Despite proclaiming that he was retiring from pro wrestling, ACH has returned to the independent scene in much the same way that he left it. After defeating Chip Day in the main event at Atlanta Wrestling Entertainment’s Show of the Year last night, he has won the Georgia Wrestling Crown for the second year in a row.
The video below captures the championship celebration, featuring Joe Black handing ACH the belt after the match. Joe is the man ACH beat in 2018 to win the title before immediately vacating it. The ring then fills with other AWE wrestlers, who comment on the match before letting ACH have his say.
Once he gets the mic, the former NXT star gets on his knees and thanks himself before proclaiming himself as the “best in the world.” “People have doubted me forever. I have felt like the wicked stepchild that nobody appreciates in pro wrestling. But today, I appreciate me, my homies appreciate me, and you all can kiss my as$”
Certainly the type of performance you’d expect from such an outspoken performer. Whether it is a performance or something more, you can expect ACH to continue to pop up throughout 2020 where you least expect him.
