Coming off the success of James Ellsworth’s challenge for the “Ten Pounds of Gold” (over 200K views on their YouTube channel, triple the next most popular video), the NWA is going with another name familiar to most wrestling fans for Nick Aldis next World’s Heavyweight title defense.
Ring of Honor color commentator, podcast innovator, “pipe bomb” shout out recipient and former NWA champ Colt Cabana has been revealed as another of the 20 men will challenge the current titleholder as part of The Aldis Crusade gimmick they’re currently running across partner promotions.
They’re also putting on the match in an area of the world which doesn’t host a lot of western wrestling shows, as Aldis vs. Cabana will take place in Shanghai, China this April.
See the reveal of “Boom Boom” as a challenger, as well as hear some comments from Cabana about joining Ellsworth and other former champs and challengers like Tommy Dreamer as rivals for the former Magnus, in the above video.
And let us know your thoughts on Colt vs. Aldis as a way to continue the new NWA’s momentum below, Cagesiders.
