Cody has won his second major championship inside of a month. He defeated Juice Robinson for the IWGP United States Championship last night at NJPW Fighting Spirit Unleashed.

Cody reversed a super-plex into a pinning combination for the 3-count. Jim Ross remarked that it looked as though both competitors had their shoulders down, however. Still, the referee awarded the match and the title to Cody.

He wasn’t finished there, however. Cody would come out following the night’s main event and interject himself into a match between Omega and Ibushi. He’ll now face Kota Ibushi and Kenny Omega in a triple threat match at King of Pro Wrestling. It will be just the second triple threat match for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship in history.

Cody becomes the 4th wrestler to hold the belt. Kenny Omega won the inaugural championship on night 2 NJPW’s trip to Long Beach last year, July 2nd, 2017.

Jay White then defeated Omega at the New Beginning in Sapporo back in February. White dropped the belt to Juice at the G1 Special in San Fransico. Now Cody has defeated Juice to earn him his second belt currently in his possession.
Cody’s Recent Championship Matches

Cody’s two title victories in September help to erase the memory of a summer’s worth of losses in big matches for him. He lost an IWGP Heavyweight Championship match to Omega at the G1 Special in San Fransico. He then dropped two straight ROH World Championship matches back in June.

Finally, at All In, Cody was able to defeat Nick Aldis to win the NWA World Heavyweight Championship. It is Cody’s second world title, having won the ROH World Championship previously. Now, he adds the IWGP United States titles to his collection as well.
