NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship To Be Defended In Vegas

In front of the largest independent wrestling crowd in the United States since 1993, “The American Nightmare” Cody fulfilled his destiny, capturing the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Championship at All In. The win meant that Cody captured the same Ten Pounds of Gold his father Dusty Rhodes had held three times, becoming the first father-son duo to complete that feat.

After a historic announcement by NWA Owner and Chairman Billy Corgan via his Instagram, Cody was given clearance to defend his newly-won championship at the discretion of the NWA Board in organizations such as Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro-Wrestling.

During a recent interview, Cody confirmed he would be defending his championship and the first defense will come in Las Vegas when he takes on an international star making his return to ROH after a three year absence!

MAIN EVENT
NWA WORLDS HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP
NWA WORLDS HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION “THE AMERICAN NIGHTMARE” CODY vs. WILLIE MACK

Willie Mack returns to Ring of Honor after a just-over-three-year absence and he has his sights set on gold! A Championship Wrestling From Hollywood stalwart who has wins over former ROH Triple Crown Champion Roderick Strong, all-time ROH great Chris Hero, and former ROH World Champion Michael Elgin, Mack has maintained his status as one of the best independent wrestlers in the world.

Mack will get the first crack at the newly-minted NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion and, if his previous wins are any indication, he has the tools to beat the former ROH World Champion! With All In in the rearview window, one-third of the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Champions Cody now has two championships to defend and has to take on Juice Robinson for the IWGP United States Championship just one night later.

In sports, this bout feels like a trap game – Cody proved over the summer that he could keep up with the demands of an international schedule but along the way, showed the heavy schedule made him more vulnerable. Wedged in between a Pay Per View match the night before against Okada and CHAOS and a championship opportunity the night after, Mack may be facing Cody at the perfect time to dethrone the Champ and leave Vegas the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion!

Who will leave Las Vegas with the Championship around their waist? Join us LIVE in Vegas to find out before anyone else!

Death Before Dishonor returns to Las Vegas, the Fight Capital of the World, LIVE on Pay Per View and for HonorClub VIP on Friday September 28 at 9 PM ET/6 PM PT and returns the next night for an International Television Taping with all of your favorite ROH stars! Championships will be decided and feuds ended and YOU can watch it all LIVE!
