Jonathan Gresham Wins Tournament To Become ROH Pure Champion

Jonathan Gresham is your Ring of Honor Pure Champion.

Gresham defeated Tracy Williams in the finals of the tournament, which crowned the first Pure Champion sine 2006. The title was previously held seven times and past winners include A.J. Styles, Jay Lethal, Samoa Joe, Nigel McGuinness, and Bryan Danielson. Clearly Gresham is joining elite company with the win.

What separates the Pure Championship is that it is conducted under a separate ruleset. This includes each wrestler only having three rope breaks to stop holds and pinfalls, there being no closed-fist punches to the face, and a 20-count on the floor.

Check out the victory celebration by Gresham, which included an appearance by Jay Lethal, below:
