As we have been reporting the past couple months, problems (which all could end up being a work) between Michael Elgin and Ring of Honor are ongoing.
At last word, ROH claimed Elgin would be returning to the promotion following Visa problems which prevented Elgin from leaving Canada.
Elgin then took to Twitter and publicly quit the company.
Elgin posted on Facebook yesterday that ROH expects him to be at Saturday’s TV tapings in Lakeland, FL, and threatened him with legal action by sending him the following message:
We already have the flight bought (which you should have gotten already). No room to eat the costs. It will all be fine and you can come back and get back to normal. There is really no choice because if you are not in Florida it will get messy and we don’t want that.
We want to finish this out and then we can see what to do next.
In Florida we will do a match and an interview. In the interview you need to apologize and be sure to reference Kalamazoo by name since it is a TV market. Do NOT mention the visa situation. Just say that you have had personal issues that kept you away. Reference the World Title and say you respect Jay Briscoe. It doesn’t need to be long but we need to make sure you talk about your remorse for missing events, etc.
Lets just do this the easy way and get through the tapings starting fresh. You have been great here for the last couple years and it is in all of our best interests to keep it going like it was before. I don’t want to see you make another mistake so it is best to listen to us in this regard.
Elgin also posted the following:
Maybe I should have not posted this, but since Sept 6th people have tried to make me out to be a bad guy. Someone who is unprofessional and being unreasonable for my actions. This is the type of thing I have had to deal with. Or being told be quiet immigration might see your twitter or facebook while working on your status…… that says we know we messed up so don’t put any attention on it.
I used Highspots to get my story out, and if you saw I was very respectful and didn’t use my time to bury or hurt anyone’s image. Yet for months people within ROH have tried to hurt mine. I’m not letting someone make me look like I’m the bad guy in this situation.
