FTR Crowned Ring Of Honor World Tag Team Champions

FTR are the new Ring of Honor World Tag Team Champions after defeating The Briscoes in a brutal encounter at Supercard of Honor.

In one of the most anticipated matches of the entire WrestleMania weekend, FTR met The Briscoes in a blood-soaked affair at Supercard of Honor.

The heated rivalry between the two teams had been building since Final Battle, and come fight night, the animosity was there for all to see.

The early stages of the bout were punctuated with two teams trading breathtakingly hard strikes as the crowd roared their approval. As the match progressed, The Briscoes began to pick up the pace, but FTR stayed in contention matching them, step for step.

However, it was The Briscoes who earned the first near-fall of the contest via the Redneck Boogie, but Cash Wheeler kicked out at two. With Dax Harwood and Jay Briscoe both bleeding heavily, the former delivered a vertical suplex on Harwood from the ring apron to the floor.

While all four men laid out, they summoned their last reserves of energy and somehow climbed back into the ring. Once inside the ropes, the war recommenced, with right hands flying left and right.

The Briscoes called for the Doomsday Device, but Jay Briscoe got dumped to the floor, leaving the way clear for FTR to deliver the Big Rig and claim a memorable win. The victory meant that Harwood and Wheeler now hold both the ROH and AAA Tag Team Champions.

After the match the two teams shook hands, before FTR left the ring. But the action wasn’t quite over.

The Young Bucks ran in and attacked The Briscoes, causing Harwood and Wheeler to run back to the ring. Harwood then grabbed a microphone and challenged the Bucks to a match there and then, but they refused.

Instead, Matt Jackson challenged FTR to a match on the upcoming episode of AEW Dynamite.
