[ROH] Jay Lethal and Azrieal Leave ROH


– Earlier today, PWInsider.com reported that Ring of Honor dropped Jay Lethal, with him being written out of storylines at last weekend’s shows. ROH’s Web site posted the following statement:

Ring Of Honor has parted ways with Jay Lethal and Azrieal. Both departures were amicable and either could return at any time. This is a result of ROH making some roster changes. Do not believe all the internet reports. We want to thank both for their contributions to ROH. We expect Lethal and Azrieal to both have very successful careers and wish them the best.

– Ring of Honor is adding a weekly “ROH Recap” video on www.ROHVideos.com.
