When ROH was purchased by Sinclair Broadcasting Group, ROH COO Joe Koff said at the time, "I'd like to believe our guys are content to wrestle with the ROH brand, strategy, and work, but I wouldn't want to stop them if WWE came calling. That is the pinnacle. This is no different than working AAA ball and the Big Show (Major League Baseball) calls them."
Dave Meltzer at f4wonline.com has confirmed that longtime ROH tag team The Briscoe Brothers were considered for hiring by WWE, but were not offered contracts due to their contract with ROH. PWTorch.com is also reporting that Adam Cole, who will appear in this weekend's main event of the 10th Anniversary Show, was also considered for a WWE contract but was not offered for the same reason.
Update on Briscoe Brothers and Adam Cole story concerning WWE contracts:
The story that the Briscoes Brothers and Adam Cole were blocked by ROH from signing with WWE was changed to more accurately reflect that WWE sent out feelers on the possibility of offering contracts, but were rebuked. No contracts were ever offered to any of the men as best as can be determined.
Surprised ROH blocked WWE this time.
I have to admit that there's a part of me, the ROH fan part, that is glad about this.
