Former Ring of Honor champion Michael Elgin recently posted the following message to his Facebook page, updating the situation between himself and ROH.
Elgin was held over in Canada due to visa issues, but ended up leaving the company after an internal dispute between himself and the company. ROH advertised he was returning to the company this weekend, but Elgin later went on Twitter and said he was not, and had in fact quit the company.
Some have speculated that this was an angle, but Elgin disputes this and says it’s real, and he went on Twitter just to clarify he won’t be back.
I first want to say thank you to all the supporters out there, it has been my pleasure to perform for you.
I want to admit the quitting on twitter is a little childish but I don’t want to be advertised for a show I won’t be a part of.
I will give kudos to ROH for rushing to get me back home, for that I am grateful. I had numerous conversations with the company about all situations that have occurred and told them my stance. I was trying to be business minded and was trying to reach a full understanding that would allow both parties to move forward. Nothing was agreed upon and instead of trying to reach an agreement they announced me for this weekends upcoming shows.
I would not have taken to twitter in this matter as I have held my tongue this entire time. I feel everything that has went down is between the parties involved and no one else. In all that I just don’t want to have people thinking I’ll be somewhere I won’t be.
I love professional wrestling, i have given almost 14 years to it and wouldn’t change it for the world. It’s my passion and what has drove me to become the man I am today. I love and respect Professional wrestling with the upmost regard. Thank you for supporting it and please continue to do so.
