Ring of Honor issued the following press release announcing that NWA National champion Colt Cabana will be defending his title against Mark Briscoe at the June 1st event entitled State of the Art. Details and match card below.
It’s obvious that the Briscoes have a problem with the NWA, and since Colt Cabana is the NWA National Champion, that means the Briscoes have a problem with him as well.
The Briscoes are livid about getting disqualified in an NWA-sanctioned match in the Crockett Cup tournament on April 27. The Briscoes weren’t happy with the NWA even before that, as they felt disrespected by the promotion for having to win a qualifying match to gain entry into the tournament.
The team the Briscoes beat in the qualifying match was Jeff Cobb and Willie Mack, who was NWA National Champion at the time. By pinning Mack in that match, Mark Briscoe earned a future shot at the NWA National Title.
On the Crockett Cup show, Cabana defeated Mack to win the championship, so now he will be the one putting the National Title on the line against Mark Briscoe.
Mark Briscoe would love nothing more than to stick it to the NWA by taking the title from Cabana, but that will be easier said than done. Cabana had a strong showing in the New Japan Cup in March, and that momentum carried over into his match against Mack.
Will Mark Briscoe take the NWA National Title with him back to Sandy Fork, Del.? Or will Cabana successfully defend both the championship and the NWA’s honor? Join us live to find out!
