WWE has a Superstar Shakeup this week, but there could be a shakeup happening in Ring of Honor's offices as we speak.
Fightful Select reported this week that there is some angling and shuffling going on as it pertains to Ring of Honor.
Monster Factory's Danny Cage was cut from Ring of Honor after joining the company in early December. From what we're told he's still being paid by the company, and had a lot of ideas how to shift ROH and Future of Honor's production, which was met with heavy resistance. As for the split, we're told that ROH is still planning an event at Monster Factory this Spring, and Cage is on good terms with Delirious. Joey Mercury is taking over his role.
Speaking of Joey Mercury, Fightful reported this week that he was instrumental in getting Sons of Savagery signed by the company, and has pushed for Maria Manic to come in as well. All of which are alumni from MCW, where he's served as a trainer.
Mercury and Bully Ray are said to be gaining influence within Ring of Honor, while Delirious' (Hunter Johnston) creative input has decreased. Those that we spoke to expected this to accelerate as time moves on. It could be seen with Enzo and Cass, as well as Velvet Sky and Angelina Love being brought in. There were a few names on the NJPW side of things who told us they had no idea Enzo and Cass would be on the show at G1 Supercard.
Those we spoke to in ROH say that there was some heat on any number of people who made the All In deal a reality, as the company ended up helping give crash courses to their upcoming competition for talent.
We'll keep you updated on the situation.
