CEDRIC ALEXANDER!
