Ring of Honor is announcing that Gabe Sapolsky will be leaving the company effective immediately. Everybody at ROH would like to thank him for his contributions and wish him well in all future endeavors.

Going forward Ring of Honor will be focusing on the stories and the talent in the ring. The company will have no further comments on this issue or a replacement for Mr. Sapolsky. We would like to thank all of the fans and media who have supported us over the years and look forward to bringing you more great wrestling excitement in the future.


Demonstrations are a drag. Besides, we're much too high

Ack. I got Flea'd. (Also for the better since I apparently can't get my Polish names right...) Well, since I'm headed to Banished-land, here's what I had to say...

    This will either be remembered as the best decision ROH made, or their worst. Assuming it was ROH's decision to let Gabe go, hopefully they had a plan. I mean, if you're even a semi-successful business you wouldn't let one of your top guys go without having an ultimately better replacement in the wings.

    Now that Jerry Lynn is a full time player, maybe he's gotten the ball rolling on the most obvious SQUEEE-inducing union since Jim and Pam. If you can get him away from The Sun that is...

A CHIKARA influence can only help the staleness of the product.

Of course, whether or not the super serious ROHbots will accept that style is another matter.

WTF! According to Meltzer (via Adam Pearce is the new ROH booker. I really hope that's just a stopgap measure until they can get someone else in there. Who knows, maybe he's a booking genius, but I don't like the sound of this.

Adam has experience booking for a California promotion called AWS where he boosted their attendance from under 100 per show to more than 200 per show.

(This admittedly is not that hard to do.)

The alternative was apparently Bushwhacker Luke which I found bizarre.

I think the biggest issue will be whether the locker room will support him especially since Gabe was better liked in the locker room than in the front office.

Admittedly, even in the locker room, Gabe wasn't universally liked, but he was, as far as I can tell, respected by just about everyone.

The biggest red flag to me was that Adam asked the locker room in an e-mail to kayfabe that he was the new booker, and as much as I agree with the fact that people should not know who the booker is, or at the very least the booker role should not be one that earns someone the spotlight, but thinking that you could announce that you are the new booker in an e-mail and simultaneously ask people to keep it a secret is monumentally dumb unless you wanted people to know.

Yes, I agree. Add to this the fact that Taker CAN'T lose any time soon (otherwise what's the point) then putting him on regular television would be pointless also.
