Ring Of Honor shocked the pro wrestling world to its core when it announced that it will undergo a reimagining. This led to the company releasing all of its talents at the same time. It seems several ROH talents might end up in AEW.
ROH Final Battle took place this weekend and it was truly the end of an era for many fans, as the show had a lot of fanservice for longtime fans. It also featured several memorable moments, including the debut of Braun Strowman.
According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, there is a likelihood of several former ROH talents making their way to AEW. This includes the likes of Dragon lee, Brody King and Bandido.
“Maybe it’s one of those things where they have that tape library, I mean I know they said originally it wasn’t for sale, but there’s like, again, maybe Tony decided to be nice and spice up their show and think it would be good for his company because people will talk about his company.
I’m sure there is a [Briscoes vs FTR match] coming, but I’m sure it’ll be in AEW and I’m sure there’s probably more. As far as who else from ROH will end up in AEW, I don’t know. There’s plenty of quality people. Dragon Lee is one of the top guys and Brody King, Bandido, I mean there’s some real talent. There’s a lot of real talent in this company.”
The Briscoes are certainly likely to make their way to AEW as even FTR wants to square off against them. It remains to be seen which former ROH talents will sign with AEW.
