Kenny King Wants ROH And WWE To Work Together
Will the true ‘forbidden door’ open for ROH?
Ring of Honor’s Kenny King has a lofty dream; he wants ROH and WWE to work together.
With 2021 already proving to be an unpredictable year for wrestling with the ‘forbidden door’ blown off of its hinges, King thinks there could be room for ROH and WWE to enter a working relationship, telling Inside The Ropes:
“Well, I mean there’s a lot of guys that I would like to see come into Ring Of Honor. I mean, if we’re just fantasy booking I’d like love to do LFI versus The New Day, I think that would be an amazing match. I’d love to step in the ring with Kofi Kingston. I Would like to see a guy like Eddie Edwards come home, you know. Eddie Edwards Kenny King, and Eddie Edwards Jay Lethal, and Eddie Edwards Jay Briscoe matches I mean, those would be outrageous. I’d love to see a guy like Chris Bey. Who selfishly is one of my students. I love him to death. I’d like to see a guy like Chris Bey come in, and wrestle a guy like Bandido you know, so the things that are happening now creating these amazing matches into creating these amazing kind of like, what can we do? I mean, to be fair, the only two teams that aren’t participating as much as they should are us and WWE and I feel like maybe it’s about time, right? Maybe it’s about time to bridge over to start working with NXT or working with some of the guys on SmackDown because, you know, it’s just time, right? It’s just time for all of these things to kind of to switch up and I feel it feels like we’re entering into a new era of pro wrestling.”
King believes the only thing stopping such deals from happening is old-school wrestling BS:
“So it’s why not just knock down some of the old stigmas whatnot. I mean, think about what the buzz would be, you know, just what the reciprocation would be, you know, AJ Styles shows up to challenge Jay Lethal if you know what I mean? Like, just or MVP comes, you know to rescue me from getting beat down from Shane Taylor. I mean, Bobby Lashley against SOS, you know? So these are just things that that that make people go ‘wow,’ that would be amazing and realistically it’s possible, there’s nothing that would stop it other than the regular old pro wrestling BS, which I feel like the people that want to survive we’re gonna have to get over."
