Quote ROH made the following announcement today�

Ring of Honor is excited to announce that we have come to terms with Jay & Mark Briscoe and the duo have re-signed contracts with ROH Wrestling. The 6-Time ROH World tag team Champions have been a part of Ring of Honor since "Era of Honor Begins" in 2002 with Jay participating in the first official match in ROH history. Since that time, the brothers from Sandy Fork, DE have gone on to become arguably the greatest tag team in ROH's history. With classic matches against teams such as Aries & Strong, The Kings of Wrestling, The American Wolves, CM Punk & Colt Cabana, and more, we look forward to seeing what the future has in store for the brothers Briscoe.

"It's exciting to have two of ROH's cornerstones on board." said ROH Vice-President Sydney Eick, "Jay & Mark have set the bar for tag team wrestling here in Ring of Honor since 2002, and we know they will continue to be the standard bearers for that division going forward."

In addition, ROH is also happy to announce that we have signed both Adam Cole and Mike Bennett to contracts as well. Adam Cole, a 21 year old graduate of the CZW Wrestling Academy, has been wrestling for two and half years, and has made quite an impact with his high-flying skills and solid technical base. Mike Bennett has competed for ROH on several occasions in the past, including bouts with Rhett Titus, Jason Blade, and most recently this past weekend at the "ROH on HDNet" TV Tapings where Cole also competed. ROH officials look forward to seeing what these two up and coming athletes have to offer in the future.

Should have said how long they were for to make the announcement more meaningful.
 
They might be as short as six month contracts or as long as three years, nobody knows.
 
I can only assume WWE and TNA weren't interested in them for them to stay where they are.

A lot of priase needs to go to both of them for staying loyal, they are one of the finest tag teams anywhere right now.  It maybe a case of seeing what they do in singles now.
Lifes what you make it.

I think they'll eventually get their shot in singles. But right now, they're the measuring sticks in ROH's tag team division. The Kings of Wrestling might be the ROH World Tag Team Champions but The Briscoes are still the best damn tag team ROH ever had.

Indeed and with them very much still in their prime it would be smart to get as much out of them before spliting the team up.  Also because they have been the team for so long, it becomes like they are the ones to top, and they keep going out of the hunger to remain the best and slive off the compution.

Quote As noted before, WWE has interest in Ring of Honor tag team Jay and Mark Briscoe. The two have been blocked from signing with WWE by Ring of Honor, due to ROH enforcing their contracts.

Ring of Honor officials have also blocked wrestler Adam Cole from signing with WWE.

There is said to be discontent in the ROH locker room due to frustration with booker Jim Cornette and other issues that have to do with contracts and their limitations when it comes to doing work on the independents. Another source claims those rumors of discontent are untrue.
 
The dirt sheets will always blame Jim Cornette.  But I have a feel that money would be the biggest issue within ROH.  The economy still isn't very good.  And most of the ROH guys really depend upon making their money working independent dates.
 
I still don't see the Briscoe Brothers translating to the WWE TV-PG kid-friendly product.  I think they could do wonders in TNA.  
 
Adam Cole already has that generic FCW look.  I've only seen him a couple of time as part of the tag team Future Shock.

I really dont want to see these guys go to wwe. They'll probably have them do a stupid gimmick while changing their name into something stupid and theres a certain chris hero who has a horrible name
YES! YES! YES!

What kind of gimmick would the Briscoe Brothers get in WWE?
 
 
 
Godwinns 2012 anyone?

From what little of them i have seen, the Briscoes would NEVER fit in the "wwe universe". They'd never see the light of wwe TV because they wouldnt make it out of FCW. That said:
 
Its got to be a real kick in the nuts for these guys and Cole that ROH is holding them to a contract that pales in comparison to what they would get with wwe.
 
ROH is having alot of problems these days it seems
TNA Would Be Nothing Without #TeamDixie

Kinda hard to understand why ROH couldn't hold back Chris Hero and Claudio Castagnoli (who were their top tag team along with the Briscoes prior to Shelton Benjamin & Charlie Haas' arrival) but they've done their damndest to make sure the Briscoes don't jump to WWE.

Personally, I'm curious to see how they'd be booked. That'd be an improvement on some of the current tag teams in WWE at the moment.
