Ring Of Honor released a follow-up statement this afternoon regarding an incident that occurred this past weekend an event in Portland, OR.

An internal review was issued earlier week after a fan states he was brought backstage at a Ring Of Honor event, and intimidated by Bully Ray. This fan was reportedly being belligerent towards members of The Allure, which caused the incident backstage.

Ring of Honor is still in the process of investigating this matter, but has apologized for what transpired over the weekend.

The following statement was sent to HeelByNature.com

From Greg Gilleland, General Manager, Ring of Honor:

ROH FOLLOWUP STATEMENT:

Ring of Honor prides itself on providing a fun and entertaining environment for both our fans and wrestlers to experience professional wrestling at the highest level.

Fans are encouraged to cheer, boo, and chant during the show while wrestlers interact both positively and in rivalry, as that is the engagement that makes the ROH experience what it is. Wrestlers interacting with fans is core to the experience, however, under no circumstance should any of our athletes or staff confront or engage fans outside the bounds of this entertainment experience or outside the bounds of the area that hosts this experience. We hold all of our athletes and staff members to the highest standards and, because of the actions over the weekend, we fell short of meeting those standards.

We are still in the process of investigating this matter as well as reviewing and assessing internal security protocols to ensure a safe environment for all fans and athletes. All of our athletes and staff will also be trained and reminded of our policies and protocols for fan interaction and appropriate behavior in all situations. 

To our amazing and wonderful fans, we apologize for the matter that transpired this past weekend as it does not reflect who we are as an organization or how we hope to engage with our fans.  ROH fans are known worldwide for their passion, admiration, and appreciation for our athletes, and we share this same admiration and appreciation for our fans.  We encourage all of our fans to continue attending our events and supporting our amazing athletes in a respectful manner as they have done in the past, and we promise to continue delivering what the fans deserve – the best wrestling and the best fan experience on the planet.

Bully Ray issued the following statement earlier this week providing his side to the story.

WWE will be presenting Clash of Champions tonight from the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, NC.

Based on future WWE house show advertising, Seth Rollins is scheduled to have a feud with Bray Wyatt, which may end up with the two having a match inside Hell in A Cell next month in Sacramento, CA.

These plans may have changed, as Wrestlevotes is reporting that Seth Rollins next feud may be a returning Drew McIntyre.

Drew McIntyre had minor surgery recently, and is scheduled to make his return this week.

Wrestlevotes is also reporting that serious discussions are in place that Seth Rollins will lose his title tonight at Clash Of Champions. Based on betting odds for tonight, Rollins is still the favorite to defeat Braun Strowman. As always, things can change, as nothing is concrete with Vince McMahon constantly changing his mind.

WWE Clash Of Champions will air tonight on PPV and the WWE Network.
