NWA title defense set for ROH TV tapings


An NWA title match has been added to this month's Ring of Honor television tapings.

The NWA has announced that PJ Black will challenge for the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship at ROH's TV tapings at Center Stage in Atlanta, Georgia on Saturday, January 12. Nick Aldis is the NWA Champion and will defend his title against James Storm at the NWA's pop-up event in Clarksville, Tennessee tomorrow (Saturday, January 5).

Black was formerly known as Justin Gabriel in WWE.

It was also announced earlier this week that the NWA is partnering with ROH for the return of the Crockett Cup, which is taking place in Concord, North Carolina on Saturday, April 27. ROH will be holding a 12-team Tag Wars tournament at their Road to G1 Supercard shows in Texas later this month, with the winning team getting a spot in the Crockett Cup and an ROH Tag Team title shot at ROH's 17th Anniversary pay-per-view in March.
