The Ring of Honor Television Championship has been unpurified.
At ROH's 19th Anniversary Show, "Hot Sauce" Tracy Williams won the belt from Kenny King, who was competing on behalf of the actual titleholder, Dragon Lee, who was absent with a broken eardrum. Williams and Rhett Titus also won the World Tag Team Titles on that night.
Following RUSH and Jay Lethal's main event match, Brody King and unveiled his new stable, Violence Unlimited, featuring himself, Homicide, Chris Dickinson, and Tony Deppen. Their belief is that there is violence in honor.
Deppen joined the group because he was tired of being attacked, having suffered a beatdown at the hands of La Faccion Ingobernable after defeating Kenny King a couple of weeks prior. At episode #502 of Ring of Honor, Deppen got a chance to face Williams for his belt. The Violence Unlimited member emerged victoriously, stealing a title away from The Foundation.
Deppen shared the news of his victory online, even clarifying that although he is a Ring of Honor Champion, he remains an independent wrestler.
