Ring Of Honor Releases Entire Roster Ahead Of Going On Hiatus

Ring of Honor has announced they are planning to “work internally to reimagine ROH” and that following Final Battle in December, they will go on hiatus before returning to live events in April for Super Card of Honor. This decision makes sense, as, since the launch of AEW, ROH’s is no longer on many fans’ radars. However, in shocking news, Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter has revealed that ROH has actually released everyone under contract.

For those unaware, wrestlers who were on the ROH roster included Rush, Bandido, Brody King, Silas Young, Mike Bennett, Maria Kanellis, Angelina Love, Mark Briscoe, and Jay Briscoe. It will now be fascinating to see who, if any, return in April. With MLW, Impact Wrestling, and AEW all being open to recruiting new talent, the majority of top talent may have new homes.

ROH was founded in 2002 by Rob Feinstein, but due to serious accusations made against him, he would relinquish the company to longtime friend Doug Gentry. With the promotion struggling, ticket broker Cary Silkin bought them in 2004 and kept them afloat until selling to the Sinclair Broadcast Group in 2011. It has never been publically announced how much Sinclair paid for ROH, but it’s been reported to have been an insignificant amount to Sinclair. As Silkin was losing money running ROH, he was likely happy to just recoup some of his losses.
