NWA World Heavyweight Championship:
Cody Rhodes (Champion) Vs. Willie Mack
Ring Of Honor TV Tapings
[September 29th, 2018]
After winning the NWA World Heavyweight Championship from Nick Aldis at All In, new champion Cody Rhodes would announce that the first challenger for his title would be international favorite Willie Mack. Having recently made a name for himself in Japan and well-known among fans of Lucha Underground, PWG, and multiple indie promotions, Mack was a popular choice for the challenge which took place at ROH’s TV tapings. Rhodes declared prior to the match that he would be the foil in Mack’s story, but having beaten the odds on multiple occasions, Mack would refuse to let Cody stomp on his parade, vowing to prove to everyone he knew growing up that his promise to become a champion wasn’t a pipe dream.
