Joe Koff Reveals Which ROH Talents He Thinks Will Be Stars

Koff has high hopes for the future

While Ring Of Honor has become more marginalised within professional wrestling in recent years, the company still boasts a deep roster of talent with the likes of Bandido, RUSH, Joe Hendry, Jonathan Gresham and Jay Lethal regularly wrestling in ROH. 

ROH COO Joe Koff is also a big fan of the current roster and he named Dak Draper, Quinn McKay, Brian Johnson and The Soldiers of Savagery as wrestlers he believes will become "major stars."

"Well, you know, it's never been a problem because organically we have always attracted top talent. Now, in the past, we've had wrestling schools or wrestling tryouts and auditions where we would see many of the people that are starring in major promotions actually came out of that," Koff told Inside The Ropes.

"In the last couple of years, especially pre covid, let's put it in the parentheses, we started developing our own talent through our own dojo system and those stars, the Dak Drapers, the Brian Johnsons and S.O.S, the tag team, Quinn McKay, those people are going to be major, major stars in the future, whether they're with Ring of Honor or not, we always hope that they will be."

Four of the talents named by Koff will be in action at Ring Of Honor's July 11 pay-per-view, Best In The World. Brian Johnson will team with PJ Black against The Briscoe Brothers. Dak Draper will also challenge for the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Championship with Dalton Castle and Eli Isom against Shane Taylor and Soldiers of Savagery.
