ROH Best In The World 2016 Main Event Announced



Ring of Honor has just announced what they are calling the “biggest rematch in ROH history” for the June 24th Best in the World PPV in Concord, North Carolina. ROH World Champion Jay Lethal will defend his title against former champion Jay Briscoe.

The following is part of a press release issued by Ring of Honor earlier today:

The stars of RING OF HONOR return to the Charlotte area for BEST IN THE WORLD Weekend on Friday June 24, with 9 PM EST bell time for BEST IN THE WORLD LIVE on Pay Per view! The following night, ROH will conduct a National Television Taping starting at 6 PM EST. Both events will take place at the Cabarrus Arena in Concord, NC just outside of Charlotte!

Fans will be able to watch this extravaganza in the United States on all major carriers and worldwide on but nothing beats seeing the hard-hitting, fast-paced action LIVE and in person!

ROH Matchmaker Nigel McGuinness announced at the Toronto stop of the War of the Worlds stop that the MAIN EVENT for BEST IN THE WORLD has been signed for Friday June 24 and it is The BIGGEST REMATCH IN ROH HISTORY, one year in the making!


For well over two years, ROH World Champion Jay Lethal has held one or both of the ROH World singles championships. Now, as his reign continues to grow in length and increasingly historic proportion, Lethal believes that there are no more challengers left to defeat.

The stars of Ring of Honor disagree.

More matches for the June return to PPV will be announced in the coming weeks. Wrestlers already signed to appear include The Addiction, War Machine, The Young Bucks, Bobby Fish, Kyle O’Reilly, Mark Briscoe, Motor City Machine Guns, Roderick Strong, Dalton Castle, ACH, Donovan Dijak, Silas Young, 2016 Top Prospect Lio Rush, the All night Express and more.

Author’s Note: Kind of disappointed that ROH doesn’t have another opponent for Jay Lethal at Best in the World, but it is still a big match. Very interested to see how the show will turn out this year. Looking forward to it.
