Briscoes/Bravados in Tag Team Lottery and Bravados/WGTT at the Charlotte show:
It was announced last week (http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/the...as-been-drawn/) that Jay & Mark Briscoe claimed the third of four spots in the ROH Tag Team Lottery tournament. With Adam Cole & Kyle O’Reilly vs. Cedric Alexander & Caprice Coleman already set for one match, the only thing left to be determined was just who would face Jay & Mark.
ROH officials elected to wait until after “Best in the World 2011” to see who came out of the Elimination Tag Title Match with the belts and, in hindsight, they feel that was certainly the best decision. ROH officials, as a result of what went down in NYC, also made a choice to forego the random selection process and handpick the final team.
That team that will take on Jay & Mark Briscoe will be Lance & Harlem…The Bravado Brothers. Why did ROH officials pass on the random drawing in this case? Well word has it that following the Bravados blatant interference in the phenomenal Cole & O’Reilly vs. Generation Me bout on Sunday that caused the first disqualification in ROH in quite some time, officials are also just sick and tired of hearing them whine and complain about opportunities. So The Bravados will get a chance to prove they deserve it when they take on the former 6-time Tag Champs on July 8th in Richmond, VA! Tickets for that live event can be purchased here: http://www.rohstore.com/index.php?di...product_id=209.
But that’s not all that’s in store for the Grandma’s boys from North Carolina; also in their future, right in their home state: the ROH World Tag Champions Charlie Haas & Shelton Benjamin! The Bravados have stared down the ring at Wrestling’s Greatest Tag Team once before when they were annihilated on HDNet, and that was against a WGTT nowhere near as angry as Charlie & Shelton are after NYC. And should Lance & Harlem pull out a pair of wins in Richmond & earn a shot at the Tag Titles, and WGTT retain in their title defense that night, then this match will be for the ROH World Tag Team Titles!

So the Bravados are in for the fights of their lives next week; versus Jay & Mark Briscoe in Richmond and versus Haas & Benjamin in Charlotte! Can the croquet playing, sweater vest wearing Grandma’s boys step up to the plate and finally prove they deserve the opportunities they’ve demanded?
No more interference, no Truth Martini, no Michael Elgin, no random masked assailant, no Christopher Daniels, no one but the new ROH World TV Champion El Generico, Roderick Strong, and four walls of steel pipe, metal mesh fencing, and pain. That is what Generico wants from the House of Truth….
Since this issue between Generico and the HoT first started, it has been littered with outside interference. From something as simple as the use of a title belt like at “SoCal Showdown II” to disguising someone all in black at “Honor Takes Center Stage: Chapter 1” when the HoT was banned from ringside, Generico has been forced to deal with a numbers game for months now. He is sick of it, ROH management is sick of it, and after word of the above interview got back to ROH officials Sunday night, they have decided to officially do something about it.
In Charlotte, NC on Saturday night July 9th it will be the newly crowned ROH World TV Champion El Generico vs. former ROH World Champion Roderick Strong inside a Steel Cage! Both men are familiar with this instrument of suffering, as both have competed inside the ROH cage before, but neither in quite some time.
Generico just beat Strong’s HoT ally Christopher Daniels to capture the TV Title, Strong had an extremely successful tour of Pro Wrestling NOAH that ended in a loss to Kotaro Suzuki in a GHC Jr. Heavyweight Title match, and now, after months of battling, Generico & Strong will collide one last time inside the cage. ROH officials have ruled the World TV Title will not be on the line in this grudge match but what will be on the line is the bodies of both Roderick and Generico as they attempt to finish this once and for all!
Generico vs. Strong, Steel Cage Match, July 9th in Charlotte, NC, get your tickets now: http://www.rohstore.com/index.php?di...product_id=210!!! And keep an eye on ROH’s official YouTube page for word from Strong’s “Life Intervention Expert” Truth Martini and hopefully from Strong himself…
No more interference, no Truth Martini, no Michael Elgin, no random masked assailant, no Christopher Daniels, no one but the new ROH World TV Champion El Generico, Roderick Strong, and four walls of steel pipe, metal mesh fencing, and pain. That is what Generico wants from the House of Truth.
My God this is awesome, and I predicted & wanted this to end in a cage. Well, this or Daniels, but Daniels is gone, so this is very nice booking too.
Btw, that promo from Generico is amazing. "No more amigo..."
