ROH News: Ring Of Honor Announces New Affiliation With Top Wrestling Schools



In looking to further their reach in developing and bringing in new talent to the company, today Ring Of Honor has announced a new affiliation for the ROH Dojo with The World Famous Monster Factory, Maryland Championship Wrestling, Power Factory and Team 3D Academy (run by WWE Hall Of Famers The Dudley Boyz):

The ROH Dojo is proud to announce its affiliation with four of the top, internationally-recognized wrestling schools in the world. The World Famous Monster Factory, Team 3D Academy, Maryland Championship Wrestling, and the Power Factory will provide a pipeline of talent and well over 150 years combined in professional wrestling among their trainers and lineages.

The World Famous Monster Factory has produced numerous World Champions seen on television since the late 1970s, with Larry Sharpe training some of the day’s top stars before the Monster Factory officially launched in Paulsboro, NJ 1983 under its historic name. With a lineage that includes the Big Show, Sheamus, Bam Bam Bigelow, Tatanka, and King Kong Bundy, ROH alumni like Raven, Cliff Compton, and Sonjay Dutt, and current ROH stars like ROH World Television Champion Punishment Martinez, Coast 2 Coast, and Gabby Ortiz, the Monster Factory, led by Danny Cage, possess one of the longest and most accomplished lineages of alumni of any school in the country.

For 11 years, Bully Ray and brother Devon have owned and operated Team 3D Academy in Kissimmee, FL, providing hands-on training from the most accomplished professional wrestling tag team of all time. Bully and Devon have most recently produced stars like former IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Champions Guerrillas of Destiny, Rob Terry, former Women of Honor star Kenadi Brink, and dozens of other stars that have been seen on television for organizations all across the globe!

Since 1998, Maryland Championship Wrestling in Joppa, MD has served as a training home for some of the fastest-rising stars in professional wrestling. The host of the Shane Shamrock Memorial Cup each year, MCW has turned from one of the top showcases in the world for the brightest independent stars to one of the top producers of blue-chip talent in the world, including former ROH star Lio Rush, WWE star Velveteen Dream, and dozens of stars seen on international television. Head ROH Dojo Trainer Joey from Wrestling has led many of the most recent classes, building on the legacy built by current trainer Dan McDevit.

The Power Factory is the youngest school among the affiliates of the ROH Dojo but its trainers have nearly 40 years combined experience in professional wrestling. Ray “Glacier” Lloyd and QT Marshall lead the Power Factory in Buford, GA, near Atlanta, GA! Lloyd and Marshall have state of the art facilities, as well as strength coaches and dieticians to help you get to the next level and have seen blue-chip prospects like Cody Vance and more appear on international television in the just-under-one year they have been in existence!

These four schools will serve as partners for developing talent that will train in, compete for, and wrestle at the ROH Dojo, working on wrestling, communication, and all other aspects needed to become a ROH star. Keep it locked in to for the latest news on the ROH Dojo and its affiliates!

ROH News: Jay Lethal Re-Signs With Ring Of Honor



Jay Lethal
ROH World Champion Jay Lethal has a new Ring Of Honor contract!

One of the ongoing stories wrestling fans have been following throughout the year is the impending free agency of top stars Cody Rhodes, The Young Bucks, Kenny Omega and Hangman Page, especially as we get closer to their deals expiring (Cody’s already has).

With Cody, The Young Bucks and Page all being top talents for Ring Of Honor that point to being lost, they have now locked down their top titleholder. According to PWInsider, ROH World Champion Jay Lethal has signed a new contract to remain with the promotion, as his current deal would have also expired at the end of 2018. At this time there’s no word on how long the deal is for.

Lethal has spent the last seven years with ROH after a six year stint with TNA/IMPACT Wrestling. The 33-year old is in the midst of his second ROH World Title reign and will defend next against the aforementioned Cody in his final match with the company at Final Battle on December 14th.

Additionally, PWInsider has noted that Ring Of Honor have been diligently working on re-signing a number of stars while also venturing out to find new talents in what’s being called a “seek and sign mode”.
