    This weekend, the ROAD TO THE BEST IN THE WORLD heads through Amarillo, TX and Oklahoma City! Here's what's lined up for Amarillo on Friday, May 29th. To get your tickets to this huge live event, click HERE!

    ROH World Television Champion JAY LETHAL vs. MARK BRISCOE vs. WILL FERRARA vs. SILAS YOUNG

    Jay Lethal would argue that he is the best wrestler on the planet! 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? 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?


    Caprice Coleman will be stepping into the biggest match of his career in Amarillo. He is receiving the opportunity of a lifetime. Though it is a non-title match, a win here catapults him in line for a title opportunity. Jay Briscoe, who has not been pinned or submitted in over 2 years, has the proverbial target on his back. With his much anticipated Champion vs. Champion match against Jay Lethal on the horizon, is he ripe for the pickings or is he hyper focused and ready for Caprice and the world?


    The Kingdom’s Adam Cole will take on “Mr ROH” Roderick Strong. Former ROH World Champion Adam Cole returned from injury recently and nearly defeated IWGP Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles. Keeping that pressure on himself, he has signed on to face Strong, who is arguably the hottest wrestler in the world right now. Strong is on a tear and looking towards his #1 contenders match at Best in The World. Can Strong keep rolling? Can Cole prove to the world he is still one of the very best?

    WAR MACHINE vs. THE KINGDOM (Michael Bennett & Matt Taven w/Maria Kanellis)

    War Machine, Raymond Rowe & Hanson, will face current IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Champions The Kingdom, Matt Taven & Michael Bennett w/Maria Kanellis. The destructive War Machine have been on a tear since Raymond Rowe's return this past March. They are on a mission to win the ROH World Tag Team Championships and The Kingdom are standing in the way. Taven & Bennett have not only been proving their greatness here in the US, but shining across the world! Can the Kingdom overcome the size and brutality of War Machine? Is War Machine keeping an eye on the Kingdom’s mastermind, Maria Kanellis? Both teams are a step away from an ROH World Tag Team Title opportunity and the winner in this match could grab that chance first!


    ACH will face off against former ROH World Champion “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin. With a #1 contenders match coming up at Best in The World, Michael Elgin signing to face ACH is a real gamble. ACH is versatile and hungry, willing to take to the air to bring home a win. Elgin will be riding a great 2015 record into Amarillo and ACH could be in serious trouble. Elgin is hungry, focused and determined to regain the ROH World Championship and has stated nothing will stop him.


    The unique and compelling Dalton Castle will take on the masked lothario, Romantic Touch! Dalton Castle has fans buzzing. Whether it’s his elaborate ring entrance or his peculiar in ring style, there is no doubt he is coming to leave an impression. Romantic Touch is looking to get on the winning side of the tracks. Can he muffle the buzz of Castle with a win? Will “The 24/7 Party” be able to defeat the masked lover boy in Amarillo? You will need to be there to find out!
