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.

While it certainly is not as prestigious as holding the world heavyweight championship, ROH has decided to honor Jay Lethal by allowing him to break a couple of records. The former TNA star is now the longest reigning television champion in the history of the promotion. Lethal has defended the belt successfully a total of 22 times, which is also a record. No word yet if management has considered rewarding him with the big prize.

When ROH reached out to Alberto Del Rio about working some shows for them in 2015, the former world heavyweight champion was allowed input as to which performers that he wanted to work with. Surprisingly, he specifically asked to work with ACH, as Del Rio is impressed with the San Antonio native. He also asked to work matches with Roderick Strong and Kyle O'Reilly. Reports have surfaced that Jay Lethal was another name on the list of opponents.
