Chris Jericho becomes ROH World Champion at AEW Dynamite Grand Slam

For the first time in his career, Chris Jericho has won a championship under the Ring of Honor banner

New ROH World Champion crowned.

Kicking off AEW Dynamite Grand Slam at Arthur Ashe Stadium was the ROH World Championship match that saw Claudio Castagnoli put the belt on the line against Chris Jericho.

Former Ring of Honor owner Cary Silkin was ringside for the match and took a few slaps to the face from Jericho while on the outside. The final sequence of the match saw Jericho flip Claudio over and on the other side was referee Aubrey Edwards. Claudio stopped himself from running into Edwards and as she had her head turned, Jericho gave Claudio a low blow and followed up with the ‘Judas Effect’ to become champion.

Throughout his career, Jericho has held titles in AEW, ECW, CMLL, NJPW, WCW, WWE and now ROH.
