Best in the World is a month away and Ring of Honor has scheduled a couple Championship defenses.
In the month of May, the Briscoes defended their Tag Team Championship three times against New Japan Pro Wrestling talent including the Bullet Club and Los Ingobernables de Japon. At Best in the World, they will be wrestling the Young Bucks who beat them in a non-title four way survival tag team match during the Honor United tour. In the four times the two teams have met in a tag team championship match, each team has won two of those matches.
In a YouTube video (which can be seen at the top of this page), Ring of Honor announced Punishment Martinez and Adam Page in a singles match. The two have been feuding for months without a one on one match. After Martinez won the ROH Television tournament, the match changed to World Television Championship match and a Baltimore Street fight.
