Jonathan Gresham crowned undisputed ROH Champion at Supercard of Honor

Gresham defeated Bandido in the show's main event.

Jonathan Gresham defeated Bandido to become the undisputed ROH World Champion in the main event of Supercard of Honor. 

Gresham pinned Bandido with a cradle to earn the undisputed title, then was immediately confronted by Jay Lethal. Sonjay Dutt entered to break the two up, but then joined Lethal in attacking Gresham. Lee Moriarty tried to save, but was taken down by Lethal and Dutt. Gresham and Moriarty were then saved by the former ROH World Champion Samoa Joe, making a surprise return to the promotion. 

Joe's signing to AEW was then announced by ROH and AEW owner Tony Khan on Twitter. Joe will make his AEW debut on Wednesday's Dynamite. 

Gresham officially won the ROH World title at December's Final Battle pay-per-view, which turned out to be the final show under the old ROH regime. Bandido held the ROH title in the leadup to that event, but a positive COVID-19 test left him unable to defend the title at the show. The company then officially stripped him of the title, and Gresham defeated Lethal for the vacant title at Final Battle. 

After never losing the title in the ring, Bandido defended a version of the ROH Championship at Terminus in January, but no longer has a claim to the title after Gresham's win.
