It has been reported this week that WWE is interested in several Ring of Honor wrestlers (including The Briscoe Brothers and Adam Cole), but was unable to sign these wrestlers because they are under contract with ROH.

ROH officials have stated that they would not prevent their contracted talent from fielding offers from WWE and moving up to the “big leagues” – so this news has received a lot of attention.

Jay Briscoe, one of the men at the center of the story, posted the following message on Twitter on Thursday night, calling the reports false:

“Just to set shit straight, ROH didnt block us from gettin signed to the WWE. The internet is f*cking stupid.”
