FTR and The Briscoes had one of the matches of the year at Ring of Honor’s Supercard of Honor pay-per-view. The AEW stars defeated the ROH legends to capture the ROH World Tag Team Championships. Critics and fans alike gave the match a ton of praise.

The Briscoes have not been able to land a contract with AEW. WarnerMedia wants nothing to do with the team given Jay Briscoe’s history of homophobic remarks. One big name in AEW hopes that changes.

Jim Ross recently spoke about the bout on Grillin’ JR. Ross said that FTR might be the best tag team in the world today. JR would love the opportunity to call a rematch in AEW.

“FTR has roughly elevated themselves to arguably the best tag team in the world. The match they had recently with The Young Bucks was nothing but stimulating. I thought it was just terrific. The match they had with The Briscoes, I’d like to see that match returned, because I’d like to call it. I like The Briscoes’ game, there are really good.”

Fans would love to see a rematch as well. FTR has been on fire lately. In addition to their match with The Briscoes, Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler also had a phenomenal match with The Young Bucks.

Jay Briscoe’s past comments are going to prove to be a huge hurdle to a rematch taking place in AEW. If Jim Ross had his way, it would already be scheduled. Things may change in the future, but for now, it doesn’t seem likely.
