    It is official! ROH World Champion Jay Briscoe will face off against ROH World Television Champion Jay Lethal with both championships on the line at Best in The World ’15: Battle of The Belts. This event will be live on Pay Per View from Terminal 5 in New York City on Friday, June 19, 2015 at 9:00 pm EDT.

    It is very rare in history that we get to see the two best in their respective sport face off. We seem to end up with questions such as who would win if Muhammad Ali faced Mike Tyson, or if the Bill Russell led Boston Celtics of the 1960’s faced the Michael Jordan led Chicago Bulls of the 1990’s. In 2015 there are two individual stars that wear the gold in Ring of Honor: ROH World Champion Jay Briscoe and ROH World Television Champion Jay Lethal.

    Jay Briscoe is an ROH original who debuted in Ring of Honor on the very first show in February of 2002. As part of a tag team with his brother Mark, the duo would go on to become the best tag team in Ring of Honor history, winning the titles a record 8 times, holding them for a combined 807 days and successfully defending them a total of 36 times. He would finally obtain singles glory when he defeated Kevin Steen in April of 2013 to become the ROH World Champion! After being stripped of the championship due to injury, he would return with an unmatched hunger in his eyes to regain his prized possession. On September 6, 2014 he would defeat “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin to begin his second reign as champion and he has not looked back!

    Jay Lethal debuted in Ring of Honor in 2003. He would have mixed success until 2005 when he won the now defunct ROH Pure Championship. He would leave Ring of Honor in 2006, only to return in 2011. Upon returning fans witnessed a new intensity, a bigger personality and a man destined for bigger things. He became ROH World Television Champion by defeating El Generico in August of 2011. After losing the championship, Lethal would make the most impactful decision of his career as he would employ the services of Truth Martini to help him defeat Tomasso Ciampa to win his second ROH World Television Championship. He won the championship on April 4, 2014 and has demolished any and all records associated with that title through today! He has doubled and tripled the previous records associated with the title and shows no sign of slowing down!

    Jay Briscoe is the rough and ready ROH World Champion, ready to fight at the drop of a hat. Jay Lethal is the confident classy and self proclaimed “Greatest First Generation Wrestler” who has faced and defeated every challenger to date. Briscoe has not been pinned or submitted in over 807 Days. Lethal has been ROH World Television Champion for a record 409 days. There hace been simmering tensions as Lethal has been making claims that he is not just the ROH World Television Champion but that he is the only champion! Briscoe has taken offense and stated its time for Lethal to “Man-Up” and back up those words.

    On Friday, June 19, 2015 these two record setting superstars will step in the ring and put an end to the question of who truly is the better man. Is it Jay Briscoe, the ROH World Champion who hasn’t felt defeat in over 2 years? Or is it Jay Lethal, who has successfully defended his championship for over a year? This is a chance to witness a once in a lifetime dream match. The two very best wrestlers in the world in the same ring at the same time with both championships on the line! Is Briscoe the best or is it Jay Lethal? Be there live in NYC or watch live from the comfort of your home on Pay Per View.
