The Ring of Honor (ROH) World Championship is a professional wrestling world championship in Ring of Honor. The championship has also been through other companies in cooperation with ROH through the Global Professional Wrestling Alliance (GPWA), the governing body of many independent wrestling promotions throughout the United States and Japan. The current Ring of Honor World championship belt was designed and crafted by All Star Championship Belts.

History

Low Ki defeated Spanky, Christopher Daniels and Doug Williams in a 60 minute Iron Man Match to become the first ROH Champion at Crowning a Champion on July 27, 2002.

Samoa Joe had the longest title reign to date when he held the belt for 22 months. During his reign, ROH held a cross-promotional show with Frontier Wrestling Alliance in the United Kingdom on May 17, 2003 called Frontiers of Honor. At that show, Joe turned the title into the ROH World Championship when he defended it against The Zebra Kid. Since then the title has been defended in Germany, Canada, Switzerland, Austria, Mexico and Japan.

On August 12, 2006, the ROH Pure Championship was unified with the ROH World Championship after ROH Pure Champion Nigel McGuinness lost to ROH World Champion Bryan Danielson in Liverpool, England in a title unification match. The match was contested under pure wrestling rules, with the stipulation that both championships could be lost by disqualification or count out.

In 2010 the title belt, along with the ROH World Tag Team Championships, was redesigned. The new belt has an eagle with its wings spread over a picture of the world with an ROH logo on the top. This design also includes various flags on different countries. In December 2012, a new design (as featured above) was introduced at the Final Battle iPPV.

Current champion

Adam Cole is the current champion in his second reign. He defeated Jay Lethal at ROH Death Before Dishonor XIV in Las Vegas.
