ROH World Tag Team Titles Are On The Line At Supercard Of Honor

The Briscoes have returned to tag team domination in 2017 after turning their backs on Bully Ray and focusing on themselves. At the behest of Jay, he and brother Mark turned their focus to the Ring of Honor World Tag Team Championships once more and unleashed a violent side not seen in years, leading them to their ninth Ring of Honor World Tag Team Championships, the first time they held the championships since 2013.

The “Since Day One” motto is not hyperbole, as Jay and Mark have been ROH tried and true since The Era of Honor Begins at the Murphy Rec Center in 2002. The pair, despite vicious and violent actions, have become iconic in the pantheon of ROH stars and are, perhaps, the greatest tag team in ROH history.

At Supercard of Honor, the brothers will face two of the biggest singles champions in the history of ROH and New Japan Pro-Wrestling, respectively! In New Orleans, we will find out if the whole is greater than the sum of its parts!

ROH WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS THE BRISCOES (JAY & MARK BRISCOE) vs. JAY LETHAL & HIROSHI TANAHASHI

Jay Lethal and Hiroshi Tanahashi have formed a mutual respect and a friendship that has crossed international waters over the last few years. The duo teamed with KUSHIDA and Michael Elgin twice in the fall of 2016 to twice defeat Los Ingobernables de Japon before teaming with Juice Robinson at Honor Rising 2017. One of the greatest ROH World Champions, ever, in Lethal and the seven-time IWGP Heavyweight Champion Tanahashi have teamed once before and did so in Dearborn as part of last year’s War of the World’s Tour! But this dream team will have to be at their very best when they take on the record-setting Briscoes!

The Briscoes defeated the Motor City Machine Guns at 16th Anniversary to break their own record with their ninth championship win. The Briscoes have shown an edge, viciousness, and a killer instinct not seen in years and it may take a team formed of two of the best singles champions from two of the most prestigious wrestling organizations in the world to stop them! Lethal and Jay Briscoe had a series of classic bouts for the ROH World Championship across 2015 and 2016 and it will be interesting to see if their rivalry is reprieved during this dream tag team clash! Who will leave New Orleans World Tag Team Champions? Join us to find out!

Supercard of Honor XII will emanate from the UNO Lakefront Arena in New Orleans, LA on Saturday April 7!
