Cody Rhodes Wins ROH World Championship at Best in the World 2017


At Ring of Honor’s Best in the World PPB, Cody Rhodes defeated Christopher Daniels to become the new ROH World Champion.

Big news coming out of Lowell, Massachusetts as Cody Rhodes was able to capture the Ring of Honor World Championship when he defeated Christopher Daniels at Best in World 2017. The match itself was a pretty good one. Daniels had Cody on the ropes early and even busted open his lip in the first few moments of the match.

Once Cody was able to level the playing field, he called upon his fellow Bullet Club member, The Villain, Marty Scurll down to the ring with a steel chair. However, Scurll was stopped in his tracks when Daniels’ long-time tag team partner, Frankie Kazarian made the save and fought Scurll to the backstage area.

In the ending sequence of the match, Cody hit Daniels with CrossRhodes for a near fall. Daniels was able to get back on the offensive and went for the Best Moonsault Ever but Cody moved out of the way. A few moments later, Cody was able to hit CrossRhodes for a second time to pick up the victory and the ROH World Championship.

After the match, the previously mention Scurll and The Young Bucks made their way to the ring to celebrate with their Bullet Club Brethren. Obviously, this a huge accomplishment for Cody Rhodes as he joins the list of wrestlers like Samoa Joe, Austin Aries, CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens Roderick Strong and Adam Cole to hold ROH World Championship.

It should be noted that during the match Cody hit Daniels with The Rainmaker, made famous by the IWPG Heavyweight Champion Kazuchika Okada. Cody will be challenging Okada for that very same IWPG Heavyweight Title at NJPW’s G1 Special next Saturday on July 1.

Cody has made it no secret that he fully intends on capturing both the ROH World Championship and the IWGP Heavyweight Championship.
