January 21, 2019 Observer Newsletter: Ring of Honor signs Rush, more


The latest in the land grab for top tier talent is that ROH has signed William Munoz Gonzalez, 30, better known as Rush, to an exclusive one-year U.S./Ontario market contract.

The deal, believed to be for approximately $155,000 per year, is added to Munoz’s five year deal with CMLL which runs until the end of 2020.

The contract takes Rush out of MLW’s attempt at the biggest match of its run, on the 4/4 show in New York a the Melrose Ballroom that was built around Rush vs. L.A. Park.

This is after the angle for the match was shot on the live special. Pentagon Jr. will face Park in that show’s main event. Pentagon Jr. had already been booked on the High Spots WrestleCon Super Show on 4/4 going head-to-head, but the agreement was already worked out where he and Fenix’s match would go on early on the High Spots show, and he would then go on last on the MLW show.
