Dalton Castle... CHAMPION

Despite being one of the more popular acts in Ring of Honor (ROH) for quite some time, Dalton Castle has never held one of the Sinclair Broadcasting-owned promotion’s titles.

Until Best in the World 2017.

On June 23 in Lowell, Massachusetts, the Party Peacock became the Party Peacock CHAMPION. With the aid of his trusty Boys (who become to my knowledge the first nameless characters to hold gold in a major wrestling company), Castle defeated Bully Ray & The Briscoes to claim the 6-Man Tag Championship.

After an epic entrance...

... and a fun back-and-forth match that featured some great Bully/Dalton interactions...

... the match turned because Jay was too fixated on beating up the Boys and Bully had to go try to pull him away (and if you know enough about Jay Briscoe’s past statements and Dalton and his valets/partners’ characters, this was both unsurprising and a little uncomfortable):

So Castle was able to pin Mark and the Peacock has a reason to party!

The new champ has known he was championship material for a long time - that knowledge has lived inside him like shingles, you see:

Congrats Planet Peacock!
