ROH issued the following:
We are just a few days away from GLOBAL WARS and the WAR OF THE WORLDS TOUR! The collaborative relationship between Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro Wrestling continues, bringing you matches and experiences you can’t find anywhere else! First up, on Sunday May 8th, GLOBAL WARS is coming to you LIVE on pay-per-view from Chicago Ridge. This massive event kicks off a busy week for the stars of ROH and NJPW, who are hitting the road to Dearborn, Toronto, and New York City!
ROH Nigel McGuinness has signed the a HUGE, first-time ever tag team bout for Dearborn that may have championship implications following the Global Wars pay-per-view!
THE BRISCOES (JAY & MARK) vs. THE MOTOR CITY MACHINE GUNS (CHRIS SABIN & ALEX SHELLEY)
For months, Jay and Mark Briscoe have declared their intentions: they want to climb the mountainous Ring of Honor tag team division for a record-setting ninth time. During Night 2 of Super Card of Honor in Dallas, the Briscoes earned a ROH World Tag Team title shot by winning a four-corners tag team bout and will face champions War Machine at Global Wars. As the last team to beat War Machine, the Briscoes are brimming with confidence heading into this championship clash!
But the Ring of Honor originals who proudly proclaim that they have been ROH “Since Day One” never turn down a fight and have signed to face the Motor City Machine Guns for the very first time in a two-on-two bout in Dearborn!
The Machine Guns reunited in Las Vegas at 14th Anniversary and have jumped into the deep end of the most competitive tag team division in professional wrestling. After dispatching the Addiction, Sabin and Shelley took their brand of Detroit violence straight to teams like the Young Bucks, reDRagon, and, yes, the Briscoes! The two teams were two-thirds of the main event in West Warwick, RI – after being left for dead following a brutal attack in San Antonio by the Addiction, the Guns put forth a world-class effort before falling just short to the Briscoes.
The Guns petitioned Nigel McGuinness for a chance to meet the Briscoes in full health. Now, in Dearborn, the Briscoes and the Guns, no strangers to worldwide gold, will collide for the VERY FIRST TIME in a two-on-two, tag-team dream match! With so many teams jockeying for position in the deepest tag team division in the world, and the possibility of the Briscoes coming into this match as ROH World Tag Team champions, this first-time match-up has the potential to rock the entire tag team landscape!
