ROH COO Joe Koff Speaks About Ring of Honor's Hiatus

ROH COO Joe Koff Speaks About Ring of Honor's Hiatus

Ring of Honor recently held their Final Battle: End of an Era event, which marked the beginning of their hiatus that's currently planned to end in April of 2022.

During an appearance on the ROH Strong podcast, ROH COO Joe Koff spoke about the decision.

“I know he doesn’t like to hear about this, and I’m not really going to spend a lot of time because anything I would say here, I’ve already said to him personally. He has been a remarkable partner for me. He is one of the smartest minds in the business, and he would probably be one of the smartest minds in any business because he’s a good thinker. He’s a critical thinker. He’s emotionally non-emotional. He understands what is supposed to happen in the ring. He’s wrestled in his past and sometimes still wrestles. He knows what’s going on. He knows what it’s supposed to feel like. He’s not someone who’s asking anyone to do anything he hasn’t done himself. That to me is very pivotal in my leadership team. I want people who are followed because they believe in what they believe in. Hunter is a classic example of that. I never even knew this was a statistic, but someone told me he’s the longest continual booker of any promotion. The reason he is that is because he knows what I’m looking for and he knows how to execute that. It’s his vision, it’s my vision, it’s our vision. I’m not going to tell him who should be in what match. I don’t know enough about it.”

“I run Ring of Honor as a business unit. It’s a business and you make decisions for business. Yes, some of them are not popular. Some of them may not even be warm and fuzzy, but they’re businesses because we are in business. If I could independently operate Ring of Honor, maybe I would think differently, but I don’t think so because I’m a businessman. I’ve always been a businessman. I’m a capitalist. I like to believe in the entrepreneurial spirit, and sometimes you just have to make certain decisions that, yeah, unfortunately, they might not seem to be popular or the right thing to do, but it’s my choice and it’s my decision. I live by that. I’m not asking anyone else to take responsibility for that. I’ll take responsibility for the outcomes. No one else but me. I’m responsible for that. I’m ok with that. I think that everyone loves the romance and the sexiness of the sport, but it’s still a business, and all businesses have to run operationally sound, and you make decisions to get yourself in that position.”
