Jay Briscoe vs EC3 Officially Set For ROH 19th Anniversary Pay-Per-View
A grudge match has been confirmed for Ring of Honor's 19th Anniversary pay-per-view.
On the latest edition of ROH Week By Week, it was announced that Jay Briscoe vs. EC3 will take place at the promotion's 19th Anniversary PPV on Friday, March 26. The match was originally supposed to happen at Final Battle in December, but EC3 was pulled from that show due to pre-travel COVID-19 testing.
EC3 returned to ROH television last month and helped cost The Briscoes a number one contender's tag team match. The storyline was that EC3 paid off Flip Gordon to interfere in the match.
The latest episode of ROH TV featured Briscoe and EC3 both taking part in a four corner survival match to decide ROH World Champion Rush's challenger for the 19th Anniversary PPV. Briscoe and EC3 fought to the back near the end of the match. Jay Lethal then pinned Matt Taven to get the win after Taven was distracted by The Righteous' Vita VonStarr.
It was announced last month that EC3 has signed a contract with ROH and is making ROH his pro wrestling home.
Rush vs. Lethal for the ROH World Championship and Briscoe vs. EC3 are the first two matches that have been announced for the 19th Anniversary PPV. The event, which is ROH's second PPV since the COVID-19 pandemic began, will be available via PPV and HonorClub. Every ROH title will be defended on the show.
Last year's scheduled 18th Anniversary PPV didn't take place due to the pandemic.
