Kenny King Explains His Side Of The ROH Situation

Nick Paglino

Ring of HonorFormer ROH Tag Team Champion and current TNA talent Kenny King has posted the following on Twitter, explaining his side of the Ring of Honor departure story:

I was offered a contract extension, I had reservations about the parameters of the extension and effective my 'free agent' option would be. I gave a handshake agreement that I wouldn't do anything 'screwy' with the belts. Ala (Madusa).

I gave ROH information about everyone that I made regarding working for (TNA Impact Wrestling). Realistically they could have just found out when they saw my black ass walking down to the ring. I was given a physical contact extension by ROH, which I respectfully declined to sign due to the reasons I stated above. If I declined to sign an actual contract extension, how could anyone think there was a verbal agreement?

I took the biggest gamble of my career this weekend. So going into Destination X… I am prepared to put it all on the line. I am especially grateful to (Dixie Carter) and (Impact Wrestling) for giving me the opportunity to showcase my skills on a bigger stage. I was given an amazing opening and I took it. Ask Eminem how many chances you get to blow up…
