Crockett Cup Qualifier Announced For ROH Taping

Ring of Honor has announced that the ROH tag champion Briscoes brothers will be taking on Willie Mack & Jeff Cobb at the tapings next weekend in Las Vegas following ROH’s 17th anniversary show. Check out the press release below.

On March 16, the night after ROH’s big 17th Anniversary pay-per-view at Sam’s Town Live in Las Vegas, The Best Wrestling on the Planet returns to the venue for a pivotal international television taping.

What will the fallout be from the pay-per-view? And how will the events of 17th Anniversary weekend impact the historic G1 Supercard at sold-out Madison Square Garden on April 6? Join us LIVE in Sin City to find out!

Just signed for the March 16 show is a qualifying match for next month’s Crockett Cup between ROH World Tag Team Champions Jay and Mark Briscoe and the team of ROH World Television Champion Jeff Cobb and NWA National Champion Willie Mack.

The Crockett Cup tag team tournament, co-promoted by the NWA and ROH, is back for the first time since 1988 and takes place on April 27 at Cabarrus Arena in Concord, NC. One team from ROH has already qualified for the tournament: Villain Enterprises’ PCO and Brody King, who earned a spot by winning Tag Wars.

The Briscoes are undoubtedly the greatest tag team of all time in ROH, and Dem Boys from Sandy Fork, Del., also have entered the conversation when discussing the best tag teams in pro wrestling history. Having won the ROH World Tag Team Titles 10 times in addition to New Japan Pro-Wrestling’s IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Titles, the Briscoes are now looking to place their names alongside The Road Warriors, Dusty Rhodes and Nikita Koloff, and Sting and Lex Luger as winners of the Crockett Cup.

But to get that opportunity they’ll first have to get past Cobb and Mack. The ROH World Television Champion and NWA National Champion have teamed together a few times over the years and are undefeated as a duo. In their most recent match as a team, Cobb and Mack defeated Silas Young and Shane Taylor by disqualification in January at Road to G1 Supercard in San Antonio.

Will the Briscoes dispose of Cobb and Mack to put themselves in position to add yet another accolade to their incredible careers? Or will Cobb and Mack surprise the Briscoes and gain a berth in the Crockett Cup at their expense?
