Jay Lethal discusses the temptation of AEW and WWE.
Former ROH World Champion Jay Lethal is one of the most decorated wrestlers in ROH history. Between his two title reigns, he is longest reigning ROH World Champion in history and has the most successful title defenses. Lethal has theoretically done it all in ROH but that doesn't mean he's done helping build the company.
Speaking to Sportskeeda, Lethal was asked about his future in wrestling.
"I see wrestling going on a gradual uphill trend and continuing that trend. The more wrestling promotions out there for fans to watch the better. How boring would it be and how boring was it when there was only one show in town and that was all you could watch? Imagine one wrestling fan having only 1 or 2 favorite wrestlers. Now with the click of a button, that wrestling fan can watch almost every wrestling promotion that he or she wants around the world. Now they can have 15 to 20 favorite wrestlers," said Lethal. "Where do I see myself? There is no telling what tomorrow will hold. As far as where I want to be, my longtime dream was to make it in professional wrestling. To me, what making it was, was being able to buy a house, and buy a car, and pay your bills without needing an extra job. Just solely from the money that I make from wrestling. Ring of Honor has provided me with the opportunity to do so. I am extremely thankful for that. They have also given me opportunities that no other wrestling company that I've worked for has given me until now have given me. Hopefully, the future holds me doing something with or in Ring of Honor."
Lethal recently lost the ROH World Title to Matt Taven at ROH-NJPW G1 Supercard in a triple threat ladder match that also featured Marty Scurll. He signed a new deal with ROH at the end of 2018.
