Jeff Cobb replacing Adam Brooks at ROH 18th Anniversary PPV


Adam Brooks won't be making his ROH debut at Friday's 18th Anniversary pay-per-view after all.

ROH has announced that -- due to travel issues -- Brooks will no longer be appearing at their 18th Anniversary PPV. Jeff Cobb is replacing Brooks and will face Slex at the show.

It was confirmed last month that Brooks has signed with ROH. Him facing Slex at the Anniversary PPV was going to be a matchup between Australian wrestling standouts.

Slex also recently signed with ROH. He debuted at Free Enterprise last month and has had three matches for the promotion.

ROH wrote that "Cobb, who is willing to take on anyone in any promotion, wants to wear ROH gold around his waist again, and he knows a victory over Slex would strengthen his case for a title shot."

ROH's 18th Anniversary PPV is taking place at Sam's Town Live in Las Vegas, Nevada this Friday. The venue will also host ROH Past vs. Present the next night.

Here's the updated card for the Anniversary PPV:

  • ROH World Champion Rush defending against Mark Haskins
  • ROH Television Champion Dragon Lee defending against Bandido
  • ROH Tag Team Champions Jay Lethal & Jonathan Gresham defending against Villain Enterprises (Marty Scurll & Flip Gordon)
  • The Briscoes vs. Dalton Castle & Joe Hendry
  • Villain Enterprises (PCO & Brody King) vs. Rey Horus & Alex Zayne
  • Dealer's Choice match: Dan Maff vs. Kenny King vs. Shane Taylor vs. Bateman (winner gets a future title shot of his choosing)
  • Jeff Cobb vs. Slex
  • Eli Isom vs. Bully Ray
  • Nicole Savoy vs. Session Moth Martina
