The battle between Ring of Honor’s Briscoe Brothers and the National Wrestling Alliance has been raging for quite awhile now, picking up steam when the record-setting tag team veterans caused a scene and brutally assaulted several people at the Crockett Cup earlier this year.
A tag team match pitting The Briscoes against NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion Nick Aldis and NWA National Champion Colt Cabana was originally scheduled for tonight’s ROH Best in the World pay-per-view, but an unfortunate injury took “Boom Boom” Cabana out of action, requiring a fill-in to be named during the pre-show.
We can now officially confirm that Aldis’ partner for tonight’s big tag team match will be none other former Impact Wrestling World Champion Eli Drake! Dummy, yeah!
Drake made a surprise visit to the ring during the Best in the World pre-show, revealing that he is the newest NWA acquisition. “The Cowboy” James Storm was also involved in the segment, but as of now is not advertised to appear on the PPV.
