David Starr received some praise from Ring Of Honor talents.
The current RPW British Cruiserweight Champion David Starr's name was featured in a plethora of headlines towards the end of March as he pushed out a promo to his Twitter page in-which he expressed his honest opinions about Sinclair Broadcast Group which is the parent company that owns Ring Of Honor. In the promo, Starr also promoted his match with former ROH World Champion Jay Lethal that occurred on April 21st at IWPA's 'Passover Bash' event in Israel.
Starr was told by ROH officials to take the promo down and when Starr joined the 'Jobbing Out' podcast, he explained why he made the video and shared that he respects the history of Ring Of Honor but does not have that same respect for Sinclair Broadcast Group because of company beliefs and other factors. Also during that interview, Starr claimed that he received texts from Ring Of Honor talents who sent positive messages his way for saying what he said in the promo and further expressed that he was/is not calling for people to boycott Ring Of Honor, but just wanted to make his point felt.
“I’m not out here calling for every single person to boycott Ring Of Honor. I’m not saying that at all, so I don’t want it to come off that way and I don’t want it to come off like the wrestlers that work for Ring Of Honor or get paid by Sinclair for Ring Of Honor are bad people or anything like that because that’s not the case." Starr clarified. "There are plenty of people that turn a blind eye to what’s going on. Maybe one or two of them can use that platform to speak for good. Maybe they could, maybe they… I don’t know. There were a few guys on the roster that messaged me that were like, ‘Good stuff’. So I do know that there are guys there that do think about it.”
