Dalton Castle: ROH's Recent Tapings Felt Meaningless

A sad moment for Castle

While Ring Of Honor is set to go on hiatus until April 2022 following Final Battle on December 11 to "reimagine" the promotion, ROH recently held TV tapings to film content up to the final pay-per-view of the year. 

Dalton Castle was in action at those tapings, defeating Dragon Lee for the ROH World Television Championship, but The Charismatic Milkshake admitted on The Gentlemen's Club's Night Cruisin' Podcast that the tapings ultimately felt "meaningless."

"I've only got two months left on my contract before I am completely fired. Ring Of Honor is giving us all the boot at the end of the year. It all feels meaningless actually. We just did a recording, like, three days ago and it was weird because we showed up knowing our jobs are ending," Castle said.

While he may be losing his job at the end of the year, Castle isn't mad at Ring Of Honor. He is simply sad that Ring Of Honor as we know it is coming to an end. 

"I'm not mad at [Ring Of Honor]. Yes, maybe there are some decisions along the way when you look back in hindsight that probably led to this moment. But also, they've given me so much. I've always had such a great time and I'm still wrestling. I'm not mad. I'm sad. I'm sad to see something that I've loved for so long end," Castle continued.

Castle's ROH World Television Title win was the first gold he has held in Ring Of Honor since he dropped the ROH World Championship to Jay Lethal back in June 2018. What he will do after his ROH contract expires remains to be seen.
