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.
