Taichi Wins NEVER Openweight Championship

Taichi defeated Jeff Cobb with the Black Mephisto after a long matchup that was much better than Taichi’s usual output. This is Taichi’s second run as NEVER Champion after his first one was cut short at 47 days in late 2018.  Cobb continues to stay in the malaise of the NEVER Openweight division as he has challenged for this title a few times since joining ROH. Cobb continues to hold the ROH TV Title.
