In a momentous occasion steeped in emotion and familial pride, Mark Briscoe has etched his name in Ring of Honor history by clinching the prestigious Ring of Honor World Championship at ROH Supercard of Honor 2024.

With a backdrop of heartfelt support from his family members, including the stirring accompaniment of Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Gimme Back My Bullets” echoing through the arena, Briscoe stepped into the ring to face off against Eddie Kingston in a battle for the ages.

The championship match was anything but easy, as Kingston pushed Briscoe to his limits, resulting in intense exchanges that left Briscoe bloodied and the ring adorned with crimson pools. However, displaying resilience and determination, Briscoe weathered the storm, ultimately emerging victorious by pinning Kingston and seizing the Ring of Honor World Championship.

Following the hard-fought contest, the atmosphere shifted from fierce competition to one of camaraderie and celebration. Kingston joined Briscoe in a display of mutual respect, underscoring the sportsmanship inherent in the wrestling community. Briscoe’s triumph was further punctuated by the presence of his family members, including Papa Briscoe and his children, who shared in the joyous moment.


As the Ring of Honor roster gathered to hoist Briscoe on their shoulders, the significance of the win resonated deeply. For Briscoe, this victory held profound meaning beyond the championship title itself. Philadelphia, the birthplace of Ring of Honor, served as the backdrop for this historic achievement, commemorating a poignant parallel to his brother Jay Briscoe’s own Ring of Honor World Championship triumph on April 5, 2013.

Tragically, Jay Briscoe passed away in 2023, making Mark’s victory on April 5, 2024, all the more poignant as he reached for the sky, this time clutching the coveted Ring of Honor World Championship.
