Hand it over? Stables have been a feature of wrestling for a very long time now and there is nothing to suggest that will change in the near future. They are still an effective idea as they allow multiple wrestlers to be able to get on television in a single segment. There are still times where things need to be changed though, and that seems to be the case again in an odd way.
This weekend’s Ring Of Honor Death Before Dishonor card was scheduled to feature a six man tag match involving Tully Blanchard Enterprises. However, before the match, Ring Of Honor mainstay Prince Nana announced that he had purchased the stable from Blanchard. Nana would appear in the corner of Kan/Toa Liona/Brian Cage for their six man tag, as well as Jonathan Gresham as he lost the Ring Of Honor World Title to Claudio Castagnoli. There is no word on why the change was made or if Blanchard will have something else to do in AEW/Ring Of Honor.
Opinion: I’m curious about what happened with Blanchard, but this does feel like a better fit. Blanchard never really fit in with his new team and while he is a great manager and wrestling legend, it might be better to go in a different direction. Maybe AEW has something else for him, but managing a stable might not be the best idea. There is something there for Blanchard, and hopefully they can figure it out.
What do you think of Blanchard? How should he be used in AEW? Let us know in the comments below.
