Nick Aldis Finds a Surprise Tag Team Partner for ROH Best in the World


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.
