Kelly Klein Clarifies Concussion Story, Says She Was Not Forced To Perform In Africa

Kelly Klein offers clarity.

On Thursday night it was reported ROH would not renew the contract of Women of Honor Champion Kelly Klein once her current deal expires. Klein has been sidelined with a concussion, which has been a big talking point on social media. Joey Mercury, who first brought to light the issues in ROH in a series of tweets on Nov. 1, called out ROH for its lack of concussion protocol and treatment of Klein. Mercury took aim at ROH GM Greg Gilleland, accusing him of allowing Klein to travel to and wrestle in South Africa despite her concussion.
