At “Best in the World 2011”, Matt & Nick Jackson made their return to Ring of Honor after a nearly a year away to go toe-to-toe with Adam Cole & Kyle O’Reilly in New York City. The match, available exclusively on the DVD release, proved to be a tremendous contest between four hungry young athletes but was brought to a sour end when Lancelot & Harlem Bravado interfered in the bout. Ruled a DQ victory for the Jackson’s, the four match participants turned the tables on the Bravados and left them crawling away with their tails between their legs.
Adam Cole & Kyle O’Reilly would get their chance at revenge at “Tag Team Turmoil 2011” when they beat the Bravados in the Tag Contender’s Lottery to earn a future shot at the ROH World Tag Titles as well as a $5,000 bonus check. But Cole & O’Reilly were still left with a sour taste from NYC…
As for Matt & Nick, they have been left for months with no closure. Their match with the team now dubbed Future Shock was ruined and The Bravados basically got away with it from the perspective of the Jackson brothers. Well there is good news for two of the teams involved in this triangle….
At “Death Before Dishonor IX” on September 17th, live on iPPV, the Young Bucks will return to ROH to take on BOTH Future Shock (Adam Cole & Kyle O’Reilly) and the Bravado Brothers in a 3-Way Elimination Bout! The battles between Cole & O’Reilly and The Bravados have gone down across the country, and now the Bucks will have their opportunity to exact some revenge on Lancelot & Harlem for what went down at “BITW ‘11”!
“This sounds like a conspiracy to me if I’ve ever heard it.” offered Lancelot Bravado, “I think Ring of Honor officials have it out for me and my brother Harlem because we showed up the Briscoes in Richmond and because of how we took it to Charlie & Shelton in Charlotte. My grandma once told me that nothing breeds jealousy like success and I think everyone in the tag team scene is coming down with some green in their eyes. I suppose me and my brother will just have to show everyone, again, why the Bravado Bandwagon is what’s carrying ROH to the promised land in 2011!”
“This is perfect.” said Matt Jackson, “Not only do we get to finish what we started with Adam Cole and Kyle O’Reilly, but we get to give those obnoxious boys from North Carolina a beating they’ve had coming since June. Words can’t adequately capture how Nick and I feel to be back in the ROH ring again, but our actions will definitely showcase how we feel about Lancelot and Harlem. Then, once they’re out of the way, me and Nick, Adam and Kyle, we can show the world what tag team wrestling in ROH is all about!”

There are a lot of people who work at the WWE offices worried that another "Titan Towers Massacre" is about to happen. The term comes from WWE's mass firings in early 2009. Members of the WWE staff are expecting the company to start looking for ways to cut more costs so they can be more financially beneficial. Several employees are looking at what might be next for them because some feel it's time to move on.
