Former Ring Of Honor (ROH) World Champion Jay Lethal was recently interviewed by Sportskeeda to talk about several professional wrestling topics. During the conversation, Lethal was asked about the landscape of professional wrestling, and where he sees it going.
Especially with the introduction of All Elite Wrestling (AEW) into the mix. Lethal was also asked if he sees himself remaining with ROH, or possibly heading over to AEW or WWE in the future.
Here’s what he had to say:
I see wrestling going on a gradual uphill trend and continuing that trend. The more wrestling promotions out there for fans to watch the better. How boring would it be and how boring was it when there was only one show in town and that was all you could watch? Imagine one wrestling fan having only 1 or 2 favorite wrestlers.
Now with the click of a button, that wrestling fan can watch almost every wrestling promotion that he or she wants around the world. Now they can have 15 to 20 favorite wrestlers. Where do I see myself? There is no telling what tomorrow will hold. As far as where I want to be, my longtime dream was to make it in professional wrestling.
To me, what making it was, was being able to buy a house, and buy a car, and pay your bills without needing an extra job. Just solely from the money that I make from wrestling. Ring of Honor has provided me with the opportunity to do so. I am extremely thankful for that.
They have also given me opportunities that no other wrestling company that I’ve worked for has given me until now have given me. Hopefully, the future holds me doing something with or in Ring of Honor.
