Re: Jim Cornette removed from ROH creative. Delirious now head booker.
Hunter "Delirious" Johnson has taken over as the head of Ring of Honor's creative direction effective immediately. The ROH locker room was informed on Saturday at the promotion's Rahway, NJ debut.
Jim Cornette and ROH came to a mutual decision on the change I am told. Cornette will remain with the company in a backstage role and will assist Johnson as well as working on production and logistics.
Cornette will be written out of ROH storylines with an angle where he was attacked backstage by an irate Jay Lethal in the fallout of the no contest with Kevin Steen in Rahway. ROH will be running stories on their website to explain the changes with Cornette's exit from his authority figure role.
That's great to hear. I'm glad Jim is staying with the promotion, I'm sure he has a lot to offer.
But I think they really needed a change.
Do not like this whole storytelling from their website though.
I always have to avoid the damn thing because the TV show is so far behind and I hate spoilers.
But I think this could be big!
