SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
The following article is part of our Weekly Overview Series to help put in perspective major wrestling promotions with a weekly overview, looking at news and roster developments, results, future line-ups, social media activity, key interviews, plus a timely commentary at the end. We will be featuring similar features on other promotions each week and each will be updated weekly.
•Top Stories of the Week
- Marty Scurll has unofficially (yet to be confirmed by ROH) resigned to a contract with a currently unknown length. It has also been reported that he will take on the duties as booker for the company. It has also been rumored that the existing creative team (Hunter Johnston, Mark LoMonaco, and Todd Sinclair) are said to be staying on to assist with creative.
- Bandido has also reportedly signed an extension with Ring of Honor. Huge news, as Bandido is still one of the few up-and-coming names in the sport that has not entered into the WWE/AEW scope.
- Supercard of Honor will once again grace Lackland, FL over wrestlemania weekend. The New Japan relationship, that never went away, seems to be as strong as ever with the edition of Jay White and Will Ospreay announced for the show.

•Social Media Scene
As the kids say, Got EM!
What a great tweet.
What horrible news, Rocky Johnson passed away, Dwayne's father. Our best to Dwayne, Ricky, Ata and the entire family.
— Dave Meltzer (@davemeltzerWON) January 15, 2020
Wow, wow, wow. A positive news week for ROH. Marty is staying, Bandido resigned, Dragon Lee resigned last week. Jay White and Will Ospreay are working Supercard in April. What a great week to be an ROH fan.
Remember this week, remember 2019. People will say that they stuck with ROH through thick and thin, but if you stuck by ROH in 2019 and are now on the other side, pat yourself on the back. Because it looks like our blind optimism in the company has paid off.
