Ring Of Honor Reportedly Scrapping Multiple Championships As Part Of Relaunch

Ring Of Honor looks set to jettison several championships when the company returns from its self-imposed hiatus in April according to a new report.

Back in October 2021, Ring Of Honor announced that the company would be going on hiatus with Final Battle in December acting as a final show for the company with a return mooted for April 2022.

Now the company has announced that they will indeed return with Supercard Of Honor that will take place on the 1st of April.

ROH hosted Supercard of Honor annually from 2006 until 2019, traditionally during WWE’s WrestleMania weekend. The 2019 edition of the event was a joint venture with New Japan Pro Wrestling and held under the G1 Supercard name at Madison Square Garden.

Now a report from Bryan Alvarez on Wrestling Observer Live has suggested that Ring Of Honor will be focussing on three titles once they return – meaning some could be falling by the wayside.

Alvarez said that the Ring Of Honor World Championship, the ROH Women’s World Championship, and the ROH Tag Team Title will be the focus and will continue to be defended in other companies such as IMPACT Wrestling and GCW.

This means it looks like the Pure Title, as well as the Six-Man Tag Team Championship and the ROH TV Title, could become dormant as they won’t be defended.

ROH revived the Pure Title in 2020 with the first champion of the new era of the title being noted technician Jonathan Gresham. Current Pure Champion Josh Woods retained the title at Final Battle with a win over Brian Johnson.

Rhett Titus won a Four-Way match at Final Battle to unseat Dalton Castle as ROH Television Champion while the Six-Man Tag belts were won at the same event by The Righteous.
