This weekend, Women of Honor World Champion Kelly Klein has become a central figure in a controversial situation surrounding Ring of Honor. When Joey Mercury parted ways with the company, he publicly criticized Ring of Honor General Manager Greg Gilliland and his handling of talent. Mercury repeatedly talked about Klein, and even revealed her pay and related email exchanges with Gilliland.
With the situation continually making the rounds, Klein took to Twitter to explain why she gave Mercury this sensitive information.
I didn’t bring issues up publicly before. I was afraid for my job and the jobs of my colleagues. I don’t want to take away their place of work. I want to make their place of work better and safer.
Maybe someone will finally listen and let me and others help make things better.

In the Tweet, Klein states she didn’t bring up the issues before because she didn’t want to risk losing her job. She also said she’s hopeful that this situaiton will precipitate some changes. “Maybe someone will finally listen and let me and others help make things better,” wrote Klein.
