Eddie Kingston says Mark Briscoe has been earning the title shot “for years.”

The ROH World Title will be on the line at Supercard of Honor 2024, as Eddie Kingston defends against Mark Briscoe.

In a video message that aired during the March 14th episode of ROH television, Kingston said he wanted Briscoe to have the opportunity at the “birthplace of Ring of Honor.”

The pay-per-view emanates from the Liacouras Center in Philadelphia on April 5th.

In the vignette, Kingston said:

Ring of Honor Supercard coming up. It’s in the birthplace of Ring of Honor in Philly. And there was someone almost about a year ago, very close to a year ago, who was supposed to have a title shot at Claudio, but got injured, and never got his title shot.

And that’s you Mark — that’s you, Chicken, Mark Briscoe baby.

Mark, you know this: you weren’t allowed on the first Ring of Honor show ‘cause you were 17. But you were there, with your brother Jay…So why not man? It’s beautiful. Why not? It’s only, what, two, maybe three hours away from home? Bring all your peoples man.

Not because I’m gonna beat you up, no, not like Okada who I’m going to scar, mentally, emotionally or physically. Either way I’ll be satisfied.

No, no, me and you are gonna show what the beautiful, beautiful art of professional wrestling is. We’re not gonna play with each other. We’re not gonna dance. We’re going to fight.

And we’re gonna fight for the Ring of Honor World Championship in Philadelphia, where it all started. Because I respect you, Mark.

And I don’t care who likes this or not, I really don’t. Come say something to me and let’s figure it out. But you have been earning this shot for years. You deserve this shot. And I want to be the man who gives you that shot.

Kingston won the ROH World Championship from Claudio Castagnoli on September 20th, 2023, at AEW Dynamite: Grand Slam.
