In the past few years the WWE has made a habit of picking off various ROH talent and bring them to NXT/FCW. Just to name some talent that WWE has taken: CM Punk, Daniel Bryan (Bryan Danielson), Kevin Owens (Kevin Steen), Sami Zayn (El Generico), and others. Now more talent seem to be on the radar of WWE and could be walking away from ROH following the expiration of their contracts.
Out of the three talent I will speak of only one is absolutely not going to WWE even though they did have interest in him and that person is Moose, as he just resigned a contract with ROH after month ago. But below I will talk about two major names that are on WWE's radar and maybe leaving ROH:
Adam Cole: The Former ROH TV & World Champion has been on WWE's radar for a few years now and nothing has come of it. But just remember Cole is one of the talents who was signed back when ROH was first bought by Sinclair in 2011 so it could be possible that his contract is expiring soon. In my opinion ROH has done a good job of moving Cole out of the World title picture and making him a part of The Kingdom. I think if Adam did walk away from ROH losing him wouldn't hurt as bad now as it once would have.
Jay Lethal: The Current ROH World Champion & Television Champion, Jay is currently the face of Ring of Honor and would be a huge loss for the WWE once his contract expires. As of this writing it seems as though Jay's contract is up within the next few months and some believe that Jay was given the World Title and such a big push as a way to try and get him to stay with the company. Right now I think a case could be made for Jay to go either way, because he has never been a World Champion before and is finally getting the opportunity. But he has also to my knowledge never been offered a contract by WWE. So in reality it's a double edged sword, and for once I can not stand firmly behind one side, because Jay would have a lot to gain with either choice.
