Kyle Fletcher Emerges as Singles Competitor, Captures ROH Television Championship

In a significant turn of events, Kyle Fletcher, one half of the prominent duo known as Aussie Open, has definitively signaled his arrival on the singles scene with a major championship victory. Fletcher, who for years has been identified primarily as a tag team competitor, recently showcased his singles prowess due to an unforeseen shift in his wrestling career.

Fletcher’s transition from the tag team division was accelerated after his partner, Mark Davis, sustained an injury during AEW’s WrestleDream event. This unfortunate setback for Davis opened an opportunity for Fletcher to step into the spotlight on his own. Fletcher’s potential as a singles competitor had always been there, simmering beneath the surface, but it was the circumstances that ignited his solo ascent.

The apex of Fletcher’s singles push came at ROH Final Battle, a pay-per-view event where he achieved a milestone that many wrestlers dream of, yet few attain. In an impressive showing, Kyle Fletcher emerged victorious against a field of talented competitors including Bryan Keith, Komander, Lee Johnson, and Lee Moriarty, as well as Dalton Castle, to claim the vacant ROH Television Championship. This win marked his very first singles title, a defining moment in his wrestling career.

Beyond the prestige of the ROH Television Championship, this victory represented a personal conquest for Fletcher. In a candid post-match interview, transcribed by Fightful, Fletcher shared his aspirations and his relief at shaking off the “tag team wrestler” moniker. At just 24 years of age, he expressed a desire to prove his mettle not just as a talented young athlete but as one of the premier wrestlers in the world.

He stated, “You know, people have seen me win Tag Team Championships all over the world, but this is literally the first singles championship I have won in my entire career. More than just the incredible lineage of this championship, the reason I wanted to win it so bad is so people could stop calling me a ‘tag team wrestler’. So I could prove that Kyle Fletcher, at 24 years old, is not just ‘good for 24 years old.’ Kyle Fletcher, at 24 years old, is one of the best wrestlers in the world.”

Fletcher continued with a determination in his eyes, acknowledging the challenges that lie ahead. “Now the easy part is done. I am your new Ring of Honor Television Champion. The hard work begins when I have to make this the most important championship in Ring of Honor, in AEW, in the entire frickin’ world. Because heavy lies the head,” he declared.

The wrestling world now turns its gaze to Fletcher, curious to see how he will handle the pressures and expectations that come with being a singles champion. The coming months will be crucial for Fletcher as he endeavors to establish himself as a dominant force within Ring of Honor, and possibly, make a tangible impact on the broader landscape of AEW and the pro wrestling industry. With his recent victory, Kyle Fletcher has undoubtedly set the stage for an enthralling new chapter in his wrestling odyssey.
