ROH announced the following:

BREAKING NEWS: After suffering an injury at the 13TH ANNIVERSARY pay-per-view, TOMMASO CIAMPA has not been cleared to compete this Saturday in Baltimore.  Ciampa was scheduled to face current IWGP Heavyweight Champion AJ STYLES in a first-time-ever contest.  Unfortunately, Ciampa was injured during the “Winner Takes All” World Championship in Las Vegas. One of the most ferocious competitors in the world, Tommaso Ciampa gives 110% to every single match, but this time the consequences have put him on the shelf.

 

It was up Nigel McGuinness to determine a suitable replacement for Ciampa.  After much deliberation, McGuinness decided to present another unique matchup featuring a legendary ROH mainstay.  His choice presents an intriguing styles clash (no pun intended):

 

MARK BRISCOE vs. “THE PHENOMENAL” AJ STYLES

 

The favorite sons of Sandy Fork have been holding down Ring of Honor since day one!  As a team, they are record-holding tag team champions.  Currently, older brother Jay Briscoe is in his second reign as ROH World Champion.  But on March 7th, it’s baby brother Mark’s turn to shock the world!

 

Mark Briscoe is coming off a hard fought loss to Moose after an incredibly physical match that spilled into the ringside area.  But you can’t keep Chicken down for long!  Many claim that AJ Styles is the absolute best professional wrestler on the planet today.  There is no question that Styles as at the peak of his career.

 

Mark Briscoe’s legacy as a singles competitor will take a huge step forward in Baltimore!  Styles mixes technical proficiency with high risk offense unlike anyone else in the world.  But he hasn’t taken on ANYONE like the Master of Redneck Kung Fu!  You can still get tickets and see this live!  For tickets to our next ROH Television Taping in Baltimore,click HERE.
