The ROH World Championship is a professional wrestling world championship owned by the Ring of Honor (ROH) Promotion. Furthermore, matches will be held under ROH’s “Pure Rules.” Earlier today, Ring of Honor revealed the brackets for its upcoming ROH Pure Championship Tournament. Through a new partnership between ROH and CMLL in Mexico, RUSH is meant to be the fresh top star in Ring of Honor. Luckily, there were also noteworthy names to win it at the right time. The following ROH World Champions were either crowned too late or at the right time.

On July 3, 2013, the ROH World Championship was declared vacant for the first time since its inception, when ROH Match Maker Nigel McGuinness stripped then-champion Jay Briscoe of the title after he was sidelined with a storyline injury and would be unable to compete for the foreseeable future.

The championship has also been through other companies in cooperation with ROH through the Global Professional Wrestling Alliance (GPWA), a now-defunct governing body of many independent wrestling promotions throughout the United States and Japan. Ring of Honor talent and staff will follow in-depth health protocols to ensure everyone's safety. RELATED: 10 Backstage Stories About The ROH Championship That We Can’t Believe.
