This event will be seen across the US and Canada live on Pay-per-View starting at&nbsp;9pm ET&nbsp;/&nbsp;6pm&nbsp;Pacific.</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Helvetica Neue Light'; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Helvetica Neue Light';">BEST IN THE WORLD returns to New York for the first time since 2012 for Battle of the Belts!&nbsp; ROH World Champion Jay Briscoe and ROH World Television Champion Jay Lethal FINALLY go head-to-head after months of Lethal claiming he is the only champion who matters in all of professional wrestling.&nbsp; But that's just ONE match in a full lineup comprised of the absolute best in the world...</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Helvetica Neue Light'; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Helvetica Neue Light';"><strong>THE DECADE (BJ Whitmer &amp; Adam Page) vs. ACH &amp; MATT SYDAL</strong></div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Helvetica Neue Light'; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Helvetica Neue Light';">In just a short time together as a team, ACH and Matt Sydal have already solidified themselves as one of the most exciting duos in all of professional wrestling.&nbsp; They came together for the first time at TAG WARS 2014 and nearly defeated reDRagon in the finals to win the titles on their very first try. Their similarly exciting, high energy styles complement each other and they have tag team gold on their minds.</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Helvetica Neue Light'; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Helvetica Neue Light';">But before ACH &amp; Matt Sydal can fully focus on championship goals, they have more personal issues to contend with.&nbsp; Recently ACH has found himself targeted by The Decade, specifically the increasingly aggressive Adam Page. Many have speculated that Page is envious of ACH's success.&nbsp; Meanwhile, Page and BJ Whitmer claim that ACH has done nothing but waste opportunities he didn't realize deserve in the first place.</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Helvetica Neue Light'; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Helvetica Neue Light';">The Decade was built around a philosophy that success must be earned through hard work and respect.&nbsp; But Whitmer and Page have twisted that idea into a campaign of aggression and bullying. Page has whole heartedly embraced his "mentor" BJ Whitmer's attitude and earned a "young boy" of his own in Colby Corino.&nbsp; But even as Page finds his own success - whatever the method - he can't seem to shake his issues with ACH.</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Helvetica Neue Light'; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Helvetica Neue Light';">Now at BEST IN THE WORLD, The Decade squares off against ACH &amp; Matt Sydal! The hostilities between these teams are only getting more and more heated.&nbsp; They both obviously want to be contenders in the tag title scene.&nbsp; But right now their personal issues are squarely at the forefront...and they will boil over on&nbsp;June 19th&nbsp;LIVE on pay-per-view!</div><div style="font-size: 13px;

He has signed to face ROH World Champion Jay Briscoe at Best in The World ’15: Battle of the Belts. You would believe that he would do everything in his power to ensure that he is healthy for that and not risk injury in something like this. Yet he has signed on to prove that he is “The Greatest First Generation Wrestler” once again. Mark Briscoe has never held singles gold in Ring of Honor. It has eluded him and he understands that a win here puts him in line for a title opportunity. Silas Young has just returned off a major injury and has made waves by nearly defeating Jay Briscoe his first night back! Will Ferrara made the finals of the 2015 ROH Top Prospect Tournament. He fought men much larger than him was and proved to have the heart of 10 men. Is it Lethal's pure talent?&nbsp; Is it the reckless anything goes style of Briscoe, the rough style of Silas or the heart and determination of Ferrara that will make the difference in chase of the victory?</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Calibri;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Calibri;"><b>NON TITLE</b></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Calibri;"><b>ROH World Champion JAY BRISCOE vs. CAPRICE COLEMAN</b></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Calibri;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Calibri;">Caprice Coleman will be stepping into the biggest match of his career in Amarillo.

Jay Briscoe, who has not been pinned or submitted in over 2 years, has the proverbial target on his back.

They also revealed themselves, along with Chris Sabin, to be the voices behind the Knights of The Rising Dawn propaganda. They have the tag team division of ROH on edge, fearing that an attack could come at any time. That mental edge makes them very dangerous. They will face off against a team that for the most part are mentally unshakable. Sydal and Delirious actually broke into professional wrestling in the St. Louis area nearly 15 years ago. Some say Sydal is the only man who can understand the dialect in which Delirious speaks. Could that be the key to greatness for these two? This homecoming could be very special for this dynamic duo! Could Sydal &amp; Delirious avoid mind games and defeat the champions or will The Addiction be able to handle the unpredictable duo?</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Helvetica Neue'; min-height: 15px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Helvetica Neue';">NON-TITLE: ROH WORLD TELEVISION CHAMPION JAY LETHAL w/ TRUTH MARTINI VS RAYMOND ROWE</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Helvetica Neue'; min-height: 15px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Helvetica Neue';">Jay Lethal needs to be ready for Best in The World '15 as he has the biggest match of his career coming up against Jay Briscoe, when both put their respective championships on the line. Facing off against Raymond Rowe could definitely put Lethal's well being in jeopardy. Rowe is an intense, hard hitting monster capable of ending conflict with impact at anytime. Truth Martini may have made a bad choice in signing the contract for this one. Rowe is one half of War Machine and that could mean the tag team mindset is prevalent. Lethal is one of the best singles wrestlers in the world right now and has everything to lose!

Most recently as part of The Kingdom with Michael Bennett, he has gained tag team stardom. The&nbsp; duo are the current IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Champions. Hanson, as part of War Machine, has been climbing the tag team ranks in Ring of Honor. He is no stranger to singles action as he proved by winning the 2014 Top Prospect Tournament.

Bennett is currently one half of the IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Champions along with Matt Taven. The duo have faced and defeated a who’s who of tag teams in ROH and Japan recently. Maria Kanellis will have her husband ready! The devious mastermind will have her hands full when developing a game plan for the unique Castle. Dalton is unlike anyone in Ring of Honor. The flash, the style, the double tough in ring style are all part of his brilliance. Can Castle defeat the red-hot Bennett?

BJ Whitmer is showing that his faith in Page’s future being bright was dead on. Page is a gifted athlete that has developed a mean streak a mile wide and this makes Whitmer very happy. Mark Briscoe is coming into Collinsville needing eyes in the back of his head, not just for Whitmer, but for The House of Truth. The H.O.T. are on a mission to rid ROH of both Briscoes and this spells trouble. If Mark is not careful, he could lose and lose bad here.

This sent shockwaves through the Bullet Club as Cole was said to be still recovering a major shoulder injury suffered at Final Battle ’14. Cole came into battle with Styles and proved that even with 5 months off, he was still one of the very best in the world. Styles claimed victory that night but the message was clear: The Kingdom is back and ready to take over the wrestling world.</span></div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Helvetica Neue Light'; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Helvetica Neue Light';"><span style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif;">War of the Worlds Night 2 saw The Kingdom face off with The Bullet Club in 6 man action!

They immediately went to ROH Matchmaker Nigel McGuinness and requested a rematch which has now been signed for Best in the World ’15.</span></div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Helvetica Neue Light'; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Helvetica Neue Light';"><span style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif;">The Kingdom is not only claiming territory in ROH, they have also started to claim territory on The Bullet Club's home turf of New Japan Pro Wrestling.
