Chris Jericho Wins ROH Championship at AEW Grand Slam Dynamite

Chris Jericho defeated Claudio Castagnoli to win the ROH Championship at AEW Grand Slam Dynamite. Jericho pinned Castagnoli after a Judas Effect, but it was a low blow while Aubrey Edwards' back was turned that really won the match. Jericho was the inaugural AEW Champion and used his star power to help build the company. Could Jericho's victory mean we could soon see an ROH TV deal that would allow Jericho to try to repeat that performance? Or will he simply use it to further his heelish "sports entertainer" persona by representing the antithesis of everything ROH stands for? Or maybe both?

About Jude Terror

A prophecy claims that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events. Unfortunately, nobody can tell when the comics industry has reached its "darkest days" because it somehow keeps finding new lows to sink to. No matter! Jude Terror stands vigilant, bringing the snarkiest of comic book and pro wrestling clickbait to the undeserving readers of Bleeding Cool.
