Ring of Honor COO Joe Koff emailed Women of Honor Champion Kelly Klein to inform her of the company’s decision not to renew her contract when it expires at the end of the year. Klein’s husband BJ Whitmer took issue with the fact that Koff emailed Klein to inform her of his decision and noted that she is still suffering from post concussion syndrome.
Powell’s POV: Joey Mercury was the first to put the story out there, as he continues to fire shots at ROH management after leaving the company last month. The first concern is that Klein makes a full recovery from her concussion. Once she does, it will be interesting to see what her next move is. AEW would seem to be a logical landing spot given that Whitmer works for the company.
You don’t have to stand with me or for me. You don’t have to like me. You don’t have to understand me. You don’t have to agree with me. You don’t have to believe me.
You can distance yourself from me. You can throw me under the bus. You can hate me.
I hope I helped you anyway.

How dare she!?!? The nerve. That’s what you get, @RealKellyKlein – hey I wonder who else you sent that nice email to? What if Tomorrow’s Summit was actually the resignation of GG & JK!?!? If it isn’t- I’m more than prepared to get LOUD & specific. Talent deserve this treatment. pic.twitter.com/RY2hPdfyX0

Now that the cat is out of the bag. Yes, my wife @RealKellyKlein was fired by @ringofhonor COO Joe Koff, via email Tuesday evening. Not a phone call, an EMAIL. Kelly is still very much suffering from Post Concussion Syndrome and was fired while still injured. https://t.co/0Otra5aq4j
