Report: Ring Of Honor Continuing To Pay Wrestlers For Canceled Events; Including Names Yet To Debut

Ring of Honor is doing the honorable thing by paying their talents in spite of the fact that all shows through June 1 have been canceled.
According to a report from Mike Johnson of PWInsider, Ring of Honor has gone through great lengths to make sure that any international wrestlers who were traveling in or had already traveled in for the canceled Las Vegas pay-per-view and TV tapings back in March were rushed back home to their countries in order to ensure that they would not be stuck in the United States when travel bans kicked in. 
Domestic-based wrestlers were given the choice of taking their originally scheduled fights back from Vegas or getting an immediate flight back home.
El Phantasmo confirmed this report on Twitter when he thanked Ring of Honor for paying him to shoot an angle for a canceled pay-per-view.

In addition, ROH has reportedly paid all staff, including ring crew, in full, for all scheduled dates, as if the events had actually taken place. This even includes names like Adam Brooks that had yet to debut for the promotion, and names for the planned tournaments that never took place, such as Katarina Waters.
New Japan Pro-Wrestling is also continuing to pay their talent despite not running events. Learn more about that at this link.
