Ring of Honor issued the following:
The Ring of Honor Pure Championship is back! Starting the weekend of September 12, 16 of the best Pure wrestlers in the world will compete to crown the first ROH Pure Champion since 2006!
The title, with a lineage that includes future Hall of Famers AJ Styles, Samoa Joe, Bryan Danielson, Nigel McGuinness, and Jay Lethal, will be contested under Pure Rules where each competitor gets only three rope breaks before all pins and submissions are counted in the ring and one closed fist to the face before the competitor is disqualified.
