I wouldn’t be surprised if Jay Briscoe doesn’t hold the ROH title long. I bet ROH officials are on his ass right now. But with all this now, who would be the new champ? You never know as Jay was very unlikely to win it in the first place himself.
I can think of only two scrnarios.
1. ROH is forced to abort Steen’s face run and have him turn heel again by beating Briscoe for the ROH title with help from S.C.U.M. and reveal that Steen’s beef with S.C.U.M. was a ruse.
2. ROH turns Mark Briscoe heel, has him join S.C.U.M., and beat Jay for the ROH title.
Of course the worst case scenario is that Sinclair Broadcasting washes their hands of the situation by either shutting ROH down or selling it.
