That’s a busy night. Titles are the easiest concept in all of wrestling and they always will be. Anyone can understand the idea of someone with the big shiny belt being the best around and in wrestling, those belts have to be defended. When one of them changes hands, it feels like something special has happened and that was the case again this weekend, multiple times over.
Saturday night, Ring Of Honor made its return to pay per view with Death Before Dishonor. The card featured six title matches, with two title changes taking place. First up, Claudio Castagnoli win the Ring Of Honor World Title from Jonathan Gresham in the show’s opening match. Then, the Righteous lost the Ring Of Honor Six Man Tag Team Titles to Dalton Castle and the Boys, marking Castle and the Boys’ second reign as champions. The Pure Title, the Women’s Title, the Television Title and the Tag Team Titles were all retained.
Opinion: This was quite the eventful night for Ring Of Honor, as having a single title change means something but having back to back title changes made it feel even bigger. Ring Of Honor continues to be in a weird place as they don’t have their own show and have to exist on AEW TV, but at least they had another great show here. Title changes keep the belts meaning something and it worked well here.
What did you think of the show? Which new reign will be a bigger success? Let us know in the comments below.
