They have a future. The biggest wrestling story of the week was what seemed to be the near destruction of Ring of Honor, which has gone from one of the more important promotions to apparently almost nothing, as most of their roster has been released. The company has announced plans to return in April, but it was not clear what they would be doing. Now we know a bit more about what to expect.
According to Wrestling Observer Radio, the plan for Ring of Honor’s return will be to use whatever independent wrestlers they can find for their shows. These wrestlers would not be under contract, meaning that there would be nothing stopping other promotions from signing them, which could change storylines and title situations. This basically makes the promotion an independent wrestling company again, though Sinclair has not canceled their television show.
The company had some glory days. Check out some of their better moments:
Opinion: I’m not sure how much of a surprise a lot of this is, as I’m not sure what else you could have really expected. Ring of Honor losing its roster and basically starting from scratch is not the kind of thing that you can just recover from, as it leaves them in a completely different place. Ring of Honor will still be around, but it is only going to be in name only.
