Back in October ROH announced that the company would be going on a hiatus for the first quarter of 2022. Not long after that, it was also announced that all current talent signed to the company would be released from their contracts. Talents were told if they wanted to go elsewhere that Ring Of Honor would work alongside the talent and make it happen. We have already former ROH Champion Jay Lethal make his way to AEW , but it looks like some talents that are sticking with ROH until the final date on December 11 is seeing the current situation as pointless.
Dalton Castle a talent who has been with ROH since 2013, and was once an ROH World Champion is giving his opinions on the current situation. While speaking to The Gentleman’s Club, Castle talked about his feelings on the final sets of TV tapings.
“It all feels meaningless, actually. We just did a recording like three days ago and it was weird. We just showed up knowing that our jobs were ending. I’m proud of what I’ve done. We still have one more pay-per-view with fans in December. I’m excited about that. I’m not mad at that. Yes, maybe there were some decisions along the way with hindsight that probably led to this moment, but they’ve given me so much and I’ve had such a great time. I’m still wrestling. I’m sad to see something that I’ve loved for so long end.”
On the most recent ROH TV episode, he captured the promotion’s Television Title. ROH has suspended all live events after Final Battle until April. The company is planning a reboot at the Supercard of Honor event. Talent will no longer be signed on exclusive contracts but on a per-appearance basis so we will have to see how the company goes about its business post-hiatus.
