Since we have gotten a lot of emails asking about this, I wanted to take note of an apparent situation brewing with Ring of Honor and ACH.  Over the weekend, ACH worked for AAW in Illinois and made some comments on the mic that some have taken to have been shots at ROH. 

Jeremy Boone, who filed live reports from AAW, wrote the following recap for earlier this week: "ACH cut an interesting promo talking about how he is "married" to somebody (assuming he means ROH), but wishes he could instead be with the girl that always loved him and appreciated him (assuming he means AAW) unlike his current "wife" who does not appreciate him the way he deserves.  He says that soon he plans on getting a "divorce" with his wife."

While I cannot confirm whether ACH was running some sort of angle for himself on the show or whether he was actually venting about the company, I can confirm that based on what we have heard, he's under an exclusive ROH deal and cannot work independent dates without the company's approval.   So, unless ROH signed off on those appearances, that could be an issue.    We've heard from wrestlers in the company who were really upset about the comments, feeling that he buried the company. 

We were told that ROH officials are aware of the comments and intend to speak with ACH at the Glory by Honor events this weekend.  One would think that if something is going to come out of this, it would happen by this weekend's events.

Of course, Ring of Honor will present their 2016 Glory by Honor weekend in Chicago Ridge, IL and Dearborn, Michigan this weekend, featuring the following lineups:
