Jay Briscoe is no stranger to controversy. Whether with his brother Mark or on his own, Jay has been hard hitting and outspoken in Ring of Honor since day one. After an injury forced him to vacate the ROH World Title it took him over a decade to win, Jay Briscoe lashed out physically and verbally against anyone who he felt was responsible. Controversially, Briscoe returned to ROH carrying what he is proud to call the Real World Title - the championship he says he never lost.
Current ROH World Champion Adam Cole has courted controversy himself since winning the tournament to fill the vacant championship.  Once known for his positive attitude and honor, Adam Cole hardened into a darker man who enlisted the aid of Matt Hardy to guide his career.  But whether or not you approve of the new Adam Cole, he's still the ROH World Champion - and he's proven he belongs at the top of the mountain.  According to Adam Cole, he's going to restore the prestige and acclaim of the Ring of Honor title and wipe away the stain left by Jay Briscoe.  
Jay Briscoe has been a fighting "real" World Champion, defending his claim to the title at ROH events across the country. But in the eyes of a few - including Adam Cole - Briscoe's title means less than nothing.  Jay Briscoe challenged Cole to fight him for the Real World Title when ROH returns to San Antonio on February 8th for "State of the Art." Now we have Cole's response: 
On February 8th, it's ROH World Champion Adam Cole vs. "Real World Champion" Jay Briscoe! Every interaction between these two men has been intense, but this might become the most brutal encounter yet.  This is about pride and personal honor.   Don't miss it! Tickets for "State of the Art" are available right HERE.
