Colt Cabana pulled from tag match at ROH Best in the World

Due to an injury, Colt Cabana won't be able to wrestle at ROH's Best in the World pay-per-view this Friday.

The NWA uploaded a video today where Cabana announced that he won't be able to team with Nick Aldis against The Briscoes at Best in the World. Cabana is the current NWA National Champion, while Aldis holds the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship.

Cabana's replacement will be unveiled on the Best in the World pre-show, which is airing at 8:30 p.m. Eastern time on Friday.

Cabana suffered an injury on June 5 that resulted in a hematoma on his thigh. On June 18, Cabana tweeted that he couldn't bend his leg because of it. He said in today's NWA video that his return to the ring will be way sooner than later.

Cabana & Aldis vs. The Briscoes had been set up for Best in the World when The Briscoes laid out both Cabana and Aldis at ROH's television tapings in Villa Park, Illinois last month.
