Jay Lethal signs new contract with ROH


Former ROH World Champion and current ROH Tag Team Champion Jay Lethal has signed a new contract to remain with the company.

It was announced on Wednesday that Lethal has re-signed with Ring of Honor. Lethal currently holds the ROH Tag Team titles with ROH Pure Champion Jonathan Gresham and is part of ROH's The Foundation stable with Gresham, Tracy Williams, and Rhett Titus.

Gresham and Williams are also among the wrestlers to have recently re-signed with ROH. Since the start of January, ROH has announced that Mark Haskins, Bandido, Amy Rose, Bateman, Brian Johnson, Sumie Sakai, Williams, The Bouncers (Beer City Bruiser & Brian Milonas), Gresham, and Lethal have re-signed with the promotion.

Lethal made his ROH debut in 2003. He departed the company in 2006 and has been part of the ROH roster since returning in 2011. He's held the ROH World Championship and ROH Television Championship twice previously and is also a former ROH Pure Champion.

ROH's full announcement regarding Lethal's new contract is available below:

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

Lethal is rightfully regarded as 'The Franchise' in ROH. The Elizabeth, N.J., native made his debut with the company as a teenager in 2003 and is the only man to have held all three singles championships -- the World Title, World Television Title, and Pure Title.

Lethal also is the only man to hold the ROH World and World Television titles simultaneously. He is a two-time winner of both of those championships and holds the record for most days as champion for each title.

His first stint in ROH was from 2003 to 2006. He returned in 2011 and has been with the company ever since. In his mid-thirties, Lethal is still in his prime and continues to be the measuring stick in ROH.

Currently, he is one-half of the ROH World Tag Team Champions with Jonathan Gresham. Lethal and Gresham are members of The Foundation, a quartet of outstanding technical wrestlers whose mission is to 'restore honor' to ROH.
