Cody's first NWA title defense set for ROH TV tapings


Cody Rhodes' first NWA title defense will be taking place in Ring of Honor.

While appearing for Championship Wrestling from Hollywood yesterday, Cody announced that he'll be defending the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship against Willie Mack at ROH's television tapings in Las Vegas, Nevada on September 29.

The Orleans Arena in Las Vegas will host ROH's Death Before Dishonor pay-per-view on September 28 and the next day's post-PPV tapings.

Cody won the NWA title from Nick Aldis at All In earlier this month, and Aldis will be getting his rematch in the main event of the NWA's 70th Anniversary Show in Nashville, Tennessee on October 21. Aldis defeated Doug Williams at Wrestling MediaCon in Manchester, England on September 9 to be confirmed as Cody's challenger for the Anniversary event.

The NWA title was last defended in ROH during the build to All In, with Aldis retaining against Flip Gordon in July.
