ROH Pure Champion Jonathan Gresham continues to prove he is the best pure wrestler in the sport.
Facing his toughest challenge to date in best friend and fellow Foundation member Jay Lethal on the historic 500th episode of “Ring of Honor Wrestling” a couple weeks ago, Gresham pinned the two-time former ROH World Champion for yet another successful title defense of the championship he won in a tournament last fall.
Lethal forced Gresham to use all three of his rope breaks, but “The Octopus” proved resilient and used an innovative headscissors pinning combination out of nowhere to win the match.
Gresham is now 9-0 in matches contested under Pure Rules in ROH.
In the TV episode that aired the week prior to Episode 500, Gresham and Lethal defeated MexiSquad’s Bandido and Flamita in tag team action.
