Update On Bully Ray's Status In ROH

Bully Ray is reportedly done with Ring of Honor, according to PWInsider. Ray's contract with the promotion expired on April 1.

The two sides had planned out and agreed upon his exit as he was originally expected to stay through Supercard of Honor over WrestleMania 36 weekend to close out his story with Maria Manic. Obviously that — and numerous other shows — was cancelled due to COVID-19.

The report continued that there's no heat between Ray and ROH, but rather just a "realization that he had done all he could do there" right now. He debuted back in early 2017 at Manhattan Mayhem VI.

The WWE Hall of Famer is now a free agent and is able to sign with any promotion.

They can't be that stupid, can they? My impression of Callis is that he was pretty savvy to the internet.

this could by all means be about Gallows and Anderson returning, but Bully Ray kinda fits the description too. Him coming back under Callis and D'Amore doesn't mean he gets to run wild like he did with Hogan/Bischoff/Carter tho

1. Props to them for using a guy who was never kicked out of the group on-screen, but getting the rest of them together is going to be kayfabe tricky, considering how so many of them left.


2. As far as former world champions go, the possibilities are:
EC III (my guess)
Bully Ray
Ken Anderson
Austin Aries
Eric Young
Alberto El Patron
Raven
Ken Shamrock

Also, depending on how NWA contracts work:
Magnus
Eli Drake
James Storm

Everyone else is under contract to either WWE or AEW, or already in TNA (Rhino, RVD, Sami Callihan, Eddie Edwards, etc.)

It's also theoretically possible that don't necessarily mean a world champion in TNA (I can't imagine the hoodie isn't meant to make some people think about Punk), but that's just speculation on my part.
