Fans in Kent, Was., will have the pleasure of witnessing the first-ever singles match between two of ROH’s best all-around competitors, Jeff Cobb and LifeBlood’s Mark Haskins, when ROH makes its Pacific Northwest debut at State of the Art, an international television taping, on June 1.
Cobb saw his 222-day reign as ROH World Television Champion come to an end on May 9 at War of the Worlds in Toronto when Shane Taylor won the title in a Four Corner Survival Match. Cobb was not involved in the decision, so he still has not been pinned or forced to submit since making his ROH in-ring debut last September.
Since Cobb has yet to lose in singles competition in ROH, he has to be considered the favorite anytime he steps into the ring, but Haskins has proved that he is capable of going toe-to-toe with anyone. Haskins came within an eyelash of defeating Matt Taven for the ROH World Championship at War of the Worlds in Grand Rapids, Mich., on May 11. In fact, Haskins might be the champion today had it not been for interference from Bully Ray.
Can Cobb continue his undefeated streak? Or will Haskins score his biggest victory in ROH to date? Join us live to find out!
