It was a mixed night for the champions at Ring Of Honor Best In The World as the company saw several new champions crowned, including a new Ring Of Honor World Champion.
In the main event of the pay-per-view event, Bandido defeated his compatriot La Facción Ingobernable’s Rush to claim his first-ever reign as Ring Of Honor World Champion. By defeating Rush, Bandido ended his reign as champion at an astonishing 498 days, which is the second-longest reign in company history.
Earlier in the night at Best In The World, the ROH Tag Team Championship was also on the line as Jonathan Gresham and Rhett Titus defended their belts against Violence Unlimited – Chris Dickinson and Homicide. This was Gresham’s second match of the night as he had also successfully defended his Ring Of Honor Pure Championship against Mike Bennett. The double duty proved to be too much as Homicide floored Gresham with 187 to claim the tag title for himself and Dickinson.
The Ring Of Honor Television Title also changed hands at Best In The World as Tony Deppen was defeated by Dragon Lee. Lee finished Deppen off with his running knee for the pinfall to begin his second reign as ROH Television Champion.
The ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Title was also on the line as Shane Taylor Promotions defeated the team of Dalton Castle, Eli Ipsom, and Dak Draper to retain the belts. Also at Best In The Word #DemBoys, The Briscoes put their differences aside after their fight on the farm to defeat the team of Brian Johnson and PJ Black. EC3 continued to control his narrative as he defeated Flip Gordon in one-on-one action.
The show made headlines when Chelsea Green debuted for the promotion, being revealed as one of the women taking part in the tournament to crown the first-ever Ring Of Honor Women’s World Champion.
