For the second time in 48 hours , the ROH World Television Championship has changed hands! In a stunning twist, the same benevolence from Matchmaker Nigel McGuinness that afforded Will Ospreay a title shot in his home country on the first night of the Reach for the Sky Tour cost Ospreay the title on the tour’s final night! “The Villain” Marty Scurll pinned “The Aerial Assassin” to capture the ROH World Television Championship Sunday night in London!
Just 48 hours after defeating Bobby Fish for the ROH World Television Championship in his ROH debut, the “Aerial Assassin” Will Ospreay will defend the championship against long-time rival and countryman “The Villain” Marty Scurll!
For over six months, Bobby Fish defended the Ring of Honor World Television Championship across the globe, accumulating successful title defenses on three continents. The 2016 Survival of the Fittest Winner looked to make it four Friday but ran into the hottest young star in professional wrestling on his home turf. Will Ospreay capitalized on the opportunity of a lifetime, defeating Fish for the ROH World Television Championship in front of his countrymen in his Ring of Honor debut! The “Aerial Assassin” cemented his place among the world’s best when he won the 2016 Best of Super Juniors tournament and his victory against Fish is an exclamation mark on what has been a tremendous 2016.
