Michael Elgin posted the following statement on his Facebook earlier today about quitting Ring of Honor via Twitter on Monday (10/6):
I first want to say thank you to all the supporters out there, it has been my pleasure to perform for you.
I want to admit the quitting on twitter is a little childish but I don’t want to be advertised for a show I won’t be a part of.
I will give kudos to ROH for rushing to get me back home, for that I am grateful. I had numerous conversations with the company about all situations that have occurred and told them my stance. I was trying to be business minded and was trying to reach a full understanding that would allow both parties to move forward. Nothing was agreed upon and instead of trying to reach an agreement they announced me for this weekends upcoming shows.
I would not have taken to twitter in this matter as I have held my tongue this entire time. I feel everything that has went down is between the parties involved and no one else. In all that I just don’t want to have people thinking I’ll be somewhere I won’t be.
I love professional wrestling, i have given almost 14 years to it and wouldn’t change it for the world. It’s my passion and what has drove me to become the man I am today. I love and respect Professional wrestling with the upmost regard. Thank you for supporting it and please continue to do so.
Ring of Honor has yet to respond publicly as of this writing to Elgin’s quitting of the company. However, they have removed their article announcing Elgin appearing for them at this weekend’s 10/11 live event in Kalamazoo, Michigan from the ROHWrestling.com website.
