Tag Team Championship Match Announced For ROH Best In The World

Published

on

ROH issued the following:

Ring of Honor’s biggest event of the summer is just weeks away when BEST IN THE WORLD 2016 comes to North Carolina!  On Friday, June 24th, the stars of Ring of Honor head to the Charlotte area.  And you can watch it LIVE on pay-per-view! Charlotte is an historic, legendary hotbed for professional wrestling, and the fans in the area are some of our most supportive and enthusiastic on the entire planet.  But whether or not you can be there live in Concord, you can still catch the whole night of action on pay-per-view!

We already know that BEST IN THE WORLD will be headlined by the biggest rematch in ROH history when World Champion JAY LETHAL defends his title against his greatest rival, JAY BRISCOE.  But as massive as this World Championship battle will be, we can now confirm that ALL the ROH Championships will be on the line.  In addition to Bobby Fish’s Television Championship defense against Dalton Castle, we can now confirm who is coming to BEST IN THE WORLD to challenge for the tag team titles:

ROH WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP

THE ADDICTION (CHRISTOPHER DANIELS & FRANKIE KAZARIAN) VS. THE MOTOR CITY MACHINE GUNS (CHRIS SABIN & ALEX SHELLEY)

The Addiction’s second reign as ROH World Tag Team Champions had auspicious beginnings when they managed to work their way into title contention – and a questionable victory – against an already battered War Machine.   Since then, The Addiction have maintained the same arrogant confidence they made their trademark the first time they were World Tag Team Champions (of the World).  But with a tag team scene as deep as Ring of Honor’s, there’s always a long line of challengers waiting for the champs!

Chris Sabin and Alex Shelley have been on a hot streak since reuniting the Motor City Machine Guns!  Undefeated in tag team competition, it seemed only a matter of time until they earned a championship opportunity.  The pieces fell into place on the latest episode of Ring of Honor television when The Addiction’s arrogance finally got the best of them.  Impulsively declaring that the next team to beat them would get a tag championship shot at BEST IN THE WORLD, they took on the MCMG and RPG Vice at the same time.  The Guns came out on top, and now they have a shot at gold on June 24th!

Can they keep their hot streak alive and make history at the same time?  For all the international success of Sabin and Shelley, one major goal has evaded them: becoming ROH World Tag Team Champions.

Last year the Best Fans on The Planet SOLD OUT Terminal 5 in New York City to witness Jay Briscoe & Jay Lethal battle to see who ROH’s Undisputed Champion would be.

Tickets are available NOW; you will need to get your tickets early before they do in fact SELL OUT! Click HERE for BITW and HERE for the National TV Taping the next day
