ROH World Champion Claudio Castagnoli Retains

Ring of Honor Champion Claudio Castagnoli of The Blackpool Combat Club defeated FTR's Dax Harwood to retain the title.  

This was a great paring of two extremely talented technical wrestlers. Dax himself already a champion, holding one-half of the AAA and Ring of Honor Tag Team Titles, demonstrated again that he is also an excellent singles competitor. 

Claudio also showed that after 20+ years in the industry, he's still going strong.   Both men tried to take down the other with a flurry of suplexes, piledrivers, and powerbombs.  

Ultimately, Dax tapped out after Claudio locked in a sharpshooter, his own finishing move.  Quite the ending to an excellent bout. 

After the match, William Regal, manager of The Blackpool Combat Club, acknowledged Dax and his tremendous efforts in this match.
