Update On ROH’s Decision To Pull Talent Who Worked The Collective From Recent Taping

Posted By James Walsh on 10/16/20

As we previously reported, ROH has decided not to use talent that worked GCW The Collective last weekend for their upcoming TV tapings. This is due to the fact that Dan the Dad, Cabana Man Dan and AC Mack tested positive for COVID-19, so there is concern that there was exposure to certain talents. Only Danhausen has confirmed he will not be working the tapings, although he noted he tested negative.

According to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the TV tapings had to be rewritten as a result of the changes. However, ROH is paying all of the talent that were booked but eventually sent home.

ROH’s Joe Koff said in a statement: “While Ring of Honor does not publicly discuss specific internal decisions, ROH is taking every measure to preserve the integrity of its rigorous health and safety protocol for the upcoming tapings.“
