Cody Rhodes hasn't had much trouble finding success outside of WWE.
Going by simply "Cody" during his Ring of Honor run, he became the ROH World Champion Friday night at the Best in the World PPV, by defeating Christopher Daniels. This ends Daniels' reign at 105 days, the 16th longest reign in ROH history.
You can see an excerpt from our ROH Best in the World coverage below.
Daniels hits a blue thunder bomb for a quick two count before Cody rolls out onto the apron, Daniels going out after him before he teases Angels Wings through the table, but Cody back drops him into the ring. Cody hits a RAINMAKER before mocking Kazuchika Okada, seemingly sending a message before the G1 Climax next month. Cody hits a disaster kick off of the top rope before Daniels comes back, then Cody hits him with a water bottle he got from the crowd before hitting Cross Rhodes for a near fall, then hits it again for the pin and the win.
Winner: Cody Rhodes via pinfall
