First off, congratulations to Jay & Mark Briscoe on retaining the titles against Steve Corino & Jimmy Jacobs at National Pro Wrestling Day Saturday afternoon and ROH officials are aware of the challenge Jay made to Kevin Steen following the match and will address it down the line.
Second, while it was technically revealed in a video released last week
After this weekend's episode of "Ring of Honor Wrestling" TV it can OFFICIALLY be stated that on March 2nd at the "11th Anniversary Event", Fish & O'Reilly will challenge Jay & Mark Briscoe for the World Tag Titles!!!
On the episode available here to Ringside Members, Bobby Fish & Kyle O'Reilly earned a tag title opportunity with their Gauntlet Match victory over The American Wolves AFTER Eddie & Davey had already defeated both The Bravados & S.C.U.M in back-to-back battles. While The Wolves did defeat two teams back-to-back, they unfortunately fell victim to a post-match beating from Jacobs & Corino that saw Davey get blasted with a roll of quarters and Eddie fall victim to a Cutter from Jimmy.
Still, The Wolves persevered through the beating and nearly captured a victory in their third straight match but due to a combination of the beating and the freshness of their young opponents, Fish & O'Reilly captured the victory and earned their title shot!
"This is what Kyle and I became a team for." said Bobby Fish to ROHWrestling.com in Baltimore, "We earned our shot by beating one of the most lauded tag teams in ROH history; a team that can claim to be former Tag Champions, they are both former World Champions, Eddie is a former TV Champion, Survival of the Fittest winner, and the first Triple Crown champ in ROH history...and we beat them straight up. Whatever happened before we got in the ring is neither here nor there, all that matters is what happened when that last bell rang. Kyle and I will be your next tag team champions and we will do it by beating THE definitive tag team in Ring of Honor at the 11th Anniversary. This isn't bragging, this isn't tough talk, this is the reality of ROH's future."
