COMPLETE ROH BEST IN THE WORLD 2015 COVERAGE: WHO WALKED OUT WITH BOTH TITLES?

ROH World Tag Team Title/No DQ Match: The Addiction vs reDRagon

And again we have someone jumping their opponents before the bell, as the Addiction goes after reDRagon and beats them down, then pull a gigantic ladder out from under the ring and bash O'Reilly in the face with it. Fish takes both Daniels and Kazarian out with a dive, then starts whipping both opponents into the barricade. All four men go fighting through the crowd, and since I have a good view of neither the wrestlers or the monitor, I'm a bit limited here in my coverage. I did catch Kazarian getting backdropped off the stage and onto Daniels, and thankfully they head back to the ring so I can see reDRagon hammer the patootie out of Daniels with kicks. Daniels manages to take O'Reilly out with an STO, then hits an Arabian Press to the floor onto Fish. reDRagon fights back and Fish holds up a chair as O'Reilly hits the charging dropkick off the apron onto both members of the Addiction. Daniels gives O'Reilly a uranage onto an unfolded chair as Kazarian takes Fish out, then Daniels drills O'Reilly with another chair before setting the gigantic ladder up in the corner and whipping Fish into it. Daniels accidentally nails Kazarian with a clothesline, O'Reilly fires back with a flurry of offense, takes Kazarian out with a dropkick, and goes to check on Fish. Daniels grabs O'Reilly from behind and whips him into the ladder again, then the Addiction takes a piece of the barricade and sets it up as a platform on the floor. They try and fail to suplex O'Reilly onto it, so Daniels goes for the BME...and O'Reilly catches him in a triangle choke. Kazarian breaks that up, then they take O'Reilly outside the ring and give him the T-Gimmick onto that barricade table thing from before. Fish is finally back in the game as he comes to the rescue of O'Reilly, traps both Addiction members in the corner, and hammers them with kicks. Fish with a leaping kneestrike to Daniels, a powerbomb to Kazarian for 2, and he gets Kazarian in the heel hook. Daniels breaks that up, and reDRagon hit a series of double teams and then suplex Kazarian onto the ladder. Daniels looks like he got dinged on a kneedrop he just took from O'Reilly, but he's okay enough to take a top rope Falcon Arrow suplex from Fish. They hit Chasing The Dragon on Daniels, but Chris Sabin runs out to make the save at 2. Kazarian knocks O'Reilly off the apron, kicks Fish in the ding ding, and they hit their finish for the win.

Winner: The Addiction

Really good match, could have gone either way and kept you guessing until the end. I would guess having the ladder in there means that's the next match they build to in the feud.

It's main event time!

Title For Title: ROH World Champion Jay Briscoe vs ROH TV Champion Jay Lethal

The crowd is divided right down the middle in this one, half cheering for each man. The bell rings and they circle one another for mere seconds before referee Todd Sinclair ejects Donovan Dijack and J. Diesel from ringside. Truth Martini's still there, though, and I don't think it's outside the realm of possibility that he might play into events to take place later in this match. Lethal stalls like crazy and goes outside for a couple of powwows with Truth, but finally gets in the ring and locks up with Briscoe. I have to avoid referring to Jay as the champion since both guys qualify. I also realize I can't refer to either as Jay or you'll have no idea who I'm talking about. Briscoe knocks Lethal to the floor with a shoulderblock, but Lethal is back in and they trade wristlocks. That gets old quick and they resort to trading right hands. Lethal dumps Briscoe to the floor and they fight some more out there, Briscoe whips Lethal into the barricade, but then Lethal tackles Briscoe into the barricade and then does it again for kicks. Now Briscoe sends Lethal into the barricade one more time and starts hammering Lethal with right hands as we see Mama and Papa Lethal in the crowd cheering their son on. They go back inside and Briscoe puts the boots to Lethal, and hammers him with forearms in the corner. Lethal dumps Briscoe out to the floor and takes him out with a dive, then comes back inside and does it again, but Briscoe is up and stops a third attempt with a Cactus clothesline to the floor. Truth grabs Briscoe's ankle from the floor and opens him up so Lethal can come in and nail him from behind. Lethal with a big back suplex for 2, then he shrugs off a couple of punches from Briscoe and flattens him with a clothesline for 2. They trade punches and Briscoe rocks Lethal with a roaring elbow and then a neckbreaker for 2. Lethal goes for the Lethal Injection, but Briscoe catches him and counters to Uncle Slam for 2. Briscoe goes for the Jay Driller, Lethal escapes and hits the Lethal Combination, but Briscoe is out at 2. Lethal slams Briscoe and goes up for Hail To The King, Briscoe goes up and tries to counter to a superplex, Lethal fights him off, Briscoe hits a big dropkick, and Lethal fights him off and hits Hail To The King. Lethal covers and Briscoe kicks out, but Lethal catches him right out of that into the Koji Clutch. Lethal has Briscoe right in the middle of the ring, but Briscoe gets to the ropes and they wind up fighting on the apron. Truth Martini distracts the referee and Lethal low blows Briscoe, but Nigel McGuinness (who had joined Kevin and Steve at the broadcast table) ejects Truth. Briscoe hits a Jay Driller through the timekeeper's table, and we see Mama and Papa Briscoe at ringside cheering THEIR son on as Jay dumps Lethal back inside and covers for 2. Briscoe waits for Lethal to get to his feet and unloads with jabs, Lethal fights back, Briscoe hits him with a hard lariat and covers for 2. Briscoe goes for another Jay Driller, Lethal slips out and tries a superkick, Briscoe dodges and takes Lethal out with another hard clothesline for 2. Lethal springboards out of the corner with the Lethal Injection, follows up with the usual handspring version, and covers Briscoe for a very close 2. Lethal picks Briscoe up and goes for the Jay Driller, Briscoe backdrops out Lethal gets it on the second try, follows up with another Lethal Injection, and covers Briscoe to hand him his first pinfall loss in two and a half years.

Winner and new ROH World Champion: Jay Lethal

Great match, great moment, and real emotion from Lethal as Briscoe gets back to his feet and shakes Lethal's hand before heading to the back to give Lethal his moment. The crowd chants to Lethal that he deserves it, and Nigel gets back in the ring to shake the new champion's hand as the show goes off the air.
