ROH might have some big shoes to fill if all of The Elite leave the company. Therefore, they are going to start signing as many big names as they can. But WWE is also in this mindset and they have way more money they are willing to spend on talent.
Mike Johnson said on PW Insider Elite audio that WWE has actually snatched up a couple guys that ROH was looking at bringing in. Needless to say, it will be interesting to see who ROH is able to bring into the company with WWE actively looking for talent.
“They just re-signed Jay Lethal. They signed Jeff Cobb. I know they tried to sign ACH, they had negotiations with him before it became apparent he was going to WWE. They did, this has been about three or four months ago, they did try and sign WALTER who WWE just signed. So they’re in the mode of ‘We’re gonna find some new talents and bring them in.'”
It would have been interesting if ROH would have been able to work something out with WALTER. Especially considering how hard it was for WWE to get WALTER to sign a deal. But it looks like WWE is going to keep locking down and snatching up as much talent as they can which makes this a great time to be a pro wrestler.
