ROH extends deal with Kenny King, signs another

Ring of Honor passed this along:

(Bristol, PA – September 13, 2010) Ring of Honor officials are excited to announce that we have come to terms with “The Pretty Boy Pitbull” Kenny King on a contract extension. One-half of The All Night Express, King has been a part of the ROH roster since “Motor City Madness 2007” and has slowly evolved into one of the most exciting in-ring performers around.

From exciting singles performances against the likes of Tyler Black, Bryan Danielson, and Jay Briscoe just this weekend, to his tag team success alongside “Addicted to Love” Rhett Titus, Kenny King has proven to be arguably the most athletically gifted wrestler in Ring of Honor. And with the likes of Austin Aries mentoring his career, King is certainly a future world champion.

“There are big things on the horizon for this talented young man.” said ROH Executive Producer Jim Cornette. “He is a stellar athlete with a tremendous upside. Despite his general attitude, we are excited to see what the future has in store for Kenny King here in ROH.”

In addition ROH officials would also like to announce that, following a stellar outing against the aforementioned Austin Aries that saw him kick out of Aries’ Brainbuster, independent standout Kyle O’Reilly has also been signed to a contract with Ring of Honor. This young man from Canada has been impressing people across the wrestling world in recent months, and has signed on to ROH for the foreseeable future. If he continues to impress as he did against a 2-time World Champion, O’Reilly has a bright future ahead of him.
