Depois de 13 anos na Ring of Honor, a companhia anunciou esta Quarta-feira a saída de uma das suas principais estrelas: Roderick Strong. É o fim de um verdadeiro legado na ROH, mas Roderick Strong ainda participará nas próximas gravações da Ring of Honor, no este Sábado.
Ainda não é conhecido o futuro de Roderick Strong. Para já, apenas se sabe que deve participar em alguns shows de outras federações como a Revolution Pro-Wrestling. Expecula-se que Roderick Strong poderá estar a caminho da WWE, mais concretamente para o NXT.
Roderick Strong agradeceu à Ring of Honor: “ROH was everything great about wrestling to me, getting the most talented people together to push each other and come up with super-unique and interesting things to make the product stand out. They gave me my first real chance to grow and had the confidence in letting me fail or succeed. ROH will always mean the world to me.”
O lutador aproveitou também para agradecer o apoio dos fãs: “I want to be able to personally thank everyone, from the new fans that just found ROH, to the fans that have followed me from the beginning. Ring of Honor is more than just a company to me. It’s my family, I started as 20-year-old kid just looking for an opportunity to learn and grow as a performer. Now I stand here after 12 and a half years loving it just as much, if not more than when I came in. I want to thank you for your patience as you watched me grow over time. I want to thank you for the cheers, the boos and the passion you showed me. Most importantly I want to thank you personally for always supporting the greatest company in the world, Ring of Honor. I hope to see everyone this Saturday in Concord.”
