Backstage News On ROH Contracts & Their Futures

Source: The Wrestling Observer Newsletter

— As noted earlier, Preston City Wrestling out of Preston, England has announced three shows for Supershow of Honor. PCW released the news via a video saying the shows will take place on 11/28 and 11/29 and feature Kevin Steen, Michael Bennett, Michael Elgin, Kyle O’Reilly and Bobby Fish.

Steen likely won’t be available come November due to his WWE commitments and O’Reilly and Fish’s current ROH contracts will both have expired by then. According to a source, the deal between the two promotions has been in the works for some time and a lot of ROH talent have worked PCW shows in the past. The idea is to bring in a lot of ROH wrestlers and PCW is modeling the idea after the Global Wars show from Toronto with a lot of ROH vs. ROH and PCW vs. PCW matches, as well as mixed matches.

— Bobby Fish’s ROH deal was just extended but we’re not sure for how long as of this writing. O’Reilly’s contract still has some time left on it but no word on how long or if he’ll be re-signing when it expires. WWE has shown interest in both Fish and O’Reilly so it’ll be interesting to see what happens with them. New Japan is also said to be interested in both talents but NJPW and ROH have a working agreement so that would likely help ROH if the two were to work out a deal with them.

— Matt Hardy is booked for the 7/12 ROH live event in Hopkins, MN. A decision on using Hardy in the future is said to be pending. Prior to taking the bookings for TNA’s shows in New York City, Hardy still had several ROH dates left on his current contract.

— Michael Bennett’s ROH contract expires in November.
