When AEW launched the ROH Closing Battle PPV for December 10, I didn’t give it so much thought. The Full Gear PPV is in focus first. Nonetheless, upon nearer inspection for the Closing Battle trailer, there merely may very well be a cool trigger to get excited for that current.
The Closing Battle trailer choices a variety of in type ROH talents. There’s one particularly combined with the absence of his brother that has me questioning if that may very well be a tease for the precept event. Check out the video and see for individuals who can spot what I see.
Samoa Joe does the voice-over with the message:
Closing Battle. How does one put collectively for such an element? Chaos is the place order not exists. Battle is stable in chaotic fires.
The montage comprises perform photos of Joe, Matt Taven, Mike Bennett, Maria Kanellis, Daniel Garcia, FTR, Toa Liona, Chris Jericho, Wheeler Yuta, Dalton Citadel, Mercedes Martinez, Brian Cage, Willow Nightingale, and Jay Lethal. These largely make sense as current ROH champions and completely different names associated to the ROH mannequin.
There have been moreover two photos of Jay Briscoe, which appeared notably peculiar with the absence of brother and tag workforce affiliate Mark Briscoe. The twelve-time ROH tag champ Briscoe brothers have already danced with FTR on the earlier two ROH PPVs. Furthermore, the story route for FTR seems to be pointing in direction of wrestling the Kingdom duo of Taven and Bennett.
So, the place would Jay slot in with out Mark? I’m Jericho and his need to desecrate the legacy of ROH by defeating earlier world champions. Jay is a two-time ROH world champ. He may very well be a significant choice from the candidate list to headline a PPV in opposition to Jericho. And if that’s the case, take my money. Jericho versus Jay is a match I want to see. The promo hype may very well be wild.
This conjecture could all be for naught if Jericho can’t get earlier Full Gear to retain the Ocho in opposition to Claudio Castagnoli, Bryan Danielson, and Sammy Guevara in a four-way.
Nonetheless, Chris Jericho versus Jay Briscoe is good to dream about as a attainable Closing Battle major event.
Would Jericho versus Briscoe demand your consideration for the Closing Battle PPV?
