A lot of news has come out over the weekend about Davey Richards and Ring of Honor falling out, and Ring of Honor finally publically commented on it on Dec. 2. In the statement, ROH said that Richards was removed for “unprofessionalism” and “unreliability” to Ring of Honor Wrestling.
This statement comes one day after Davey Richards told his side of the story, saying that Ring of Honor was robbing him of his farewell match to Ring of Honor fans as well as robbing fans of getting the chance to say goodbye to him after all he did for the company.
However, the big problem here, and the unprofessionalism part of Ring of Honor’s argument, came when Richards did an interview last month where he said the ROH titles no longer meant anything and that he was just doing his job and didn’t care if the company ever got it’s “crap together.”
Word is that Ring of Honor was furious at these statements. With Richards possibly signing with the WWE developmental system soon, he may not feel it was a big deal, but he also ripped into TNA Impact Wrestling in the same interview and no-showed some Japanese dates with a mysterious injury, so if the WWE does not work out for him, he may be finished.
Ring of Honor did announce that Eddie Edwards will still compete at “Final Battle 2013” in a tag team match against Roderick Strong and Jay Lethal, but ROH will find him a different tag team partner to allow the “American Wolves” farewell match to “raise the bar,” a clear dig at Davey Richards.
