Jay Lethal Comments On ROH Stars Leaving Company

Ring Of Honor’s Final Battle PPV is this Friday, and it may be the last time we see a number of stars appear on a ROH pay per view.  The Young Bucks, Cody Rhodes, and Hangman Page are among those whose agreements with Ring Of Honor are set to expire.

Ring of Honor World Champion Jay Lethal spoke with Mike Johnson of PWInsider and commented on ROH is constantly in a rebuilding phase. Throughout the years ROH has churned out top stars who have eventually left and pursued options elsewhere.

Lethal stated  “you don’t try and replace these guys, you just try and add new pieces to the puzzle, and Ring Of Honor has done an exceptional job, and they really never fully exit a rebuilding phase”

Lethal does believe that ROH is going to take a hit after losing stars, but it’s not necessary due to them being the focal point of the organization, but the star power that they had.

Lethal said “If I’m being brutally honest, we are going to take a little hit because those pieces that we are going to lose, it may seem as if the show revolved around them it didn’t, it’s just that they were such big players. Now there is going to be new spots, and Ring of Honor is gonna do what they’ve always done, find some new interesting talent out there who has yet to make their mark on wrestling.”

Lethal also made mention on how if any past stars from ROH wish to come back to the company they would be met with open arms. “There is never any resentment, anyone who has gone and come back, they will be welcome back with open arms., especially by the wrestlers” Lethal stated.

ROH Final Battle is this Friday live on PPV, Fite.tv and Honor Club at 8pm EST.

WWE is moving SmackDown Live to FOX this October, and has a scheduled in-studio talk show on FS1 every Tuesday. One interesting name has come up to co-host the show, CM Punk.

Creative Artists Agency (CAA) represents both CM Punk and WWE. The agency reached out to FOX about having CM Punk co-host the up-coming WWE in-studio show according to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

If accepted, CM Punk would be working for FOX, and not WWE. The Observer speculated that WWE would absolutely hate this idea.  So far no actual negotiations between FOX and CAA have taken place, all that is known is that an agent from the company reached out to FOX regarding the FS1 show.

WWE’s new in-studio show on FS1 is scheduled to begin airing this fall.

Jon Moxley is currently dealing with an injury.

Loading...

According to Dave Meltzer in the The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Jon Moxley was being extra cautious during his latest independent dates with Northeast Wrestling. Moxley is dealing with an elbow injury, which may be the result of an infection he got in Japan.

Moxley was originally scheduled to be in singles match at the Northeast Wrestling event on 8/16 in Poughkeepsie, NY, but was turned into a tag-team match due his injury. Moxley was adamant that his match the day before against Pentagon Jr. remained a singles match, but was very careful not to bump on the injured elbow.

The fact that he was still able to perform the independent dates last weekend is a good indication he won’t be sidelined prior to AEW’s next pay-per-view.

Jon Moxley is scheduled to face Kenny Omega at All Out in Chicago on 8/31. Whether or not his elbow is at 100% is still unclear.
