ROH's CEO Wants Cody Rhodes to Sign Exclusive with Company

Posted By James Walsh on 09/05/17


Ring of Honor CEO Joe Koff said in a new interview that he thinks Cody Rhodes should be signing exclusively to the company. Koff spoke with USA Today about Cody’s status, Kenny Omega appearing at Global Wars and more. The highlights are below:

On wanting Cody to be exclusive to Ring of Honor: “We love him as our champion and we love how he represents Ring of Honor, but we would like him to be solely Ring of Honor and not wrestling in other places where it has no meaning except to the local promotions, who I have no problem with. But he belongs here. He should be signing here.”

On Cody not committing to the company yet: “With each week that passes that he’s part of Ring of Honor, I think Cody realizes this is really where he needs to be and solely be here. I’m hopeful for that. He has been nothing but a great champion and a great voice for us. It does bother me a little bit that he is still wrestling in those other promotions. Just to be clear, this is not something he’ll read for the first time. He knows my feelings.”

On Kenny Omega appearing on the Global Wars tour: “We defend our belts over there. I would expect they would defend their belt over here. We have a terrific relationship with New Japan. It’s very symbiotic. We wrestle in the same style; we book in the same way. I would think at some point it could be defended here if they’re wrestling on one of our tours. That would be fantastic.”
