The title isn’t done yet. One of the bigger stories of the year has been the demise of Ring of Honor, as the company seems like it might be completely done following this month’s Final Battle event. At the very least, the company is going into hiatus for the next several months, but it seems that a few things might be continuing while everything else is away full time.
Game Changer Wrestling has announced that new Ring of Honor World Champion Jonathan Gresham will be defending his title against AJ Gray at their December 17 Blood on the Hills event. The match will take place under Pure Rules, which Gresham said would be the case for all of his title defenses after winning the title at Final Battle. There is no word on how frequently Gresham will be defending the title in other promotions.
The JON GRESHAM vs AJ GRAY match at #GCWBlood will now be for the ROH World Championship and will be contested under Pure Rules!

You might need to get used to Gresham. Check out his time in Ring of Honor:
Opinion: This is a good sign for Ring of Honor’s future and that is a nice thing to see. While it might not be in the best place at the moment, Ring of Honor is a far bigger and more important promotion than Game Changer Wrestling so this should be a solid boost. I’m not sure how long the Ring of Honor World Title is going to be around, but a little something like this is better than nothing.
What does this mean for the title? How will Gresham do as champion? Let us know in the comments below.
