Ring of Honor star says the company still doesn’t have a concussion protocol
Joey Mercury has gone public with the many issues he has dealt with in Ring of Honor, clearing up rumors of his departure by stating sternly that he quit the promotion. Earlier reports had suggested that Mercury has been removed from his ROH duties, with implications that he may have “fallen off the wagon” in his battle with drugs. Three time Women of Honor champion Kelly Klein says Mercury had her back when she suffered a concussion, “he was the person there to help me and take care of me when I had a concussion and didn’t know where I was,” Klein tells GERWECK.NET. In fact, Klein doesn’t believe Ring of Honor has a concussion protocol. “ROH still has no concussion protocol. Interestingly, I asked the GM (Greg Gilleland) if we had one not too long ago. He didn’t answer me.”
GERWECK.NET contacted the Ring of Honor general manager and asked if the company does have a concussion protocol. He stated, “Yes we do have a concussion protocol. Ring of Honor takes all injuries very seriously and the health and welfare of our wrestlers and staff are always our primary concern.”
On Friday, Klein posted on her social regarding Ring of Honor, ““I want us to be allowed to make it better.”

I love Ring of Honor and I want someone guiding the company who will work for the best interests of the product and protect the talent who work hard to make it happen. We had someone who wanted to do that and tried to do that, and eventually gave up trying to do that when it became clear that he didn’t have the support he needed to make those positive changes. I love Ring of Honor and I want to make it better. I want us to be allowed to make it better.
