ROH News: Former WWE Creative Team Member Joins ROH Full-Time, Star Leaving?

Ring Of Honor has a new behind-the-scenes hire, but may lose another star!

As we’ve recently noted, Ring Of Honor has been making a point to re-sign as many of its stars as possible with WWE still in a signing craze, MLW looking to lock talents in and the rumored All Elite Wrestling promotion starting up.





Lately, ROH has been able to keep a couple of its stars as reigning Ring Of Honor World Champion Jay Lethal has re-signed (see that story here), while Silas Young just revealed he would be sticking around as well (find that here). As reported by PWInsider, Beer City Bruiser noted this week on Facebook that he has an announcement coming up, as his contract will be expiring on December 31st. It was noted that there was some talk about WWE being interested in Bruiser months back, but no word on anything recently. Additionally, it’s being said that this doesn’t necessarily mean he will be leaving ROH either, as it’s believed some talent who have expiring contracts will keep working without a deal or while one is negotiated.

In other, behind-the-scenes ROH news today, PWInsider is also reporting that the promotion has hired on former WWE creative team member Kevin Eck full-time. While Eck’s exact role moving forward wasn’t specified, he had already been doing work for ROH on their website.

Chairshot Wrestling News Shuffle: Bray Wyatt On Raw, All Out Sold Out, WWE Talent News And More! (6/17/19)

Mike And Maria Re-sign With WWE

Last month in the shuffle, I discussed the news that Mike and Maria Kanellis had expiring contracts with WWE. Many of you discussed their potential jump to AEW on the Chairshot Facebook page. In what many are considering to be a bit of a shock, the couple has reach a long term agreement to re-sign with WWE, according to Pro Wrestling Sheet. No contract terms were disclosed.

Jason’s Take

I am a bit shocked that they re-signed with WWE, and figured a move back to ROH or a jump to AEW seemed logical. While many, including myself, feel that WWE hasn’t done much with the couple, Mike Kanellis did have a substance abuse battle last year in which the company stood by him during his difficult time. Perhaps due to the loyalty the company showed then, and mostly likely a decent wage, were the reasons the couple chose to re-sign. What if Maria re-signed and Mike didn’t?

All Out Sold Out

In what must be considered great news for AEW, the All Out show sold out in less than 15 minuets. According to various outlets, ticket sites for the event have over 70,00 people in online waiting rooms waiting to purchase tickets. The Sears Center in Chicago will hold roughly 12,000 people for this event.

Jason’s Take

It is great that the company has been so successful in ticket sales when WWE is hurting to sell tickets to Stomping Grounds. However, can the company sell out venues week after week for live television ? Not taking any credit away from the company, but many are comparing AEW ticket sales to WWE ticket sales. It is a little tough to be doing that when the company has yet to air a weekly product.

Bray Wyatt On RAW?

One of the most entertaining segments on RAW lately has been the Firefly Funhouse and Bray Wyatt. According to PWInsider,  Wyatt is scheduled to appear on RAW during tonight’s episode.

Jason’s Take

Many agree that Wyatt has been the most entertaining segment of RAW. How they re-debut Wyatt will be key. My hope is is that the company finally does something with Wyatt, as Wyatt is money.

Latest On WWE Talent Exodus

Since the formation of AEW last October, it’s been almost weekly that we hear about someone leaving WWE to jump to AEW. According to Dave Meltzer, many inside WWE are turning down big money deals to potentially jump to AEW.

“They were just in town and everybody wants out. I won’t say everybody because that’s not fair. Roman Reigns doesn’t want out. But the amount of people who have contacted AEW would blow your mind,” Meltzer said. “There are people that are counting down the days. There are guys who have told me, including guys in AEW now, that they cannot believe that they turned the offer down [from WWE] but they did. I know people in WWE right now who are not interested in signing again and they can’t believe they are turning down the money.”

Jason’s Take

Let’s be honest, we are going to hear news of someone wanting to leave WWE daily. AEW isn’t going to, nor are they going to be interested to, sign every ex-WWE star. Many people that I had felt would have left WWE (Daniel Bryan, AJ Styles, Mike and Maria Kanellis) have re-signed with the company. You could make the argument for many of WWE’s stars jumping to AEW in order to add some life to their careers. Wrestling is one of the most unpredictable forms of entertainment as far as determining what talent will head where.
