UPDATE: Big Title Changes At NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 11, US Dates Announced

New Japan's biggest event of the year saw some major changes for more than just NJPW.

Adam Cole regained the ROH World Championship over Kyle O'Reilly on the annual January 4 show. The move stirred the rumor mill, as O'Reilly was working without a Ring of Honor contract and has garnered WWE interest. It's Adam Cole's third reign as ROH Champion, becoming the first man ever to reach that feat.
