Three for one. Titles are the easiest concept in all of wrestling as anyone can get it: someone, either a singles wrestler or a tag team, hold a championship and another wrestler/wrestlers try to take them. There are several ways you can go with that idea, but ultimately it is about getting two people into a ring with a title on the line. That was certainly case over the weekend.
There were three title changes at Ring of Honor’s Best In The World pay per view over the weekend. First of all, Dragon Lee defeated Tony Deppen to regain the Television Title. Lee had held the title for a year before having to miss a title defense due to an injury. King lost the title to Tracy Williams, who went on to lose it to Deppen, who held the title for seventy four days.
Next up, Homicide and Chris Dickinson of Violence Unlimited won the Tag Team Titles by defeating Jonathan Gresham and Rhett Titus of the Foundation in a Fight Without Honor. Titus was substituting for Jay Lethal, who had lost a match to Brody King earlier in the show. Finally, Bandido defeated Rush to become the new Ring of Honor World Champion. This ends Rush’s second reign with the title at 499 days, which is the third longest reign in history.
It was a big night. Check out how all of the changes went down:
Opinion: They certainly did not waste time with this show as you do not see that many title changes on every show. Ring of Honor needed to have a big one like this as a way to clear almost everything out from their hiatus. Yes Rush held the title for nearly five hundred days, but that is a bit inflated by not defending it for six months. Now things have been given a fresh start and that makes it all the more interesting.
Which change means the most? Who will hold their title the longest? Let us know in the comments below.
