Ring Of Honor Wrestling announced via press release it has severed all ties with reigning ROH Tag-Team Champion Kenny ‘King’ Layne. The 30-year-old Queens New York native had been working on a handshake agreement with the company after they were unable to come to terms on a new contract when his expired back on June 24th. Layne surprisingly showed up on TNA Impact Wrestling this week prompting ROH to announce the firing of their current tag-team champion.
