The former Enzo Amore feels that Ring Of Honor may “still be alive” if the company had followed up on a match involving both he and W. Morrissey.
Enzo Amore, now going by the name Real1, and W. Morrissey (who was known to fans as Big Cass when the pair teamed together in WWE) were involved in the joint ROH and NJPW G1 Supercard which took place at Madison Square Garden in 2019. The event, which was over WrestleMania weekend, saw the pair attempt to jump the guardrail for an attack before being removed by security.
In a recent appearance on the DDP Snake Pit Podcast, Real1 commented that he feels that it was a huge mistake that this appearance was never followed up on, and could have been something which saved Ring Of Honor.
Ring of Honor did not follow up that match with me and Cass. You could’ve sold out Madison Square Garden with Enzo and Cass, G.O.D., and the Briscoes in a tag team title match. You could’ve, you would’ve sold out the Garden again — and now Ring of Honor sold out to Tony Khan. The company would still maybe be alive if they booked that match. But then again, that’s on them.
Ring Of Honor went on hiatus at the end of 2021, and it was announced on the 2nd March 2022 edition of AEW Dynamite that the brand had been purchased by Tony Khan. Whilst there has been limited activity from the company directly, its championships have been defended on AEW programming and there has been talk that there will be a weekly ROH show starting next year.
