ROH News: Ring of Honor removes head booker, replaces with head trainer at wrestling school

Aug 16, 2010 - 12:02:52 AM


By James Caldwell, Torch assistant editor

Delirious8_130WK_6.jpg
PWTorch has confirmed reports on Sunday night that Ring of Honor has replaced Adam Pearce with Delirious (Hunter Johnston) as the head booker of the promotion.

Pearce was ROH's head booker for less than two years after replacing current Dragon Gate USA executive Gabe Sapolsky in October 2008.

Delirious is moving up the ranks in ROH. He is currently head trainer at ROH's Wrestling Academy in Pennsylvania.

Caldwell's Analysis: ROH is certainly in a period of transition with ROH World champion Tyler Black signing with WWE and top star Davey Richards planning to retire at the end of the year. I don't have specifics on the ROH side why Pearce was relieved from his position, but on a related or unrelated note, he has become more involved with the NWA recently. Pearce, as the NWA World Hvt. champion, has recently increased his NWA bookings. He's also expected to be involved with the new "NWA Championship Wrestling from Hollywood" TV project. The big kick-off for that is later this month when they begin filming new episodes.
