We have reports of The Briscoe's rumored to be signing with WWE, Eddie and Davey have hinted they're signing with either TNA or WWE, Rhett Titus was backstage at Raw which can only mean he's in talks with them, and Mike Bennett is signing with WWE. Lol i mean can ROH survive that much of a talent loss? Thats a pretty big chunk of their roster gone if all the rumors are true.
With the exception of the Briscoe's I don't think they're losing much. I was never big on bennett or Titus. Eddie and Davey are boring most of the time. I was a big Davey fan in 2011, but I'm kind of glad he's going.
I think they should be alright. I think business wise they're in good shape and these moves might force them to do something in regards to their real problem, the product. It's boring.

Yeah but all these guys are leaving around the same exact time, can they make newer stars that quickly? I mean i don't know the exact time frame when they lost Joe, Styles, and Daniels but i can only think it was kinda spread a bit and they didn't didn't all leave at the same time. And even then that was 3 guys and now 6 guys are leaving almost at the same exact time.
Once all those guys are gone ROH isn't gonna have hardly any stars left. Elgin, Steen and Ciampa are the 2 big main one thats sticking around and thats good but they're all faces. And the tag division is gonna take a big hit with The American Wolves and The Briscoe's leaving, what other tag teams are left? Coleman and Alexander, and Red Dragon is the only teams i can think of, and they lost the WGTT earlier this year.
I really don't know if ROH can recover from this loss. They better get some big indy names with them and quick.
There has only been one real exodus in Pro Wrestling that I know of. When WCW started raiding WWF's roster. These were the days when WWF employees didn't have contracts.
And even then, Shawn stayed, the Undertaker stayed...
Bret stayed at the begining.
1. They were never without marketable people, ROH isn't without marketable people now.
2. It's very easy to build up new stars and it doesn't take a lot of time. Look at the Ultimate Warrior and Daniel Bryan.
There is whole world of indy talent out there that isn't even on the WWE's or TNA's radar. Plus, the WWE and TNA are always letting people go that they shouldn't. ROH has a lot going for it financially. They can sign people for 12 month contracts, and longer even. Almost every Indy can't say that.
