In an interview with CBS New York, ROH General Manager Greg Gilleland was asked about the potential of losing those talents. 

"Of course, we’re going to do everything that we can to keep them. And we have fair offers and fair plans to retain them. With that said, I don’t think we ever operate in fear. We always operate with solid backup plans," said Gilleland. "If they go to the WWE, and they very much deserve that opportunity, we’ll continue to offer the best wrestling that we can. There’s other talent out there. And we will continue as our brand has for the past however many years. We’ve lost top guys before," he continued. 

Gilleland reminded the interviewer of what kind of wrestlers ROH has lost in the past to WWE. 

"Think about Kevin Owens and even going back to Bryan Danielson and CM Punk and all of them. They all went to the WWE, and the brand has continued to grow and prosper," said Gilleland." 

G1 Supercard takes place April 6th and Fightful Wrestling will have live coverage and discussion of the event.
