Last December Ring of Honor shocked the world when Dalton Castle defeated Cody to gain the Ring of Honor World title. Now don't get me wrong Castle had a ton of momentum and it seemed like he finally hit his stride as a top flight competitor. But it was still a shock to see really the only true gimmick wrestler in the sport gain the top prize in a known American promotion. However, as everyone knew his run had to come to an end and that happened last weekend when Jay Lethal became the new World Champion.
In the past Jay was not only the World Champion, but at the time was also the face of the company having just held the Television title for over year and holding both titles at the same time. It has been a while since the last time we saw Lethal in the top spot with ROH and though I don't think it's possible for him to have gotten better it will be interesting to see if this run will be half as good as his last. Take a look at the match below:
