Former WWE star Cody Rhodes defeated Christopher Daniels at last night’s ROH Best in the World PPV in Lowell, Massachusetts to become the new ROH Champion.
Rhodes, who left WWE last March, debuted for Ring of Honor last December and later joined the very popular Bullet Club group as a prominent member.
