New NWA National Heavyweight Champion Crowned at ROH TV Taping


There is a new NWA National Heavyweight Champion coming out of Saturday night’s Ring of Honor television taping at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, PA.

“The Cowboy” James Storm defeated Colt Cabana in a quick match this weekend to steal the title, after appearing at Friday night’s ROH Best in the World pay-per-view, where he sat in on commentary and mixed it up with another new member of the National Wrestling Alliance (and another former Impact World Champion)… Eli Drake!

This is an interesting situation as Cabana was just getting started in his reign as National Champion, which was brought back from the dead last October. The beloved Chicago star won the title from Willie Mack at the Crockett Cup at the end of April, but in recent weeks was taken out of action with an injury.
