Ring of Honor Final Battle had three thrilling title changes including its main event between defending ROH World Champion Rush and PCO.

In a shocking victory, veteran wrestler PCO won the Ring of Honor World Championship by defeating Rush. The two put each other through hell as Rush even broke a door over PCO’s head, but there was no way of putting the “Inhuman” down after some help from Destro. The end came after PCO hit a moonsault onto Rush through a table.

Here’s our full play-by-play:

Riccaboni and Coleman stress that there aren’t any rules in this match. PCO and RUSH stare each other down. Shoulder blocks, chops and forearms don’t affect either man. A clothesline sends RUSH to the outside. RUSH throws a chair at PCO. The champion whips PCO with a camera cord. RUSH hits a dropkick and a pose. He stomps on PCO and kicks him in the face.

The champion suplexes PCO onto a table. RUSH spits on a hearse on the stage. (PCO drove the hearse to the arena.) Both men exchange chops.

RUSH mocks the crowd again. RUSH sends PCO tumbling off the stage and onto stacked parts of the barricade. The champion continues to taunt and mock the crowd. RUSH watches while Destro comes to PCO’s aid; he struggles to lift the hood of the hearse. He electrifies PCO with wires from the car. The French Frankenstein comes alive and chokeslams RUSH onto  the hood of the hearse. PCO hits a leg drop while RUSH is sprawled on the hood. RUSH sends PCO tumbling off the car.
