• Are Rumors Of ROH Getting Canceled True?
ROH Wrestling announced today that they will be going on a hiatus in the first quarter of 2022.
You can read their statement below:
“Throughout the pandemic, our top priority was to keep everyone healthy and safe, and despite not producing any live events over 18 months, we were able to keep everyone fully contracted.
We now find ourselves at a time where we need to make changes to our business operations and are planning a pivot for Ring of Honor, with a new mission and strategy.
The year will culminate with a Final Battle in December, and we will be taking the first quarter of 2022 to work internally to reimagine ROH. ROH has the most dedicated fans in the industry, and we appreciate their loyalty and patience as we reconceptualize ROH.
We anticipate returning to live events in April for the Super Card of Honor with a new fan-focused product and provide a unique experience for wrestling fans.”
Dave Meltzer then released an update that “everyone” got released from their ROH contracts.
PWInsider then added that ROH wrestlers whose contracts expire at the end of the year will not be renewed. Wrestlers whose contracts go beyond January 1, 2022 will be kept under contract for a while.
Bryan Alvarez of the Wrestling Observer then added that wrestlers are free to work anywhere despite their contract status with ROH, and that rumors of Sinclair canceling ROH are false.
