Ring of Honor issued the following:
After more than a decade, FINAL BATTLE RETURNS TO PHILADELPHIA! On December 18th, Ring of Honor will present FINAL BATTLE 2015 on Pay-per-view. Plus, the very next night, we will return for the AFTERMATH and a huge television taping!
The heart and soul of ROH
is in its Philadelphia roots. For the first time since 2004, FINAL BATTLE heads home! This year, we will be LIVE on PPV from the legendary 2300 Arena! FINAL BATTLE marks the culmination of a year’s worth of rivalries and competition. There’s no telling who will show up and who will leave as a champion. FINAL BATTLE is a must-see event for all professional wrestling fans! And the next night, all of the fallout will spill into a huge ROH television event!
– TRIPLE THREAT # 1 CONTENDERS MATCH – All Night Express (Rhett Titus & Kenny King) vs. Young Bucks vs. Mark & Jay Briscoe
The tag team scene in Ring of Honor has never been more competitive! Current champions, The Kingdom, have been flaunting their success both here in ROH and internationally as they tour with NJPW
. But their grasp on the ROH World Tag Team titles is far from unchallenged!
Bennett and Taven’s reign began back at ALL STAR EXTRAVAGANZA in San Antonio. Can they close out 2015 with the belts around their waist and a smile on Maria’s face? We will find out LIVE on pay-per-view! The massive force that is WAR MACHINE is already scheduled to face The Kingdom at FINAL BATTLE on December 18th, with the championship on the line.
But regardless of who walks out of the 2300 Arena with a victory, on that same night we will also determine their next challenger in a TRIPLE THREAT #1 CONTENDERS MATCH! Three of the top tag teams in the world will be pitted against each other to crown the number one contender to the ROH World Tag Team Championship.
You cannot talk tag team wrestling without mentioning “Dem Boys”! When it comes to teams in ROH, Jay and Mark Briscoe have been setting the standard for well over a decade. With a combined EIGHT title reigns – the current record – The Briscoes have defined the tag team scene and remain perennial contenders for the gold! On December 18th, they have the chance to secure a championship opportunity and get one step closer to becoming NINE time ROH World Tag Team Champions.
Also added to the fray will be the indisputably hottest commodity in wrestling today, The Young Bucks! International superstars, the Bucks recently made a long term commitment to Ring of Honor and the best professional wrestling on the planet. With speculation about their future put to rest, Matt and Nick Jackson are free to focus on the top prize for any ROH tag team. But they might want to pay particularly close attention to the final team in this Triple Threat contest…ALL NIGHT EXPRESS!
Ever since reuniting at ALL STAR EXTRAVAGANZA, ANX have been on fire! Rhett Titus and Kenny King are former ROH World Tag Team Champions who were never pinned or submitted to lose their titles. This has made them more motivated than ever to become champions once again! They have a major psychological advantage going into this Triple Threat. At our recent stop in Hopkins, MN, ANX managed to score a visible pin over the Young Bucks for over ten seconds without the referee able to make the count. But this has proven that Titus and King CAN beat the Bucks!
Who will leave FINAL BATTLE with an ROH World Tag Team Championship opportunity on lock? You can watch LIVE on pay-per-view to find out…or be there yourself in Philadelphia! As always, ROHWRESTLING.com
is the place for the latest updates on stars and matches signed for December 18th and 19th, but don’t wait to get your tickets. ROH events in Philadelphia SELL OUT, and FINAL BATTLE 2015 is a can’t miss conclusion to our best year yet!
