Tony Khan confirms The Briscoes are signed to 'long-term' ROH contracts

The Briscoes will challenge FTR for the ROH Tag Team titles at Death Before Dishonor.

The Briscoes are factored into the long-term plans for Tony Khan's Ring of Honor.

On a media call to promote this Saturday's ROH Death Before Dishonor pay-per-view, Khan confirmed on Thursday that The Briscoes (Jay & Mark Briscoe) are under long-term contracts with ROH. The Briscoes are challenging FTR for the ROH Tag Team titles in a two-out-of-three falls match at Death Before Dishonor.

Khan spoke about The Briscoes' contract status when asked if there are any wrestlers signed to ROH full-time who aren't currently appearing on AEW television.

"The Briscoes are under contract to Ring of Honor and they're long-term contracts," Khan said. "And I think there are some other developmental wrestlers, but really the key, probably the biggest names, that are exclusively signed to Ring of Honor are The Briscoes. They are some of the biggest names in Ring of Honor history. They are Hall of Famers. There are some others, but I think that would be a great example of a key act where they haven't really appeared in AEW yet but they are signed to Ring of Honor and me."

Fightful reported this March that a "person of influence" within WarnerMedia didn't want The Briscoes signed to AEW because of homophobic tweets that Jay Briscoe had made in 2013. Jay again apologized for those tweets during a March appearance on the Battleground Podcast.

FTR vs. The Briscoes is a rematch from Supercard of Honor, which was the first ROH event of the Khan era. The first meeting between the teams was a match-of-the-year candidate, with FTR defeating The Briscoes to win the ROH Tag Team titles.

The Briscoes are 12-time ROH Tag Team Champions. They were inducted into the ROH Hall of Fame earlier this year as part of the promotion's inaugural Hall of Fame class.

The Briscoes have also appeared in Impact Wrestling this year, winning the Impact Tag Team titles in May before dropping them to The Good Brothers in June.
