For some time now many people where the under assumption that when the Briscoe's current deals in ROH were up they were leaving for the WWE. That seemed to be the case until a few days ago when a report came out that they actually are resigning with ROH after ROH made them a better offer that they couldn't turn down. Now you might wonder why or even how The Briscoe's could turn down the WWE.
Well reasons and some terms of the contract have actually been reported. The most important reason at least in my opinion that The Briscoe's stayed in ROH is because they are loyal to Ring of Honor. Considering the fact that The Briscoe's have been in ROH since the first day of the company it is not surprising that they are remaining loyal to the company. Many people think that in the world we live in today that the idea of loyalty is dead, but this report proves that idea to be wrong as this may further prove that loyalty isn't dead. (A current TNA star also attributed loyalty to his reason for staying)
As of the writing the terms seem to be 2 years for both Briscoe's and they also actually offered Jay the spot as booker of the company if he was to stay. Truth be told when ROH made a new offer they ask the WWE to match the offer or make a better one and the WWE refused. I would also like to think that part of the reason they stayed was because of the family farm in Delaware because in ROH they would still have to take care of it, but if they went to WWE they wouldn't have the time to take care of it. Another reason they didn't take the contract is because both Briscoe Brothers have families and they didn't want to uproot their families to move to Florida.
Author's Note: I view this as somewhat of a big signing for ROH that they were able to keep the Briscoe's away from the WWE. Even though a few months ago I said that the Briscoe's signing with WWE would be a blessing for all parties as it might be good for the Briscoe's to move to greener pastures. But that doesn't mean that part of me didn't want to see them stay in ROH, because when most think of ROH they think of the Briscoe Brothers.
