ROH To Allow Talent to Work Elsewhere During Shutdown

Posted By James Walsh on 10/27/21

More details have come out about today’s big news regarding ROH going on hiatus and talent reportedly being released from their contracts. Fightful reports that the talent releases will be effective at the end of 2021 and that if a contract goes beyond the end of the year, talent will be paid until March 31st.

Talent has been told to contact Greg Gilleland if they want to work elsewhere and that if they’re still under contract, the company will “work on making that happen.”

ROH COO Joe Koff spoke with PWInsider about the development and said (transcription courtesy of Fightful):

“We care very deeply about our people and our talent. This is contractual and an individual conversation. I’m not going to comment on it at this point.”

When asked if talent would be able to take work with other companies, Koff said, “We’ve had a conversation with them and we will certainly work with every talent for whatever needs they need to fulfill what they’re looking for.”
