ROH Re-signings, Taping Spoilers
Two major updates for Ring of Honor coming out of their Death Before Dishonor event this weekend. One is that their new World Champion, RUSH, is out injured. It is unknown what the extent of his injury is.
Their former World Champion, Matt Taven, has re-signed with the company. At their latest set of tapings, Taven announced to the crowd that he isn’t going anywhere. According to Wrestling Observer (h/t CagesideSeats), ROH made a sizable offer to Taven that could be up to three times as much as the biggest NXT contract. If true, that is a big financial reason to re-up with Ring of Honor.
ROH also had their most recent television tapings on the weekend. Highlights include the Top Prospect tournament finals and the first round matchups of the Final Battle Number One Contender tournament. The full spoilers courtesy of Fightful can be found here.
