ROH/AEW News: AEW hires longtime ROH referee Paul Turner, former ROH officer worker also hired, Jerry Lynn added as a coach (w/Radican’s Analysis)

By Sean Radican, PWTorch Columnist


Multiple PWTorch sources have indicated that longtime ROH official Paul Turner and Christina Meyers, who worked in the office and in merchandise, have been hired by AEW. Meyers left ROH a couple of weeks ago, but PWTorch wasn’t able to confirm until today that she was headed to AEW to work in a similar capacity as she did in ROH behind the scenes.

AEW  also announced the signings of longtime independent officials Rick Knox, who most notably worked for PWG and Lucha Underground and Bryce Remsburg, who is a longtime CHIKARA official.

Radican’s Analysis: These are two great hires for AEW from ROH. I had heard back in January from one source that AEW would be taking an office worker and a referee from ROH, but I was unable to confirm exactly who was heading to AEW in either case. It will be interesting to see who ROH hires to fill the void with Turner gone, as Todd Sinclair is the only tenured referee left on the roster. Turner is a great referee and I had always heard good things about Meyers behind the scenes while she was in ROH. Knox, Remsburg, and Lynn are great additions behind the scenes as well.
