A new title match has been announced for ROH Best in the World.

ROH Six-Man Tag Team Champions Shane Taylor Promotions (Shane Taylor, Moses & Kaun) will put their titles on the line against Dalton Castle, Eli Isom & Dak Draper at Best in the World. The pay-per-view is taking place at Chesapeake Employers Insurance Arena in Baltimore, Maryland on Sunday, July 11.

In storyline, the Six-Man Tag Team title match was made without Castle telling Isom and Draper about it first. Castle said Isom and Draper may not see it, but they know that the three of them have something powerful here.

Isom and Draper went to a 15-minute time limit draw against each other on ROH TV this April. They each wanted five more minutes added to the match, but Castle made his way out before it could be restarted. Castle said he was blown away by their match and wasn't there to fight them. Castle said he's been watching Isom and Draper since they came to ROH and has seen the growth that they've shown.

Castle told Isom and Draper that things have gotten a little dull around here. Castle said he wants to spice things up -- and Isom and Draper can help him with that. Castle looked at Draper and said he sees so much inside of him that he likes. Castle then looked at Isom and said he sees so much that he doesn't like. Castle kicked Isom in the groin but then did the same thing to Draper.

Isom and Draper then faced off in the first round of ROH's Survival of the Fittest tournament last month. Castle came out to ringside during the match and watched on. Castle leaving near the end of the match distracted Draper and caused him to lose.

Shane Taylor Promotions have held the ROH Six-Man Tag Team titles since winning them from Bandido, Flamita & Rey Horus this February.
