Rhett Titus Talks ROH Popularity After Final Battle, Winning ROH TV Title

Rhett Titus made his ROH debut in 2006 and despite wrestling over 350 matches for the promotion, didn't win singles gold until Final Battle.

At ROH Final Battle, Titus won the ROH Television Title in a four-way bout, defeating Dalton Castle, Silas Young, and Joe Hendry.

Appearing on Busted Open Radio, Titus called his victory the best moment of his ROH career.

"This past Saturday had to be the culmination of all those moments. Heading into the pay-per-view, I had no clue I was winning the championship. Nobody smartened me up, it was just another day in the office. All of a sudden, I got the word and was like, 'oh my gosh.' I didn't want to get booed out of the building. When it comes to wrestling, I always think the worst thing possible, as most wrestlers do. To win the championship and have the crowd erupt and everyone chanting 'you deserve it,' I was like, 'this is what dreams are made of.' I couldn't have planned it. That has to take the cake as my all-time favorite moment in Ring of Honor history," he said.

With Final Battle in the rearview mirror, ROH will now go on hiatus with plans to return in April for Supercard of Honor.

Speaking about ROH's potential return, Rhett said, "The cool thing about Ring of Honor taking this break is, compared to when ECW shutdown, at least we had some time beforehand to really take it all in and realize that this is going to be the last show for quite awhile. Hopefully, in April, we come back and come back stronger than ever because right now, Ring of Honor's popularity is back at an all-time high. There is a lot of buzz coming off the show and hopefully, come April, we're able to ride some of that momentum."

While Titus has been a mainstay in ROH, he has worked various Independents throughout the years and hopes to continue that, bringing the ROH TV TItle with him.

"I think one of the main goals, not only for myself but for The Foundation is to stay as a unit and take our sport back because wrestling kind of lost its way," Titus said when asked about his 2022 goals. "You turn on a lot of popular wrestling and see 'dive, dive, dive,' and everyone flying around, but you don't get wrestling. I want to put wrestling back in wrestling, that's one of my main goals. For myself personally, I've been a regular on Beyond Wrestling Uncharted Territory and have a few more (dates) finishing up on New Year's Eve. I just debuted on NWA, had a great time there, hopefully, I'm back with the NWA, they are a great company. As far as other companies, I'm open to anything and I want do everything. I want to take my Television Title and defend it against some of the best wrestlers in the world."

Rhett wrestled Austin Aries at NWA Hard Times 2, losing the bout as Aries moved on in the NWA World Junior Heavyweight Tournament.
