Chris Jericho defeated Claudio Castagnoli to become the ROH World Championship during tonight’s AEW Dynamite: Grand Slam in Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York City.
Towards the end of the match, Castagnoli put Jericho into his swing and twirled him around the middle of the ring. Jericho then got a bat and swung it at Castagnoli but he caught it. The referee missed a low blow by Jericho and a Judas Effect was enough to knock Castagnoli out and claim the win.
