The Top of the Class Trophy, was a trophy contended between the students of the Ring of Honor Wrestling Academy.


The Top of the Class Trophy was created in November 2005. Davey Andrews, graduate of the first class of the ROH Wrestling Academy, would become the first holder of the trophy after he defeated Derrick Dempsey and Shane Hagadorn at Showdown in Motown. His reign would last less than a month, as he vacated the trophy when it was destroyed by Ricky Reyes.

The last holder is Rhett Titus. He defeated Ernie Osiris at Respect is Earned II on June 7, 2008 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. As of October 25, 2008, Ring of Honor's official website no longer recognizes the Top of the Class Trophy as an official Ring of Honor Title.
