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

Beer City Bruiser
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.

Rumor Killer On MLW Trying To Sign CMLL’s Dragon Lee

Dragon Lee
Is MLW trying to sign CMLL’s Dragon Lee?

As we noted last week, Ring Of Honor has signed CMLL’s Rush to an exclusive contract, a move that is now preventing him from his scheduled appearance for Major League Wrestling’s WrestleMania week event (read the full story here).

Over the weekend, it was reported MLW was in a “bidding war” to sign another CMLL star, Dragon Lee, who is the younger brother of Rush. Reportedly, Dragon Lee is on the verge of signing with ROH, however we have some clarification regarding his possible talks with MLW.

According to Court Bauer, MLW’s CEO, the company was never in discussions with Dragon Lee on a deal. It’s being said that while CMLL informed MLW they would still be able to work with some of their talents, Bauer decided against it after what went down with Rush, feeling that were he to promote a CMLL star and then have said star removed due to CMLL’s relationship with ROH would not be good for MLW.

Additionally, PWInsider has noted that MLW will continue to use lucha libre performers, but only those who are independent workers or those who are associated with AAA. As for Dragon Lee signing with Ring Of Honor, at this time nothing has been confirmed.
