    BEST IN THE WORLD 2015 is just weeks away! Ring of Honor returns to New York City at Terminal 5 on Friday, June 19th. This event will be seen across the US and Canada live on Pay-per-View starting at 9pm ET / 6pm Pacific.

    BEST IN THE WORLD returns to New York for the first time since 2012 for Battle of the Belts! ROH World Champion Jay Briscoe and ROH World Television Champion Jay Lethal FINALLY go head-to-head after months of Lethal claiming he is the only champion who matters in all of professional wrestling. But that's just ONE match in a full lineup comprised of the absolute best in the world...

    ROH World Tag Team Championship - NO DISQUALIFICATION

    reDRagon (Kyle O'Reilly & Bobby Fish) vs. The Addiction (Frankie Kazarian & Christopher Daniels


    For months, a mysterious group of masked individuals stalked Ring of Honor. Proclaiming themselves the Knights of the Rising Dawn, they hovered in the crowd and sent in bizarre clips of video manifesto. They would materialize in the audience - especially during championship matches - and, eventually, they started interfering physically in matches. For a while, it seemed that the KRD might have connections to The Kingdom: the similarly "regal" monikers, a glimpse of an incriminating T-shirt, and conspicuous use of The Kingdom's signature moveset.

    Shockingly, the KRD was revealed to be the work of Christopher Daniels, Frankie Kazarian, and CHRIS SABIN when they virtually stole the ROH World Tag Team Championships from reDRagon and left Kyle O'Reilly gushing blood in the ensuing beatdown. Ever since then, The Addiction and Sabin have stopped hiding their identities, gleefully flaunting the success of their plan. The Addiction, or "World Tag Team Champions of the World," claimed on a recent episode of ROH TV that they would give reDRagon one - and ONLY one - more opportunity to win their titles back.

    However, when it came time for the scheduled match, Bobby Fish was not cleared to compete. The Addiction gloated over the fact that they had carefully worded their challenge to exclude any sort of replacement for Fish, and assumed they would get the night off. But with the odds completely stacked against him, Kyle O'Reilly decided to go for the gold in a handicap match! O'Reilly proved why he is one of the best in the world today by holding his own against the two veteran champions, managing to catch them in devastating submission holds.

    No doubt sensing they underestimated this scenario, The Addiction chose to blatantly smash O'Reilly with a championship belt and get themselves disqualified. Traditionally, championships in ROH cannot change hands on a DQ, so The Addiction ran away with their titles and reDRagon was cheated out of their "one" chance at a rematch. Or so they thought.
    Due to the clearly dishonorable tactics of The Addiction, reDRagon WILL challenge for the World Tag Team Championship one more time: LIVE on pay-per-view at BEST IN THE WORLD! And on June 19th, The Addiction won't have another opportunity to weasel their way out of the arena on a technicality because this match is officially NO DISQUALIFICATION!
