• Former ROH Wrestler Accuses The Company Of Being Racist

Ring Of Honor took to Twitter to issue a statement on the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement going on in USA.

Below is the statement they issued:

“ROH stands with the peaceful protests occurring around the country that are forcing important conversations and actions to address racism in this country.

ROH supports a diverse, inclusive community that treats all people with the respect and dignity that they deserve, and we will use our platform to expose instances of racism and prejudice in all forms.

We also extend our sincere condolences to the Floyd family and hope that as a country we can come together and ensure incidents like this never happen again.”

Former ROH wrestler Faye Jackson accused ROH of showing hypocrisy by issuing the statement, as she accused them of treating her differently because of her color.

Below is what she said:

“I remember the days of ‘Women of Honor’ having locker room meetings but I was never invited.

The one time I invited myself I was met with stares and eye rolls.

Inclusive right?”
