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 Bully Ray has an interesting take on ROH.
ROH Final Battle took place last 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.
While speaking on Busted Open Radio, WWE Hall Of Famer Bully Ray talked about Ring Of Honor’s contribution to the pro wrestling world. Ray stated that he believes no other pro wrestling company has created as many stars as ROH.
“Pound-for-pound Ring of Honor has created more stars of today than any other company. We talk about ECW and how ECW changed the landscape of a wrestling business.
Very few ECW guys came out of ECW and were considerably more successful than they were in ECW as Ring of Honor. I mean, the list goes on and on. From the Samoa Joes, to the AJ Styles‘, to the Seth Rollins‘, to the CM Punks, yadda yadda.
Star after star after star and that’s why so many other companies, including NXT in its early days, mimicked everything that went on in Ring of Honor because Ring of Honor was truly giving wrestling fans an alternative in-ring style to what they were seeing in the WWE.”
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.
