Bandido defeated Rush to win the ROH World Championship at tonight’s Best in the World pay-per-view event.
The finish of the match had Rush kicking out of the 23-plex and going after Bandido, ripping off the top of his mask. Rush and the referee, Todd Sinclair, started to argue. Bandido took advantage of Rush being distracted and rolled him up to win the championship for the first time. This ends Rush’s second reign with the title which lasted nearly 500 days, dating back to Gateway of Honor back in February of 2020 when he defeated PCO.
After the match, Rush and the rest of La Faccion Ingobernable (Bestia del Ring, Dragon Lee, Kenny King) came out and attacked Bandido. Rush laid him out with the title and dropped it on Bandido’s chest. The show closed with Rush placing his foot on top of Bandido and the title.
Other title changes on the show had Chris Dickinson and Homicide defeating Jonathan Gresham (subbing for Tracy Williams) and Rhett Titus to win the ROH World Tag Team titles and Dragon Lee defeating Tony Deppen to regain the ROH TV title.
