Pro Wrestling Since 1997


Kenny King responds to ROH’s statement on his contractual status

Kenny King via Twitter:

My people’s,

First and foremost to all of my friends, Family and everyone riding with me on this one thank you. The love and support has been unreal. It doesn’t matter if your’e a new Kenny King fan or you’ve been with your boy since tough enough. My passion for this sport reflects yours, and I will continue to bust my ass to give back the love you have shown me.

Second I would like to thank @ringofhonor for the opportunity To master my craft against some of the best wrestlers in the world. The last 4 years have been invaluable to my career. I have nothing but love and respect for the company that allowed me to find myself and grow as a wrestler.

Next, since the content of my character has been called into question, just ask about me. My integrity and HONOR has always been above reproach. But since they wanna talk bad about your boy, consider this…

(spoiler alert)

I was offered a contract extension, I had reservations about the parameters of the extension and effective my “free agent” option would be.

I gave a handshake agreement that I wouldn’t do anything “screwy” with the belts. A la medusa.

I gave ROH information about every move that I made regarding working for @impactwrestling. Realistically they could have just found out when they saw my black ass walking down to the ring.

I was given a physical contact extension by ROH, which I respectfully declined to sign due to the reasons I stated above.

If I declined to sign an actual contract extension, how could anyone think there was a verbal agreement?

I took the biggest gamble of my career this weekend. So going into destination X tomorrow night I am prepared to put it all on the line. I am especially grateful to @tnadixie and @impactwrestling for giving me the opportunity to showcase my skills on a bigger stage. I was given an amazing opening and I took it. Ask Eminem how many chances you get to blow up. The world will watch tomorrow, and I got a bag full of fireworks. Tomorrow is coronation day.

Thank you.
Kenny King

    Who cares about ROH? Everybody wants to work for TNA or WWE.

  2. Rex Anderson says:

    Hate or love it, I agree. You can’t force a man to perform if he honestly said no.

    Kenny King Rules!

  4. Your Hero says:

    It’d be selfish for any fans to be upset about a life decision made by a human being to better their life just so we can see them in an environment that better entertains us. It’s a business with businessmen who have no business degrees, are often underpaid and lack long term security. Can’t blame a soul for any decisions they make.

    Ring of Honor Wrestling. Where you pay for a terrible produced iPPV.

    I still think ROH handled this terribly. Deal with him doing it, bring him back for a show or two to either hand over the belt or drop it, and you’re done. Leave it alone.

    I have doubts that TNA would have done much to keep him from filling out a few more dates after all.
