Australian wrestler Slex signs new contract with ROH


One year after first arriving in the promotion, Slex has signed a new contract with Ring of Honor.

It was announced on Thursday that Slex has re-signed with ROH. Slex, who is from Melbourne, Australia, hasn't been able to wrestle for ROH since February of last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. ROH stated that they remain committed to Slex and the rest of their international talent.

Slex had been set to face Jeff Cobb at ROH's 18th Anniversary last March, but that event was canceled due to the pandemic. Cobb was replacing Adam Brooks in that match. Brooks is also from Australia and had been pulled from the 18th Anniversary PPV due to travel issues prior to it being canceled.

Slex made his ROH debut against Flip Gordon last February and has had three matches for ROH in total.

Here's ROH's full announcement regarding Slex's new contract:

Ring of Honor is pleased to announce that Slex has re-signed with the company.

Despite the Australian star not having competed in ROH in nearly a year due to travel restrictions caused by the pandemic, the company remains committed to him and the rest of its international talent.

Known as 'The Business,' Slex signed with ROH at the end of 2019 and made his ROH debut last February.

The Melbourne native is one of the top stars in his home country. Slex was the first Melbourne City Wrestling (MCW) Heavyweight Champion and is one of only three men to have won the title on multiple occasions.

He’s a two-time holder of the MCW Intercommonwealth Championship and also has competed for New Japan Pro-Wrestling.

Mark Haskins, Bandido, Amy Rose, Bateman, Brian Johnson, Sumie Sakai, Tracy Williams, The Bouncers (Beer City Bruiser & Brian Milonas), Jonathan Gresham, Jay Lethal, Rush, Dragon Lee, Kenny King, and ROH Dojo trainee Sledge have also recently re-signed with ROH, while Rush and Dragon Lee's father La Bestia del Ring has signed his first contract with the company.
