Jay Lethal Discusses ROH Contract, WWE Talks

Jay Lethal has become a pillar of Ring of Honor, and that won't be changing any time soon.

The former ROH World and Television champion re-signed with the company amid several contracts expiring. Lethal spoke to ComicBook.com about the deal, confirming it.

"Yes, that is true. You guys are the first people to ask me that straight out, therefore this is the first time I’m answering it straight out. Yes, I did just sign a 2 year deal with Ring of Honor. I’m here to stay," said Lethal.

With WWE raiding several NJPW talents in 2016, many thought that could be the case again in 2017 with ROH. According to Lethal, he didn't even have discussions with WWE.

“There’s a huge influx of guys going to the WWE right now and Ring of Honor is realizing that if they want to get any bigger they have to make sure that their guys are going to stick around. I really had no real contact with them. Especially since my contract with Ring of Honor never officially ended before I re-signed. So, we weren’t allowed to talk with each other until the contract runs out, so no, not really.” said Lethal.
