A very big moment is happening in ROH. There is going to be an epic match between Jay Lethal and Jay Briscoe on June 19, 2015 in New York City. After a very long buildup to this moment, both the World Heavyweight Championship and World Television Championship will be on the line, with one man walking away as a double champion. Ring of Honor is banking big time on this pay per view being able to draw in new fans.

After several attempts at trying to get a contract with WWE, the Briscoes are said to be done with the promotion. They have come to accept that the company simply does not value them at the level that the brothers believe themselves to be. Jay Briscoe and Mark Briscoe are content with remaining in ROH for the rest of their careers. The former is receiving more backstage power, so the latter should have a good amount of job security.

As a sign of how desperately ROH wanted the Briscoes to stick around instead of leaving for WWE, there are rumors floating around right now that the front office has offered Jay Briscoe the lead booking position, which would enable him to keep he and his brother looking strong for this next portion of their careers. Combine that position of power with a higher salary than what the competition was offering, and you can understand why he stayed.

It looks like the Briscoes are stuck in ROH. The two brothers went to WWE to see if they could get an offer, which they did. Mark Briscoe and Jay Briscoe allowed their current company the opportunity to negotiate. Ring of Honor gave them a higher offer because they desperately needed the two of them to stick around. The two then went back to World Wrestling Entertainment, but the company refused to budge on their original offer.

Earlier in the week, Samoa Joe was spotted hanging out with other wrestlers at Walemania. It's not all fun and games, however. The former world heavyweight champion worked a match for ROH, where he challenged Jay Briscoe for their version of the heavyweight championship. Briscoe successfully retained, but that does not come as a surprise to those who believe that Joe will be signing up with the WWE developmental program soon.

For quite some time now, rumors about the Briscoes signing with WWE have been floating around. The speculations are flying high once again. Reports have surfaced that the company has renewed their interest in signing Jay Briscoe and Mark Briscoe to a contract. The former is actually the current ROH Heavyweight Champion, so that would be quite a boost to the roster. Despite their talents, the brothers would still have to go through NXT.
