ROH: Brody King Re-Signs, Pure Championship Returning

Brody King Re-Signs

Brody King, who debuted with Ring of Honor in December 2018, has signed a new contract with the company.

During his time in ROH, he’s won the Tag Team Championship with PCO and the Six Man Tag Team Championship with PCO and Marty Scurll.

Pure Championship

ROH announced that they’re bringing back the Pure Championship, which was last in the company in 2006 when then-ROH World Champion Bryan Danielson (Daniel Bryan) defeated Nigel McGuinness to unify the titles.

ROH will hold a two night tournament called “Pure Excellence” on Friday, April 10 in Columbus, Ohio and Saturday, April 11 in Pittsburgh, PA.

ROH explains “Pure rules” as the following:

In matches contested under Pure rules, closed-fist punches were illegal, and each competitor was allowed three rope breaks to stop submission holds and pinfalls during the match; after that, pinfalls and submission holds on or under the ropes would be legal.

AJ Styles defeated CM Punk in a tournament to become the first Pure Champion in 2004. Samoa Joe, Nigel McGuinness and Jay Lethal are among those who also held the title.
