Top 15 ROH Wrestlers That WWE Should Sign

Ring of Honor’s legacy is strong for the introductions of many future WWE stars to the wrestling world. CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, Kevin Owens and numerous other stars became main event level performers that traveled the world, but their main key to developing their standing before WWE was ROH. The promotion took a chance on going with the identity of “work rate” wrestling following the demises of WCW and ECW. WWE monopolized the industry but ROH created a true alternative that did something different and exciting. The risk paid off and a cult-like following started to take note of the new breed of the next generation’s stars.

WWE did not fully embrace this style due to the smaller sizes of the wrestlers and unconventional in-ring styles. CM Punk’s success started to show how credible and talented the ROH stars were. If Punk loosened the door of opportunity for the hungry Ring of Honor talent, Daniel Bryan kicked the door down with his rise to the top of WWE. The rest of the stars to get signed included household names like Seth Rollins, Cesaro, and Sami Zayn and they all hit home runs with their chances on the main stage to help create a movement for many wrestlers taking the same path to get a look by WWE.

ROH still thrives with a touring brand that does shows in most major cities and a television deal with their parent company Sinclair Broadcasting. The big corporation owning the promotion has led to bigger contracts for the top talents and the potential for growth. The fact that more wrestlers are making full-time livings wrestling for Ring of Honor solely is great but the end goal is still the WWE for most. Between the biggest stage and the potential to make the most money at the end of the day, getting a call from Vince McMahon or Triple H is the dream. These are 15 of the most promising acts in ROH that should be signed by WWE as soon as possible.

Jay Lethal's talent has always been there but he was never given the opportunity to develop into a superstar during his TNA days. Lethal signed with ROH following a release from TNA and blossomed into one of the brightest stars in the business. The ROH Championship is a credible title with the rich history of title holders all being well respected performers that achieved great success in various forms. Lethal holding the ROH Championship for the past year shows just how regarded he is right now and WWE could easily use him as the next big star in NXT or as depth for the main roster. Lethal has outstanding matches, delivers entertaining promos and steps up in the big moment. Lethal seems like the perfect fit with the NXT brand at the moment.
