According to recent news stories December 31, will be a huge day for Ring of Honor as far as contracts go because a variety of contracts are set to expire on that day. The contracts set to expire include War Machine, Jay Lethal, BJ Whitmer, Steve Corino, Bobby Curise, Kyle O' Reilly, and Bobby Fish.
At this point Kyle and Jay Lethal are both expected to sign back with the company this is especially the case following Kyle's title win at Final Battle two weeks ago. Which is extremely benefical for the company as they have really built both of these men up from the bottom to become two of the most known talents outside of the WWE right now. Also without ROH it's fair to think Kyle wouldn't have become a familar face in New Japan like he and Bobby Fish have become. These two are the embodiment of ROH talent because of how much they display their loyalty to ROH.
Right now Steve Corino is set to walk away from the company as he has signed with WWE to begin down in the Performance Center as a trainer. His deal has yet to expire with ROH so if for some reason his WWE deal falls through for some reason it is still possible for to re-sign with ROH. This is also the hidden meaning behind the reason for another decision that has been made recently by ROH managment. Ask for the Young Bucks who also had contract set to expire offically resigned with ROH recently garnering around a 6 figured contact with NJPW & ROH keeping them out of WWE for now and will allow the Hardy Boys and the Bucks to create something special next year on a large scale for the first time.
If you don't know anything about the Hardy's vs Young Bucks match rumors feel free to do a little bit of research as Matt Hardy appeared at Final Battle in video form. This could lead to a fantastic co-promotion opportunity for both ROH & TNA with a match between the Hardy's and Bucks so stay tuned to see when that match would be happening and anymore information about a possible co-promotion opportunity between the two companies.
