Dave Meltzer is reporting in the latest edition of The Wrestling Observer that WWE has contacted at least one ROH arena with the idea of running shows providing they no longer book ROH. Below is an excerpt for the newsletter:
"There are other moves being made by WWE when it comes to ROH that are likely to become evident going forward. WWE has contacted at least one ROH arena with the idea of running shows provided they no longer book ROH. It's not a killer to ROH, but certainly is an annoyance if the deal goes through. While WWE got word out that they aren't going to sign new talent from ROH, that has already changed as far as current top talent is concerned. There are some ROH wrestlers who are not under contract, most notable being Roderick Strong, and a lot of the top ROH talent has contracts that will expire in January."
WWE are said to be going after ROH more than ever of late, reportedly waiting for the contracts of key talents to expire, looking closley at towns where they book shows and now arenas.
WWE NXT will also be going head-to-head with Ring of Honor on September 19th in San Antonio, Texas. This is during Night of Champions weekend, which takes place on September 20th in Houston.
