Ring of Honor today announced that they will be pausing its operations following the December Final Battle PPV show and will take the first few months of 2022 to “reimagine” the company.
Everyone under an ROH contract will be released at the end of 2021 but those who will find work elsewhere before will be allowed to do so effective immediately.
In a press release, ROH said they expect to return fresh with their first show in April, tentatively during the WrestleMania weekend.
The full press release is as follows:
“Throughout the pandemic, our top priority was to keep everyone healthy and safe, and despite not producing any live events over 18 months, we were able to keep everyone fully contracted.
We now find ourselves at a time where we need to make changes to our new business operations and are planning a pivot for Ring of Honor, with a new mission and strategy.
The year will culminate with a Final Battle in December, and we will be taking the first quarter of 2022 to work internally to reimagine ROH. ROH has the most dedicated fans in the industry, and we appreciate their loyalty and patience as we reconceptualize ROH.
We anticipate returning to live events in April for the Super Card of Honor with a new fan-focused product and provide a unique experience for wrestling fans.”
