Josh Woods, who has been dominant since resurfacing in ROH recently, takes a big step up in level of competition when he faces the maniacal Mark Briscoe at State of the Art in Portland, Ore., on June 2.
Woods, the 2017 Top Prospect winner and former collegiate wrestling champion, returned to ROH last month after a five-month absence, and it was immediately obvious that he had a renewed focus. Woods made quick work of his opponents in his first two matches back on ROH live events.
Neither of those opponents are even remotely close to the skill and experience level of Mark Briscoe, however.
A 10-time co-holder of the ROH World Tag Team Titles with his brother Jay, Mark Briscoe has had his share of success in singles competition as well. He is scheduled to face NWA National Champion Colt Cabana for the title on June 1 in Kent, Was., so Briscoe could enter his match against Woods as the champion.
Woods, who has a background in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, says he is always “DTF -- down to fight,” and that’s good, because he will definitely be in for a fight when he faces the unpredictable Mark Briscoe.
Will Woods knock off Briscoe in what would be the biggest win of his career? Or will Briscoe bring Woods’ momentum to a screeching halt? Join us live in Portland or streaming live for HonorClub to find out!
