Jeff Cobb To Challenge For ROH World Title At Best In The World
Jeff Cobb is getting a World title shot at ROH's next pay-per-view.
ROH has announced that Matt Taven will defend his World Championship against Cobb at Best in the World in Baltimore, Maryland on Friday, June 28. The show is taking place at the UMBC Event Center.
Cobb lost the ROH Television Championship to Shane Taylor in a four corner survival match earlier this month, with Taylor pinning Brody King to win the title. In a segment on the ROH TV episode that aired this week, Cobb cut an in-ring promo and talked about never being pinned or submitted in ROH. Cobb said he wasn't out there to ask for his rematch against Taylor, he wanted Taven.
Taven then came out and responded to Cobb, telling him he has no problem defending the title against Cobb anytime or anywhere. Taven teased having the match right then and there, but the segment ended with Taven saying "not tonight" and throwing the microphone at Cobb.
Taven became ROH World Champion by defeating Jay Lethal and Marty Scurll in a triple threat ladder match at G1 Supercard last month.
This is the second match to be announced for Best in the World. Taylor will defend his TV title against Bandido at the PPV.
