Jay and Mark Briscoe will remain with Ring of Honor, Wrestling News World can confirm.

We're told there was interest from WWE but it came down to money. Jay and Mark essentially were going to make less money going down to NXT than what they would make by re-signing with ROH.

While it's true ROH has been in a tighter financial situation, they consider the Briscoes a priority and didn't want to lose them. As a result, a significant offer was made and WWE was not willing to match.

We're told WWE not signing the Briscoes did not have anything to do Jay Briscoe's homophobic Tweets from a couple years ago. That was an old story and didn't play into recent interest.

ROH is expected to announce the Briscoe brothers have re-signed some time this week.
