ROH To Debut New Tag Team Titles At Supercard Of Honor XVI
ROH set to introduce new Tag Team Title belts at Supercard of Honor
Ring of Honor Supercard of Honor XVI is set to feature a five-team Reach for the Sky Ladder Match, with the winners being crowned the new ROH World Tag Team Champions.
The status of the titles has been up in the air since the tragic passing of Jay Briscoe in January 2023, with ROH Hall of Famer Mark Briscoe carrying both belts on his own ever since. Ahead of Supercard of Honor, ROH President Tony Khan revealed to Tim & Eli on Battleground that the classic titles have been retired and new belts will be presented to the winners of the Ladder Match on March 31:
"We were talking about ideas to pay tribute to the late, great Jamin Pugh - Jay Briscoe. So many of us loved Jay Briscoe, he's beloved in the locker room and there are wrestling fans all over the world that loved him. We wanted to pay tribute to him in Ring of Honor with something special and of all the ideas I heard, this was by far the best idea. It came from somebody who liked him a lot and wanted to contribute a good idea. It's really something that, Mark Briscoe thought it was a great idea, and that was important to me too. Having his opinion and having his buy in to this made all the difference in the world. It'll be new belts, we retired the old design," revealed Khan.
The Briscoes won the ROH World tag team Championship for a record 13th time at Final Battle in December 2022, defeating FTR in an instant classic Double Dog Collar Match.
The Lucha Brothers, Top Flight, Aussie Open, RUSH & Dralistico, and former ROH World Tag Team Champions The Kingdom will be vying for the new ROH World Tag Team Titles at Supercard of Honor.
