He has also won many other titles in previous promotions including the ROH Pure Championship and ROH World Championship in Ring of Honor. However, it was in Total Nonstop Action Wrestling that he made the most name for himself having taken home many tiles such as the TNA Television Championship and TNA World Heavyweight Championship.
