This past weekend in Chicago at the Ring of Honor & CMLL Global Wars Espectacular, in perhaps the final NWA affiliated match in ROH for some time, the National Wrestling Alliance World Tag Team titles changed hands, as the tandem of Royce Isaacs and Thomas Latimer defeated Villain Enterprises’ PCO & Brody King to become the 148th Tag Team Champions in the titles’ long history.

The ad hoc tandem of Isaacs & Lattimer gained entry into the 2019 edition of the Crockett Cup by winning a Battle Royal at the event’s start, and then defeated the team of Flip Gordon & Bandido to advance to the finals, where they were beaten by Villain Enterprises for the vacant NWA World Tag Team Championships.
Royce Isaacs is an emerging star from the West Coast, best known as being part of the One Percent alongside Jorel Nelson, who captured the DEFY and Future Stars of Wrestling (FSW) Tag Team titles last year. Isaacs is also a regular with Championship Wrestling From Hollywood, where he’s a former UWN Television Champion.
Thomas Latimer is best known by the ring name Bram, from his four year run with IMPACT Wrestling where he was a former TNA King of the Mountain Champion and member of Death Crew Council with “Cowboy” James Storm and Eddie Kingston. The UK native has remained a fixture on the UK indie scene for the past few years before becoming a part of the NWA earlier this year.
With all of the NWA titles now around the waist of NWA roster members – Nick Aldis as NWA World’s Heavyweight Champion, Allysin Kay as the NWA Women’s World Champion, and “Cowboy” James Storm as the NWA National Heavyweight Champion – NWA is prepping for their return to weekly television, with tapings set for the end of September in Atlanta, Georgia.
