SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
Ring of Honor is going with the same main event at this year’s “Best in the World” PPV event as last year.
This time, Jay Lethal will be defending the ROH World Title against Jay Briscoe. Last year, Lethal won the ROH Title from Briscoe to begin his current title reign.
ROH will be marketing their next PPV main event as Lethal trying to go one full year as ROH World champion at “Best in the World” on Friday, June 24 in North Carolina.
The announcement was made at Wednesday night’s “War of the Worlds” tour stop in Toronto. ROH then released on Thursday a preliminary hype video for Lethal vs. Briscoe.
