Pearce’s departure was announced by manager Larry Sweeney on his voicemail hotline (215-781-2250) as Sweeney announced he was “flexing his muscle” by pulling Pearce out of the company.
Pearce was aware he was finishing up over the weekend and said his goodbyes to the crew. I believe it was simply a cost-cutting issue as ROH simply had too many people being brought in regularly, but there was no heat and the door is open for Pearce to be used down the line.
Pearce will be a big part of the NWA’s planned relaunch of their Wrestling Showcase series on The Dish Network’s Colours channel in the fall.
