Dalton Castle signs new deal with ROH

Ring of Honor announced on Tuesday that Dalton Castle has signed a new agreement with the company.

We reported back on January 10 that Castle (real name Brett Giehl) was a free agent and was given a “good” offer from ROH, but was exploring all of his options.

Castle first signed with Ring of Honor in 2013. He defeated Cody Rhodes for the ROH World title at the company’s 2017 Final Battle PPV.  Then due to a number of injuries, including a broken back, Castle would drop the title to Jay Lethal on June 30, 2018. He also has held the ROH Six-Man Tag Team Titles with The Boys.

The 34-year old Castle holds a degree in Communications and Theatre.  He began his wrestling career in Rochester, New York in 2009.

Ring of Honor is pleased to announce that Dalton Castle has re-signed with the company.

There had been speculation in recent months regarding Castle’s future, but after his victory over Josh Woods at the 19th Anniversary pay-per-view on Friday, the former ROH World Champion told backstage correspondent Quinn McKay: “I ain’t going nowhere. I’m staying in Ring of Honor.”

Castle, one of the most charismatic and colorful athletes in pro wrestling, made his ROH debut in 2013. He competed in the 2015 Top Prospect Tournament and has been a fixture in ROH ever since.

Castle reached the pinnacle of the sport when he won the ROH World Championship from Cody at Final Battle 2017. He also is a former co-holder of the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Title.
