"Ring Of Honor owner Cary Silkin removed Gabe Sapolsky from the head booker's position with the company after last night's event in Edison, NJ. We were told that there wasn't any major blow up, but rather that the company is going in a different direction.

Ring of Honor is announcing that Gabe Sapolsky will be leaving the company effective immediately. Everybody at ROH would like to thank him for his contributions and wish him well in all future endeavors.
Going forward Ring of Honor will be focusing on the stories and the talent in the ring. The company will have no further comments on this issue or a replacement for Mr. Sapolsky. We would like to thank all of the fans and media who have supported us over the years and look forward to bringing you more great wrestling excitement in the future."

Damn it.....I like Gabe....Hopefully he will still be involved in FIP, if that still exists.....Gabe helped transform ROH into an internet powerhouse.....I just hope they pick his replacement wisely.

I can't imagine why. I always assumed he did all the booking. How similar will the company be without him ?

This looks like a major shift in strategy, he was the major booker. I just hope they don't ruin a great thing.

Honestly , my interest in ROH has seriously lessened over the last few months. Maybe a shake-up in the booking is what it needs ? It's weird that they're refusing to comment on who will do the job from now on. I'm praying Cary hasn't decided he knows what's up. People are also speculating about Bushwhacker Luke but that's ever crazier to me.

No booker can bring Lacey back. Therefore what can they really do improve ROH?

Yeah. I wouldn't be surprised if Cary decided he's the one who's gonna take the reins. Could end up blowing up in his face. They're definitely preparing the jump to network TV, maybe this shake-up has something to do with repackaging the product towards that goal. It can prove positive, or be a bad thing.

Meltzer is saying Adam Pearce is going to be the lead guy on the booking front. That sounds incredible. From "We just don't have a spot for you" to booking the promotion a few weeks later and the guy who fired you is gone.

I can tell now this is going to be one hell of a strange week for ROH with the restructure.

Would they just sign Tornado already?

I'd mark out for a HT & Ruckus vs. Briscoes


He's injured right now.

I'd be interested if they got a TV deal. As long as it's not the Mynetwork. It would be easier for people to follow the product.

Very very interesting, as I think ROH has done a fantastic job with its booking mainly due to Gabe Sapolsky. Here's hoping ROH's booking will remain as strong as Gabe's, if not better.

Now if TNA was smart they'd immediately grab Gabe and have him book for their company, seeing they REALLY need some booking changes. WWE could also do the same thing.

I've heard WWE don't want him

Also, what would happen to FIP if ROH went down?
