It was a busy night. There are a lot of titles to be won in the wrestling industry and some of them have deep histories. It means something when those titles change hands, especially on a show of magnitude. In his case, a lot of the titles had not been defended or even seen in a very long time, making the changes all the more important. That was the case this week in a big way.
There were four new champions crowned at Ring of Honor’s Supercard of Honor 2022 event, which served as the company’s first new event since December 2021. First, Mercedes Martinez defeated Willow Nightingale to become the new Interim Women’s Champion, setting up a unification match with Deonna Purrazzo. Second, FTR defeated the Briscoes to win the Tag Team Titles. Next, Minoru Suzuki took the Television Title from Rhett Titus, followed by Wheeler Yuta becoming the Pure Champion by defeating Josh Woods. The show’s main event saw Jonathan Gresham defeat Bandido to become undisputed World Champion.
Opinion: That is the kind of show you had to expect, with the interesting point being the amount of AEW wrestlers winning championships. That is a little more than one might have expected, but what matters is that Ring of Honor is back in some form. If it is the secondary brand for AEW then so be it, as that is better than having the promotion stay closed forever.
What do you think of the title changes? Which is the most important? Let us know in the comments below.
